Mr Clarke thinks :
This is a great home in the heart of Leamington.
A large, bright three storey house in the heart of Leamington boasting beautiful original features, whilst creating an ideal canvas for…well…whatever your taste. There is an easy flow throughout the downstairs - from sitting room to kitchen to dining room and out to the courtyard garden. On the first floor there are versatile pockets of space for reading, relaxing and entertaining. On the second floor you find a further two peaceful bedrooms and a stylish bathroom. This home is a surprising delight.
Campion Terrace is the perfect Leamington street - quiet, tree lined, a cracking local pub, a short stroll into town and an even shorter walk with the dog to Newbold Comyn, plus there are no parking restrictions (shhh!). The houses on the street make you want to peek inside and see how the other half live.
Come on in, kick off your shoes in the entrance hall, hang your coat in the cloak room and have a look around. The first room you arrive in is the the front living room - it’s a room full of warm energy which makes this the perfect welcome. This could be a great study space or a formal sitting room, or maybe a playroom if there are children at home. We love the period touches like the picture rails and deep skirting boards. The kitchen is a clever use of functionality and added space: generous counter surfaces; plenty of storage and room for the modern home cook to knock up a week-night culinary masterpiece. Carry on through into the dining room and the garden beyond. Think summer morning; with the bi-folding doors swung open; sipping on a freshly brewed coffee - your own piece of tranquility. You can then enjoy your breakfast on the patio (where you can keep all those plants we know you’ve been collecting).
Mrs Clarke loves :
The large bright spacious rooms.
On the first floor you find one of the highlights of the home - a stunning sitting room, which is flooded with natural light and full of character. You can put on some music, grab a magazine and just chill. Across the landing is the master bedroom which has great personality. There’s even a dressing table area, lots of storage and space for all of your clothes. There’s an impressive ensuite with both (yes both!) a walk-in shower and separate bath tub. It’s clean, neat and a great place to refresh and revitalise.
The second floor has two large bedrooms, both filled with space. These would be great guest bedrooms, children’s rooms or maybe a study and dressing room. The views of the St Paul’s Church of England are greatly appreciated no matter the weather. The large windows allow you to enjoy the beautiful Warwickshire sunrises and sunsets. Stunning.
- Style : A modern home with Victorian touches.
- Highlights : Location. Garden. 3/4 bedrooms. Basement with potential for development.
- Three Words : Large. Stylish. Home.
Our favourite part
The gentle atmosphere in the living room - you are far from the hustle and bustle of town living.
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
