There are over 3,000 Grade II listed buildings in Leeds; Grade II Listed is a status which protects buildings due to their special architectural or historic interest. They range from historically significant buildings such as the Leeds Corn Exhange to Tudor Cottages.

From time to time, these buildings come on the market with us and we always enjoy taking a look at why they’ve been granted this special status and the stories behind them. One of the most recent listed buildings to come on the market with us is Lawns House, an imposing building, which has been converted into a stunning home, found in Wortley.


Lawns House, which is in New Farnley, has a long and vibrant history, spanning almost 90 years - being used for a variety of purposes, and often acting as a significant part of the community.

The earliest photograph we could find of Lawns House comes from 1952 when it was known as Lawns House School. From 1943 to 1957, it was a school which educated the deaf and partially deaf. 

 It was purpose built in 1932 as the “Farnley Open Air School for Debilitated Children” and welcomed children with health problems, including Asthma etc.

Since the above photograph was taken, the other buildings have been demolished, however, the stunning main building remains, and it has been renovated exceptionally.
