Our Office Advisory team has recently sold Kitson House, an iconic Grade II listed country house forming part of the Elmete Hall site to Industruct Limited.

Situated in Roundhay along with the neighbouring Nicholson House, an affluent and diverse northern suburb of Leeds, the 5,700 sq ft property borders Roundhay Park, one of the largest city parks in Europe attracting nearly one million visitors each year.

The historic building has seen extensive redevelopment over the years, whilst maintaining many of the original period features including the peacock cupola dome lighting and cast-iron circular staircase in the main hall.

The adjacent Nicholson House (6,996 sq ft) is still available for sale. Both properties are currently utilised as offices, offering versatile potential for redevelopment across various sectors subject to planning.

Matt Procter, Surveyor at Lambert Smith Hampton, said: “We are delighted to have found a new owner for this historic site in the heart of Roundhay. The sale of Kitson House underscored the appeal of heritage properties in desirable locations, and we look forward to seeing the property’s continued revitalisation along with the potential offered by the neighbouring Nicholson House.”
