When it comes to the history of Leeds, there are countless significant names, which have helped to shape the city which we live in.

 

From the likes of global stars like Mel B and the Kaiser Chiefs to historical figures such as Prime Minister Henry Asquith… amongst the famous names is one who has shaped the way that the city looks.

Born in 1821, Cuthbert Brodrick is the architect responsible for designing some of the city’s most iconic buildings, including the striking Leeds Town Hall and the uniquely shaped Corn Exchange.

 

Brodrick was a born traveler and drew inspiration from the architecture of buildings across the world. He was heavily influenced by Italian design, which is often said to have inspired the unique structure of the Corn Exchange, which to this day, attracts millions of visitors each year Over the years, Brodrick has been honoured in a variety of ways, with a Blue Plaque, numerous books and even a recent documentary based on his life and work.

One of Broderick’s lesser known, but equally well-designed buildings can be found in the suburb of Headingley, and is now on the market with Manning Stainton.

 

Brodrick Court is a striking building, with a number of details similar to those found in his most famous designs. Built in 1859, a year before work started on the Corn Exchange, the house remains and is a Grade II listed building.

The property is split into two homes, which are both on the market for £235,000. Potential buyers will be attracted by the character features, which include grandiose bay windows, high-quality stone, and intricately carved stone features.

 

 

Inside are high ceilings, large rooms, and a myriad of features which are sure to be attractive to those interested in both architecture and history.
