Mr Clarke thinks :
The clever open plan living area is zoned to create intimate pockets of spaces.
This deceptively spacious and pretty apartment sits on a quiet residential road close to the town centre. The outside is lovely, and inside is even better. New carpets and fresh licks of paint decorate this home, as well as feature fireplaces and pristine fixtures & fittings.
As you enter, you get the feeling of how airy and calm it is in here. The first door leads to the gorgeous and sophisticated living room. The fireplace is the centre piece of the room, which makes a nice change from it being the TV, and you can watch the world go by through the large window.
If you chose to head down the entrance hall first then you’d come across the dining area which has transparency into the kitchen. This flow of space will come in handy when you’re hosting your own Come Dine With Me night. It’s sociable yet relaxed and cool. There’s enough space for a washing machine, and you even have views of your very own lush garden.
Mrs Clarke loves :
Being so close to town and the shops.
The bathroom is through the kitchen. It has a big bath, heated floor and has been sympathetically styled to suit the history of the building. It’s the perfect place to relax and unwind alongside candles and a good book.
The large double bedroom is a serene space. You can pull up the sash windows and listen to the birdsong from the garden each morning. The high ceilings makes it feel very royal in here, and we can imagine happily spending a lazy Sunday here!
Outside you’ll find the private garden with thoughtfully positioned seating areas. You can enjoy morning coffee on the rear patio, bask in the afternoon sun on the lawn and enjoy a glass of something stronger under the pergola in the evening. Even though you’re walking distance to Leamington bars and restaurants, it has a super friendly community spirit here as most of the surrounding buildings are family homes and haven't been converted.
- Three words : Neutral. Cool. Comfortable.
Our favourite part
Everything is immaculate - it feels like a proper homely home already.
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.
