Spenfield House

Spenfield House is a Grade ll listed Victorian Mansion, completed in 1877 and situated in the Weetwood Conservation Area. The property has been converted in to seven luxury apartments.

Spenfield House was constructed in 1876 by George Corson, the architect who also designed the Grand Theatre in Leeds. Corson was commissioned by James Walter Oxley, son of Henry Oxley a senior partner in the bank of William, Williams, Brown & Co. The house remained the property of the Oxley family until 1948, when it was passed to Leeds City Corporation and then in 1974 to Yorkshire Water. The Greenalls Group Plc acquired the house in late 1997.

Now you can be the custodian and join the history of this magnificently restored part of Leeds' heritage.

Communal Entrance Hall

On the half landing stained glass stone mullion windows provide an impressive reception, whilst the restored stained glass lantern over the atrium is a superb feature and floods the hallway with natural light.

The Peacock Room

Accessed via the main communal hallway, this opulant room was Oxley's former dining room and will be available to residents to use (with prior arrangement via the managing agents). This room features well preserved features including the grandiose carved ceiling as well as restored silk panels designed by William Morris.
