A pair of Grade II Listed semi detached cottages in Rodley could be restored and rejuvenated – if plans submitted to Leeds City Council are successful.
The cottages, off Rock Lane, were built in the 18th century and applicant Robert Cardis, of Pool-in-Wharfedale, aims to return them to their original condition.
Repairs will be made to the roof using original materials. Original features will all be retained.
A design and access statement submitted with the proposals said:
“The cottages are to be renovated in order to return them to their original
state, removing the deteriorating render in order to rejuvenate the original Yorkshire stone. Necessary repairs will be made to the roof using original materials. Original features will all be retained.”
Land to the front of the properties is currently separated into one large piece of land and one smaller, these will be made even to create two lawned gardens leading from the cottages to the Rock Lane boundary wall.
