Spinning Acres: A Unique And Highly Successful Development In Far Headingley

The fabulous Spinning Acres site at Far Headingley has been under our stewardship since 2007 when we purchased the land from Leeds University.  It had formerly been the location of various blocks of student accommodation known as Tetley Hall. 

Since then, a great deal of time, effort, community consultation and sheer dedication has resulted in the ongoing transformation of this site. 

Today, it is an award-winning private rental development offering an exciting range of luxuriously appointed rental properties which are arguably amongst the best in the Leeds area. 

Just three miles northeast of Leeds city centre and to the north of Headingley, renters can enjoy this superb urban village setting with the benefit of all the Headingley amenities – whilst starting and ending each day with an outlook onto mature trees and green open space – yet still able to reach the city within twenty minutes.    

The team behind Spinning Acres are committed to ensuring that it remains one of the most unique private rented schemes of its kind and their combined spirit of innovation and attention to the smallest detail will continue to shape the way in which Spinning Acres evolves in future phases. 

Planned With The Utmost Care 

By mid-2019, we had completed the first three phases of the site offering a stunning collection of one, two, three, four and five-bedroom homes – apartments, terraced houses, new build and newly renovated historic properties. 

These are now fully let. 

Our next phases will see further homes, two and three-bedroom apartments becoming available for rental – all designed to reflect the special character and history of the site and its established reputation. 

Spinning Acres has been designed to cater for a wide range of private tenants at different stages of their lives as we seek to create a new community in this part of the city. 

At Spinning Acres, we have revolutionised the rental experience so that it becomes a secure long term housing option. Each property has been specifically designed for the rental market and those who choose to rent instead. It is an ideal option for all age groups offering safe and secure accommodation in beautiful surroundings. 

A High-Quality Specification Across All Our Properties

Family homes include a family bathroom with four-piece suite, master bedroom with en suite, shower room and ground floor WC. 

Externally, all properties have an outlook onto mature trees and open spaces.  Family homes have their own gardens which can be personalised with our design team if desired. 

All properties are fully appointed with superb kitchens featuring high quality, fitted, super sleek kitchen units. 

Built-in Neff or Capel appliances together with Franke sinks and ample food preparation areas beguile even the most reluctant chefs into mastery of the culinary arts. 

Quality British-made Twyford’s sanitary ware and bathroom suites are smart, practical and durable.  Bathrooms are designed along clean, minimal and uncluttered lines. 

Internally, the rooms are well proportioned, reflecting modern, contemporary minimalist styles – clean, uncomplicated design complemented by heritage colour Farrow & Ball feature walls.  

Renters can opt for furnished or unfurnished accommodation, which is reflected in the rental price.   

Where furnished, the furnishings pay homage to the wool and cotton industries from which the development takes its name.  British fabrics made by Moon on modern design sofas through to 100 percent wool carpets – this standard of furnishing is the norm at Spinning Acres. 

We also provide a year-round call out service for maintenance and repairs, so help is always at hand with a 24-hour emergency contact. 

An Urban Village Revealed With Each New Phase

Phases one and two have already won two residential awards – the Best New High Volume Housing Development in the Local Authority Building Control awards and the Best Small Development in the Yorkshire Residential Property Awards, beating off still competition to do so. 

A sense of community is central to its design.  What makes it a unique development in these days of overcrowded cities, is the magnificent two-acre village green at its heart.   

Here, residents can relax, picnic, participate in Yoga or Tai Chi, welcome carol singers, watch outdoor drama and generally just get to know their neighbours within a safe, secure and mutually supportive setting. 

“We have certainly tried very hard with this scheme to make it one that works for everybody whilst still retaining a lot of the very special qualities of the site. All properties at Spinning Acres are for private rental – and take the rental concept to a new and innovative level. 

“We are not only setting the standard for private rental schemes. We are creating a high-quality environment specifically tailored to the needs of the sector and to suit a wide range of occupiers. We are not interested in the ‘fast build and sell out’ strategy which is so often the case with private landlords.  

Pickard Properties is in business for the long-term and this is how we hope our tenants feel about us. We value private renters and seek a long-term relationship with you.”
