Mr Clarke says :
The downstairs is perfect for the modern family. I’d have the converted garage as my office.
The modern British family want a home with open plan spaces, three bedrooms and a garden. We want to be able to walk into a town and be close to great schools and green spaces. Welcome to Campion Green, Leamington Spa. A home for the modern family.
Campion Green is a proper cul-de-sac, where everyone looks out for each other and there are spontaneous street parties in the summer. Kids ride their bikes and play on the street because there are no cars whizzing through. 5 Campion Green has a big driveway to park the cars on, which is a luxury for town living.
The home is a 1930’s semi detached property that has been remodelled into the perfect home for the modern family. The extension at the back of the kitchen has opened the space up beautifully. Downstairs the owners have altered the layout so you have an open plan feel, but they cleverly added large doors so you can close off the front sitting room and relax without being surrounded by hazardous toys. All the work has been done so you can turn the key and move in.
Through the front door you enter the long hallway. Walk past the downstairs WC and into the large kitchen/family room. There is the much loved pantry to keep tins, boxes and the Nutribullet. You can be cooking in the kitchen, while keeping you eye on the kids doing their homework on the kitchen table and someone is relaxing on the sofa. It’s a big family space and we love it.
The triple-glazed hardwood French doors, made using the 1930’s stained glass from the original doors leads into the garden. The garden is west facing, making it perfect for Sunday afternoon BBQs. The garage has been fully insulated, plastered and alarmed making it ideal for use as an office, studio or man cave.
Mrs Clarke says :
I love the quiet cul-de-sac, yet you can walk into Leamington.
Upstairs there are three great bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master-bedroom is large and light with fitted wardrobes. The windows in this room, and throughout, are wooden replicas of the originals and they were fitted three years ago.
The other two bedrooms fit everything you need from a bedroom and more.
The bathroom is neat and tidy, spacious and bright. There is a bath, shower, sink and WC.
The loft is boarded and currently used as a playroom. It could be converted into a bedroom with the relevant planning permissions and building regs.
As Phil & Kirstie say, It’s all about location, location, location. You can stroll into town and to Newbold Comyn. The schools are highly regarded and there are endless clubs, leisure activities and things to do within minutes of Campion Green.
- Turn the key : the home has been extended and modernised beautifully, making it perfect to move in to now.
- Potential : The loft could possibly be converted.
- Technical bits : Triple glazed French Doors, refurbished windows and underfloor heating.
Our favourite part
The large open plan kitchen is just fantastic. The whole family can be together. Although it is nice to close the doors and sit in the sitting room for some peace and quiet!
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.
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
