Mr Clarke says :
A great investment. Or a great place to call home. And there’s nothing like having a 16th century pub just around the corner.
18 Kenilworth Hall a superb apartment on the first floor of a delightful building just off the historic high street in Kenilworth. Inside you’ll discover two good sized double bedrooms, one with the convenience of an en-suite, a contemporary bathroom and a light filled living room with adjoining kitchen. The apartment has been tastefully decorated and instantly feels like home.
The first thing that strikes you about 18 Kenilworth Hall is its location. Head down the old high street, literally around one corner, and you have Loch Fyne, a Post Office, a patisserie, The Cross (a Michelin star restaurant) and not forgetting the oldest pub in Kenilworth, the Virgins and Castle pub, est. 1563. And if you’re an artisan bread lover, Crustum bakes a mouth watering Monkey Bread. Seriously, it’s divine. So 18 Kenilworth Hall gets a very big tick in the foodie box too.
Park the car in your allotted space and you’ll instantly notice the grounds in which the apartments reside, have been very well maintained. A recent decoration of all exterior windows adds an extra layer of appeal. Head up the stairs, through the outside door and you have a choice of the stairs, or if you’re laden with produce, just hop in the lift and ascend to the first floor. Step inside and the apartment is bright and inviting thanks to recent professional redecoration encompassing every room.
Just off the hallway is the main bathroom which has a clever trick to make it feel twice as big – a wall sized mirror. And as it’s heated, you can still admire yourself even after a shower. The bath has an electric shower over, a smart WC and laminate wood floor.
Mrs Clarke says :
A lovely space to call home with a glorious park on your doorstep. Heavenly for impromptu picnics.
The lovely living room is the heart of the home with a generous amount of space to unleash your hidden interior designer. Two large windows let light pour in and create a warm and welcoming ambience right throughout the day. But they also provide an elevated view across Kenilworth with glimpses of Abbey Fields Park. It’s a wonderfully social place with the kitchen just off to one corner, making it perfect for chatting with friends as you cook up a tasty treat. All the kitchen cupboards have been recently painted white which perfectly sets off the white subway tiles and wood style worktop. And you’ll be happy to hear there’s a floor to ceiling cupboard that easily gobbles up all household sundries such as the hoover etc.
Bedroom 1 has an en-suite attached with its very own shower. Perfect for visiting guests, or for sharing tenants who would prefer their own space. Bedroom 2 is slightly larger and both comfortably fits a double bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers. Both windows are framed by the delightful Mews just behind the apartment block.
And who needs a garden when the picturesque Abbey Fields Park is right on your doorstep. Just a quick skip across the road and you have over 68 acres of beautiful park to explore. Not to mention a delightful swimming pool, public tennis courts and highly frequented play area for the little ones. Or playful adults, should the mood take you.
- Style : A spacious apartment, decorated so you can just move in.
- Location : An enviable part of Kenilworth.
- Four words : Where do I sign?
Our favourite part
Mrs Clarke loves the bathroom’s heated mirror. Mr Clarke loves the lift.
Trendy cocktail bars and Waitrose
Being a short walk away from the train station linking Kenilworth with Coventry, Leamington and then the wider rail network. You are also only only a short walk away from Waitrose, The Kenilworth cocktail lounge, The Almanack, Indian Edge and Talisman Square.
With a further hop and step… You can be eating supper at Loch Fyne or the Michelin starred The Cross. You can be drinking a pint at The Queen & Castle or The Virgins. There is a newsagent, a bakery, a tea shop, a physio and lots of lovely local peeps to say hello to.
Kenilworth High Street boasts banks galore, numerous coffee houses, bundles of restaurants, funky bars, fantastic schools for kiddly winks of all ages, a Waitrose, Boots and a weekly farmers market that dishes up some delicious local produce. Mr Clarke is particularly fond of the high percentage of pubs all within wobbling distance of each other.
Kenilworth is surrounded by breath-taking countryside and some lovely walks are on hand to help you blow off the cobwebs after work or if you just fancy a long Sunday ramble. And should you like stepping back in time, you could always descend onto Kenilworth Castle, which is lovingly cared for by English Heritage.
