PUBLISHED: 11:49 24 July 2020 | UPDATED: 11:49 24 July 2020
Explore this unique property with the aid of cutting edge technology.
Latham House is an impressive family home, extensively refurbished by the current owners to offer a versatile entertaining space, complete with a bar, heated swimming pool, hot tub, steam room and cinema room. The property includes an outside kitchen, perfect for alfresco dining and bi-folding doors to bring the outdoors in and relish tranquil summer evenings. The property encompasses functional family living space whilst offering state-of-the-art modern convenience, including smart wiring to provide home automation to heating, lighting, music and security.
Latham House is located in Gomersal, surrounded by a backdrop of beautiful West Yorkshire countryside, whilst offering excellent commuter links to the M62 and M1 motorways. Gomersal has seen an upsurge in development, including numerous conversions of fine and historic houses and the construction of many bespoke new build homes.
Why Matterport for Latham House?
In many ways, Latham House presents itself as the perfect candidate for Matterport, which was designed specifically for larger properties. Matterport uses a 3D Camera to scan each room to build a virtual tour which allows an option to create a 3D floorplan and dollhouse. This allows rich visualisation for properties with contemporary layouts, which can prove challenging when based exclusively on images and floorplans alone.
Throughout the virtual tour, Latham House has features highlighted to give in depth detail, such as the triple Velux roof terrace, zoned underfloor heating, twin Siemens ovens, Liebherr wine fridge and dual aspect mullion windows. Such details are not always possible to fully appreciate during formal viewings. Matterport is an opportunity to convey a significant level of information beyond the usual time limitations imposed by physical viewings. Charnock Bates found Matterport to be the closest way to view Latham House without physically attending a viewing in person.

The Benefits of Virtual Tours
The benefits of 3D Virtual Tours for vendors are endless. Matterport can decrease the time spent on the market by up to 31%, whilst 95% of buyers are more likely to enquire about home with 3D virtual tours, according to Matterport.
Virtual tours allow buyers the option to ‘view’ more properties to find the perfect home without the usual time and travel commitments. The advantage for buyers is that it makes it possible to shop around more and expand the search area, allowing more choice for potential buyers, especially those on the fence about relocating. The functionality of Matterport allows prospective buyers to view a property at their leisure, without time limitations. Prospective buyers can even use a virtual reality headset to immerse themselves in the property, feel what it is like to live there and picture themselves within each and every room.
Could this be the Future of Property Viewings?
New technology is revolutionising the way we view properties forever. Although Matterport has been around for several years and is extremely popular in the USA, its use in the UK was recently expedited due to the pandemic. One company reported a 600% jump in Matterport use compared to the year before, according to Property Industry Eye. At the time NAEA and ARLA also recommended using remote viewing, such as Matterport, in place of physical property viewings. Since the property market reopened last month, the use of Matterport has shown no signs of slowing down.
