Shaw Lane is the development of a former Victorian ‘gardener’s cottage’ and its grounds to create two unique three-bedroom homes. The scheme is located in the sought-after Far Headingley Conservation area of Leeds.
Working closely with the local planning department, Robinson Developments designed a striking new scheme for this unique and hidden site. The original building dates back to the late 1800s (1895). Records show that it was built as a ‘gardener’s cottage’ for the market garden that served the larger houses in the area.
The development comprises of two beautifully-designed properties including the renovation of an existing cottage and a newly built property constructed within the grounds.
The cottage has been extended and renovated to create a bespoke and spacious, modern family home. The character of the cottage has been retained and the roof space opened up in a contemporary fashion to expose the beams. The design of the new build property complements the architecture of the original building while incorporating modern features and open plan living.
Both properties provide one-storey, open plan living accommodation, three-bedrooms with master ensuite shower room, modern fixtures and fittings throughout, Nolte kitchens, Italian porcelain tiles, off-road parking, lockable bike sheds and private gardens.
Shaw Lane is situated in the leafy surrounds of Far Headingley, a place of special character and historical interest. The development is a short walk from the centres of Headingley and Meanwood, which boast a good mix of shopping and leisure facilities; it is just five miles from Leeds city centre and ten miles from Bradford city centre.
