Lancashire Properties - Warton Hall, Lodge Lane, Lytham
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 building’s history.
