The former Leeds headquarters of the Rugby Football League has undergone a conversion with a difference – into a £1m-plus collection of modern apartments.

Developers have kicked off a new era for the historic site on Chapeltown Road by transforming it into V2 Mansions, featuring 14 furnished flats with monthly rents starting at £795 which will be ready to move into next month.

The gated complex offers a collection of modern one and two-bedroom furnished apartments, some of which are duplex and with two bathrooms.

The landmark site was the original permanent home of the RFL for more than 73 years until the sport moved to Red Hall House on the outskirts of the city in 1995.

The site then became council offices before being vacated and falling into disrepair.

“The restoration of the building and conversion into V2 Mansions, with the retention of its brickwork and mature trees in the large communal gardens, provides an attractive gateway to the area from north Leeds,” said Paul Bridgeman, branch manager of Linley & Simpson, Chapel Allerton.

“This is a rare opportunity to live in a brand new renovated apartment, offering very generous and light spaces.

“Located a short walk from the increasingly-popular suburb of Chapel Allerton and just 10 minutes' drive from the city centre, the flats offer good access to both Chapel Allerton and St James’ hospitals.

“All apartments have been fitted out to a high standard, with good quality fixtures, fittings and modern decoration throughout.”
