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.
