An Earl’s life in Laleham, Middlesex

28th August 2008 Print
An Earl’s life in Laleham, Middlesex Laleham Abbey, formerly Laleham House, was built for the second Earl of Lucan in 1805 by architect to the Prince Regent, J B Papworth. This Grade II* listed building accommodates an apartment on the market to buy or rent with Townends in Staines, Middlesex.

Laleham Abbey is set in Laleham Park which was 70 acres of abbey grounds given for public use when the Lucan family left. It still holds its imposing neo-classical style with a Greek Doric porch, and originally had inside marble floors and pillars, a beautiful semi-circular staircase and a cupola. It was altered, again by Papworth, in the 1820s and 1830s, and some time after the 5th Earl sold the house in 1928, it was used by the nuns of the community of St Peter.

In 1981 it was sold off as many different properties, having been restored and converted by a large development company.

9 Laleham Abbey, Laleham Park, Middlesex is on the market for £279,500 to buy and £1,350pcm to rent. Set in a gated development this apartment offers a double bedroom, spacious lounge with fireplace, kitchen with marble worktops, bathroom with double shower, Jacuzzi, stunning grounds and residents parking. Further details are available through Townends in Staines -

The property is well situated for travel with three mainline stations nearby, including Staines, which offers a direct line into London Waterloo in just over half an hour. The M3 is close by providing easy access to the M25 and its adjoining motorways. It is also very close to the River Thames and Laleham golf club giving the owners options for leisure activities.

In 1970 the village of Laleham was designated as a conservation area in order to protect its heritage.
