Admiral's Reach, The Villas at Lytham Quay
ADMIRALS REACH, THE VILLAS AT LYTHAM QUAYS, BY REDROW HOMES
The Villas at Lytham Quays is an exclusive gated enclave of 10 large and luxurious properties in the sought-after Lancashire coastal town of Lytham. These £1.24 million pound-plus properties have been designed very much with family living in mind, as the show villa Admirals Reach demonstrates.
Boasting approximately 4,500 square feet of floor space this commanding, spacious property enjoys a bespoke finish to meet the demands of even the most discerning of buyers. The combined kitchen, breakfast area and family room is at the heart of Admirals Reach, complemented by a separate lounge and dedicated dining room; while the option of a home cinema room provides the ideal setting for family film nights. With each of the five bedrooms benefiting from its own en-suite, Admirals Reach is very much an aspirational yet practical family home.
Design & appearance
Attention to detail was key when designing the villas, with Redrow’s in-house team of architects tasked with using a ‘fresh and new’ contemporary style of architecture to create grand homes with outstanding features. They embraced this challenge and the rugged charm of the natural environment, using glass as the prevailing material on the rear elevation. The result is that all of the key rooms in Admirals Reach, and the other nine villas, look out over Lytham Green to the Ribble Estuary, enjoying unrivalled levels of light and some stunning views.
From the front, the grandeur of Admirals Reach is immediately apparent. The Redrow architects have created an impressive and imposing home with distinctive external design, including dramatic gable front, plus imaginative landscaping and detailed block paving to complement its style.
Quality materials include stock bricks from the Ibstock range, Weber-Monocouche Cream Render, Eternit Cedral Weatherboard and Forticrete Gemini roof tiles in mixed russet and brown.
Focus on family life
Admirals Reach has been dressed as the home of an affluent family who enjoy the finer things in life and each other’s company. The sense of grandeur that awaits is apparent from the moment you step inside the front door to be greeted by the elegant entrance hallway and galleried landing, giving a flavour of the luxury that awaits.
Admirals Reach is very much a home for those who love to entertain – be it family, friends or business associates. There are clear and defined areas for socialising and for quieter, more private moments.
On the upper ground floor, spanning the width of the property, is the combined kitchen, breakfast area and family room. This inviting sociable space opens on to the garden room with extra wide French doors bringing the outside in. It’s a multifunctional room that is designed to be at heart of family living and provides a space where families can gather and spend time together cooking, eating or simply relaxing.
The seamless elegance of the kitchen is created with contemporary units and integrated top of the range appliances.
Also on the upper ground floor, there’s a dining room for more formal entertaining and a lounge that offers somewhere quiet to relax.
Those who arrive by car, park in the garage and enter via the internal doors to the main room on the lower ground floor of Admirals Reach will find a home cinema with kitchenette/ bar area that’s perfect for family film nights. This versatile floor also includes a shower room so the cinema room would alternatively make an ideal gym or could be used as a home office, providing somewhere quiet to work away from the distractions of family life.
Over the upper floors there are five bedrooms, four of which feature walk in wardrobes, and each bedroom benefits from its own en-suite, making it perfect for family living – especially for those families with teenage or adult children still living at home.
Located on the first floor, the master bedroom boasts its own lounge area plus a balcony overlooking the estuary, offering parents a tranquil retreat.
The back garden is laid to lawn – ideal for children – and beyond it is the wide open space of Lytham Green and the estuary.
Admirals Reach is a beautifully finished property designed to appeal to those who demand nothing less than the very best. The layout, internal finish, wall hangings, furniture and soft furnishings of this executive home have all been carefully considered to offer style, convenience and practicality in equal measure.
The Moores kitchen is as practical as it is beautiful, with stylish units finished in Bavaria black gloss and Sapporo Latte gloss and exquisite Corian worktops in arrowroot and platinum.
The kitchen enjoys the convenience of essential appliances such as oven, hob, microwave and fridge freezer, plus items people expect to see in a home of this class including wine cooler and luxury coffee maker.
Every bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and the sumptuous master suite comprises a separate bedroom and lounge area, walk-in wardrobe, luxury en-suite and a balcony.
Bathrooms enjoy Ideal standard International Design Collection suites with quality fixtures and fittings, including towel warmers. They also boast chic ceramics.
Lytham has a prestigious reputation and is home to some excellent schools. Situated in the heart of Lancashire’s glorious coastline, it offers attractive coastal walks, boutique stores, restaurants and several championship golf courses including Royal Lytham and St Annes Golf Club, which hosted the 2012 Open Championship. It is only a short drive to the M55, which links to the M6 and means that Manchester is little over an hour away. Unsurprisingly Lytham was named earlier this year by the Sunday Times as one of the top 101 places to live in Britain and one of the top 10 in the North West. The newspaper assessed towns and cities across the country looking at a wide variety of criteria including school performances, life expectancy, levels of crime, transport links, location of parks and open spaces and community spirit – indeed, many of the factors that matter most to families.
