A Jewel in the North West’s crown, Lytham is one of Lancashire’s premier coastal towns and a much sought-after place to live.
Lytham was once voted third best small town to live in the world* for its natural heritage, wealth of community activity and examples of environmentally sensitive practices.
David Tinsley, of Lytham Estate Agents, commented: “I was born and raised here in Lytham and have watched its popularity grow immensely. It is now somewhere people aspire to live and many of those who were named on the Sunday Times Rich List have homes in the area. Lytham appeals to a wide cross section of buyers including those who want a second home by the sea and those who used to holiday in the area and want to retire here.”
He added: “The popularity of the town is reflected in property prices and rental values. We recently sold a home for £1.65 million which is unusual for the time of year, particularly in the current economic climate.”
A traditional coastal town in a stunning part of the Fylde Peninsula, Lytham enjoys a low crime rate and has some excellent schools.
Award-winning housebuilder Redrow has recently launched a new development at Lytham Quays
, featuring just 10 bespoke large and luxurious villas.
Boasting stunning views over the Ribble estuary, the properties are priced from £1.24 million and enjoy an exceptionally high specification outside and in, including warm and welcoming hallways with solid oak flooring and staircases that make grand entrances to the homes. Internal doors throughout will be crafted from oak.
Open plan layouts put a combined kitchen and family area, with views over the estuary, at the heart of the villas. The kitchens boast Corian work surfaces and sinks, with the very best integrated AEG appliances.
Formal dining rooms are ideal for those who love to entertain and at the end of the day guests can retire to their own guest suite, including walk-in wardrobe and sumptuous en-suite. The Admirals Reach style villa also boasts a balcony which overlooks the estuary.
Purchasers will be able to tailor parts of the home to their lifestyle. For example, on the lower ground floor there will be an area that could be adapted as a cinema room, gym or dedicated lounge for teenage children.
Bedrooms in each of the villas with either have walk-in wardrobes or fitted wardrobes. There will be Ideal Standard designer bathrooms including wet rooms in some instances and sunken baths.
From their sumptuous master bedroom home owners will be able to step out on to balconies overlooking the estuary.
“Lytham really is a great place to live and the Redrow development at Lytham Quays has added to the choice of properties available in the area,” David said.
“In years gone by people used to come to places by the sea, such as Lytham to recuperate. While its popularity has grown it’s not too widely known and is somewhat a hidden gem and the jewel in the crown of the North West. Lytham even seems to boast its own microclimate, which means the weather is often better than other parts of the North West enabling residents to enjoy attractive coastal walks, a spot of shopping in the chic boutique stores or perhaps even a round of golf on one of several superb championship courses in the area.”
Lytham enjoys a commuter-friendly setting with good access to the motorway networks putting the towns and cities of the North West within easy reach. Preston is only 30 minutes away by car, while Manchester can be reached in around an hour.
