Prestigious property named best family home

It's been impressing buyers all year and now a luxurious Lancashire residence has been named best family new build in the Northern Design Awards.

Admirals Reach, the prestigious showhome at Redrow’s exclusive development The Villas at Lytham Quays, wowed a respected panel of judges and was announced the winner of the best family new build award at a gala dinner in Manchester.

Northern Design Awards event manager Shelley Bond said:  “Our 2013 event was a fantastic evening for all involved. We saw a huge increase in the number of entries and guests, and thoroughly enjoyed recognising the finalists in a great atmosphere.”

Redrow’s award-winning entry Admirals Reach is one of 10 large and luxurious £1.25million-plus villas at Lytham Quays.  The intimate gated development was previously highly commended at the UK Property Awards in the category of best development with multiple units.

Grand and imposing, Admirals Reach offers 4,500 sq ft of accommodation with a combined kitchen, breakfast area and family room at its heart. There’s also a dining room for more formal entertaining, a lounge that offers somewhere quiet to relax and a cinema room.

Over the upper floors there are five bedrooms, each with its own en-suite, making it perfect for family living; while the master bedroom boasts its own lounge area plus a balcony overlooking the estuary, offering parents a tranquil retreat.

Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), commented: “We’re ecstatic to have won the best family new build category in the Northern Design Awards. It’s an accolade that recognises the hard work and dedication of all the team – from the architects who created an impressive and imposing home with distinctive external design to the interior designers who styled the property as the home of an affluent family. They all paid impeccable attention to detail to create a grand residence that is truly aspirational. And while Admirals Reach has now been sold there are still opportunities for discerning buyers to purchase a prestigious villa at Lytham Quays.”

Famed for its bijou charm, upmarket lifestyle and an appealing collection of boutiques and restaurants, plus top golf courses, Lytham is much sought-after as a place to live. With views over Lytham Green and the Ribble Estuary, The Villas enable buyers to embrace living on the coast.
