Mr Clarke thinks :
This gorgeously laid out home is somewhere where everyone can thrive.
A large, bright three storey house in the heart of Leamington boasting beautiful original features, whilst creating an ideal canvas forwellwhatever 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.
Mrs Clarke loves :
The mix of modern interiors and period features.
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 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). 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. Theres even a dressing table area, lots of storage and space for all of your clothes. Theres an impressive ensuite with both (yes both!) a walk-in shower and separate bath tub. Its 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, childrens rooms or maybe a study and dressing room. The views of the St Pauls Church of England are greatly appreciated no matter the weather. The large windows allow you to enjoy the beautiful Warwickshire sunrises and sunsets. Stunning.
- Three words : Character. Charm. Comfort.
Our favourite part
The warm original features give a nod to the building’s historical past.
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 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 when they reopen; lunch at Nana's when he needs to impress Mrs C.
For a bit of fresh air you have lots of options; Jepson Gardens is wonderful and the Aviary coffee shop is the icing on the cake. Art in the Park happens each year and is a great family day out filled with curiosities. Victoria Park and Newbold Comyn are other spots you should go for a picnic.
Education options include Arnold Lodge & 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 are also here.
Tree lined avenues, great shops and a buzzing social scene. What more could you want?
