Phase Three: Cotton Works

Phase Three: Cotton Works - blending tradition with modernity

Phase three of Spinning Acres, Cotton Works, will be released in June 2019. This impressive, high quality redevelopment of a late Victorian villa, known originally as Burton Lea, provides three exquisite two-bedroom apartments and three superb one-bedroom apartments, all with stunning views onto mature trees and the ample, green open space of this unique urban oasis in Far Headingley.

From a neutral palette of soft white and light colours with some strongly coloured feature walls throughout, the back drop to our living spaces at Spinning Acres reflects the natural hues of cotton wool and flax from which we have evolved the Spinning Acres brand, as well as the site’s industrial heritage.  This creates the perfect blank canvas for modern lifestyles in Leeds.

For those who appreciate the timeless elegance of the Victorian era yet demand the ultimate in modern fixtures, fittings and services, Cotton Works offers a unique take on apartment living and will appeal to the discerning professional, recent retiree or downsizer.

Phase Two: Cloth Halls

The main living space benefits from large, double glazed bay windows at ground and first floor levels, with a leafy vista from all floors — while the top floor apartments, in keeping with the influence of the Victorian era, have wonderfully high ceilings, including Velux roof lights, which provide a high standard of natural daylight. 

With less importance being paid to separate living and dining areas today, the kitchen has to be much more than a kitchen — it is also part of your living space — so we have worked extra hard to ensure it is thoughtfully laid out. This means that if friends or family come around to visit, you can still socialise while cooking, and take part in the conversation.


Our kitchen designs reflect a degree of individuality and are both stylish yet functional, offering ample food preparation space and a range of integrated appliances. These include black electric ceramic induction hobs by Bosch and Bosch single ovens, alongside integrated microwaves, integrated extractors, integrated Hotpoint dishwashers, washer/dryers and stainless steel Franke sinks. 

With five different kitchen designs to choose from – all German made – some apartments feature a clean run of units down one wall to create sleek, modern styling, without distraction, while others are fitted to three walls. Wood grains are complemented by matt lacquered unit doors and glass splash backs, plus internal extractor fans.

Bathrooms by Yorkshire firm, Scudo, create spaces which exude style and sophistication while blending modern innovation with the timeless appeal of classic bathroom design. Modern glass shower cubicles, brilliant white, wall-hung washbasins and sanitary ware are complemented by five different combinations of tiles throughout the development in both smooth and ridged tiles, with a focus on texture to create interest.

All large double bedrooms come with an ample array of power points and feature fitted slide robes, perfectly suited to the creation of smart and uncluttered space. Two-bedroom apartments include balconettes to the master bedroom so that you can throw open the windows on sunny summer days and feel at one with the leafy setting of Spinning Acres.

Phase One

The Bobbins, The Yarn, The Boll House & The Spindles

Spinning Acres — a new approach to living for those who choose the flexibility of homes to rent rather than buy.

At Spinning Acres in Leeds we have revolutionised the rental experience so that it becomes a secure long-term rental.

Each aspect of this development is as individual as you are. The wide range of accommodation has been developed with specific renter profiles in mind.

Offering contemporary styling throughout, Phase One will be attractive to those who are ready to embrace the many benefits of living in a rental property, which is not only perfectly appointed and ready to move into straight away, but also eliminates any need for DIY or home maintenance.

Phase One consists of a range of four-bedroom properties, an imposing five-bedroom semi-detached property, and a two-bedroom converted stable.

All properties are individually styled and no one property looks the same in terms of fixtures and fittings.

These homes are situated in the highly sought-after suburb of Far Headingley, just north of central Headingley.
