This Lytham property has been lovingly restored to create a historic home with luxurious family living
Where: Warton Hall, Lodge Lane, Lytham
What: This magnificent residence occupies a superb rural position only a mile and a half from the centre of Lytham.
It was originally built for the Clifton Family, who had their main residence at Lytham Hall.
Warton Hall was constructed in a classic Georgian manner in the mid-19th century for Captain Augustus Wykenham Clifton and his new bride.
It was designed with a first floor full-width balcony set beneath a Westmorland green slate roof with wide, overhanging under bordered eaves. The property has been the subject of loving modernisation in recent years.
Inside: The living areas, kitchen and bathrooms have all been refurbished and the interior has been decorated in Farrow & Ball paints with great attention to detail. Much research was done by the owners to ensure the modernisation work was in keeping with the buildings history.
On the ground floor is a luxury fitted dining kitchen, five well-proportioned reception rooms, a study and a studio. The first floor has six double bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Nearby is Holly Cottage, originally the staff quarters. It has four bedrooms, two of them en suite.
Outside: Warton Hall stands in approximately five acres of landscaped grounds with a curved illuminated driveway approached through electric wrought iron gates.
The grounds are beautifully maintained, principally laid to lawn and bordered by mature woodland supporting a host of spring flowers, evergreen conifers and rhododendron bushes.
Adjoining the side lawned garden, a terrace leads to the front entrance and continues down the side of the property giving additional access to the rear courtyard and original garaging.
There is a further rear service entrance which is shared by another property.
Points of interest include a weeping hornbeam, thought to be 400 years old.
