Listed Lawns House restored to former glory

Project Description

RDF were awarded the Principle Contract because of our works on similar prestigious historic and listed projects, a fact supported by our recent Local Authority Building Control Award for Construction Excellence in the Conversion and Restoration category.

RDF have transformed the listed property into eight individually designed Freehold Homes, beautifully combining the historic surroundings with the finer features of modern day living. Complementing the original building is a detached new build bungalow with impressive portico entrance, located within the landscaped grounds.

Exuding character Lawns House is a superb conversion and presents eight of the most striking two and three bedroom properties in West Yorkshire. Throughout conversion the utmost care has been taken to retain the original period features, including high ceilings, ornate covings, deep skirting’s and sash windows. Manufacture of the sliding sash window units was undertaken in our joinery shop based at our offices in Wortley, and are just a further example of the quality timber product that we are able to produce.

Internal fixtures and fittings have been selected with consideration given to the history and setting of each property without compromising standards, incorporating character kitchens with integrated appliances, period style fire places and traditional bathrooms. All works including internal fit our have been managed by the RDF team.

Located within its own gated community the properties come with private gardens and communal living spaces surrounded by woodland.

Bordering Farnley Park, with country walks and bridleways yet possessing excellent access to the Ring Road and Motorway network the properties offer the best of both worlds with the opportunity to lead a country lifestyle within a short commute of the vibrant City of Leeds.
