We are delighted to offer for sale 8 luxury properties at this iconic Lathom development. Latham Hall is historically one of the most important properties in the North of England. Latham House was originally a medieval palace fortress that was destroyed in the English civil war. In 1724 Lathom Park became the property of Thomas Bootle of Melling who commissioned the fashionable Italian architect, Giacomo Leoni to rebuild Lathom House in the neo-classical style and one of the finest Palladian houses in the county. Built over 15 years from 1725-40, its deer park was designed by renowned landscape gardener Humphry Repton and boasted The Lines which, at two-and-a-half miles long, were the grandest 17th-century tree-lined avenues in England. Unfortunately like so many great country homes, Lathom Hall was neglected after the great war and fell into disrepair and after a brief period as a boys school was largely demolished in 1925. Only the West Wing of Lathom house and some associated building remain but these have been carefully restored to their former glory. Occupied by various lords and Earls throughout generations, the house has a rich and fascinating history that has been recognised by English Heritage in granting the West Wing of the Original Hall a Grade II listed status. A local privately owned developer Frank Phillips Builders is currently using all of their 45 years experience on handling a diverse range of construction projects including residential, retail, elderly care, industrial, commercial, health, education, equestrian, and religious facilities to bring this amazing building back to life.
 
This is an interesting an characterful home with lots of design detail that will satisfy even the most discerning of home buyers. There are two property types available including a two bedroom ground floor apartment with their own front door and a stylish and spacious, all ground floor floorplan. This will be ideal if you are looking for a low maintenance home with easy to maintain gardens but don’t want to compromise on size. The other property type is a cleverly designed three bedroom duplex with lift access. Surrounded by beautiful, rural greenbelt countryside, the exclusive estate is set in approximately 3.5 acres of well maintained grounds including a stunning Italianate semi private courtyard. The estate is managed by the residents and externally there is a separate garage block providing private parking and garaging. There is also more than adequate visitor parking. The apartments on offer at The West Wing are not standard properties. Not only do they enjoy a magnificent setting but they offer a unique blend of character and convenience in one of the prettiest parts of Lancashire close to Ormskirk town and Parbold village. Work is nearing completion and this is a rare chance for people to be part of this remarkable story - "the transformation of one of Lancashire’s historic gems”.
