Regency splendour in Royal Leamington Spa

Paul Clarke

Waverley House stands proudly on Binswood Avenue - an attractive tree-lined street in the heart of Royal Leamington Spa. The property is a splendid four storey detached Villa dating back to 1838. Inside you find a mix of large open plan spaces, elegant formal rooms, five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a cellar, double-garage and storage. Outside there is a private front garden, large back lawn, patio area and outside storage areas.

Binswood Avenue is one of those addresses that people get very excited about. Discerning property hunters lust over the lovely Regency and Victorian Villas and dream of living within walking distance of the vibrant town centre. Waverley House is a stunning home that turns heads when people walk past. The piano in the window of the drawing room makes you want to head inside and discover the history of the house and the future home...

The property is ideal for those looking for a large detached home in a great location. There are several development opportunities available too - the cellar could be converted, the loft converted into living and sleeping space (see floor-plan 3), and the configuration could also be altered. This is a house with history, charm and style. We are looking forward to seeing the next chapter unfold.

For the details about the rest of the house and why this is a very special home visit our website or call us to arrange a viewing.

You enter the house along a pretty garden path and into a vast, light entrance hall, with two formal reception rooms to each side. At the back of the house there is a large open plan kitchen/dining room, living room and a conservatory leading out to the patio and beautiful landscaped garden. There is a cloakroom, pantry, boot room and double garage with insulated electric door. The large basement is also accessed from the kitchen which holds a laundry, utility room, wine cellar and several other useful store rooms.

The first floor boasts three big bedrooms. The Master has a huge en-suite bathroom and dressing room - the dream! The second bedroom is flooded with natural light from two aspects and is ideal for a guest suite or a playroom. The third double bedroom is next to the family bathroom. On the second floor you find another bedroom and a study. There is a vast loft space, which could become further sleeping spaces - we have drawn up an idea of what it could become with a clever architect, a good builder and all the relevant permissions.

There are many practicalities that modern families will love about the property - the double garage with electric gates provide off street parking, storage and a private entrance. It is rare to find a detached home in the centre of Leamington, let alone one with a double garage. There is clever storage throughout the home, which allows everything to be kept neat and tidy. The boot room is idea for all kinds of boots; football, wellington, ski. The pantry deserves a mention too - once you have one, you’ll never know how you managed without one!

As well as being incredibly large and practical, Waverley House is beautiful and oozes period charm. Built in 1860 the property has retained many original features. The symmetrical, stucco facade is pleasing on the eye. The fireplaces and the cornicing, the windows and the flooring all create a gentle sense of the past.

We aspired to own one of these houses that have been around for ever and will be around after we leave – it gives us a sense of owning a place that’s been home for many families and seen many stories, explained the current owner.

Summary

  • Style : Regency charm with modern vibes.
  • Past : A listed Regency Villa built in 1838
  • Future : Potential to develop further by converting the cellar, extending into the loft and reconfiguring the layout.
  • Our favourite part This is a house with history and style in the heart of Royal Leamington Spa.

Local Life in Leamington

Royal Leamington Spa, or Leam as we Leamingtonians like to call our beloved town, has the lot... tree lined avenues, hip and happening social scene, pretty parks, great schools and great coffee shops. Leam has it all.

Leamington’s streets of Regency town houses, which equal those of Cheltenham’s or Brighton’s in my humble opinion, are full of gorgeous homes and friendly people. There is a grand sense down every street.

Well connected? Leamington is super well connected. The M40 nips past to Birmingham, Oxford and London; Stratford-upon-Avon and Coventry are a 20-min drive away; Birmingham 40 mins.

The town has emerged as one of the Midland’s most highly regarded places to live for families who love the schools and activities, as well as young singles and couple who love the bar, restaurant and cultural scene.

If you like shopping, you will love the town centre’s mixed independent shops and High Street chains.

Tree lined avenues, great shops and a buzzing social scene. What more could you want?

Mrs Clarke loves the boutique feel of the town centre, with its mix of hipster coffee shops like The Larder and the gorgeous shops like Fable, Collective and Farrow & Ball. The High Street has all the big names and then there is the M&S food hall.

Mr Clarke has a few favourites of his own. His personal tailor at Clements & Church, a pint at The Pug; breakfast at Haddie & Trilbie or Coffee Architects; lunch at Nana's when he needs to impress Mrs C.

Education options include Warwick School, Warwick Prep, Kings High & Kingsley School For Girls which are good independent schooling options, and excellent state primary (St. Peter's) close by. Secondary schools (Myton, Trinity, North. Leam). Leamington College and Warwick University

  • Closest village/town: Lots of lovely countryside on your doorstep
  • Post Office: 1
  • Stores: Lots of great independent shops and great High Street names
  • Supermarket: All of them!
  • Pubs: The Fat Pug and The Star & Garter are our favourites
  • Walks: Along the river Leam and through the leafy parks
