Mr Clarke thinks :
Throwing those doors open and chilling in the courtyard makes for a great evening.
This stunning two bedroom, garden apartment exudes luxury and space. The mix of modern interiors and restored original features create a wonderful home in the heart of Leamington Spa, close to all of the gems, and boasting one of the finest addresses in the area.
Clarendon Square is a Regency style building that has been converted into sumptuously restored apartments. Everything is prim and proper. You’ll notice the green in front of the home which is perfect for summer picnics. Step down the private entrance and head inside the apartment. Here you are greeted with a sense of light from the generous volume of each room.
Head through the first door on the left and enter the contemporary, gloss kitchen. Next door is the high spec bathroom which has recently been refurbished.
Mrs Clarke loves :
All of my favourite bars and cafes are just a short stroll away.
Across the hallway you’ll find an incredible open plan living room where you can entertain friends or relax and throw the French doors open on a Summers afternoon. From here you can step into the second bedroom which could be utilised as a study, and the shower room. The neutral decor is relaxing and compliments the brightness of the natural light. This would be a lovely guest room for visitors or great for a couple to house share.
Located at the front of the home is the main bedroom whose sash windows let in lots of light. There’s plenty of storage space in here. The recently refitted bathroom has a waterfall shower over bath and all - it’s a very relaxing space to be in.
These apartments are popular with young professionals, downsizers and investors. If you are looking for a discerningly different home in the midst of it all, then this is the sanctuary for you.
- Three words : Location. Space. Ambience.

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.
