This distinctive family home beckons you to explore its history, charm, and breathtaking features. Set back from the road, behind high walls and gates the home also offers complete privacy.
Dating back to the 19th Century, this house began its journey as a coach house for
one of the Regency villas on Kenilworth Road. It is the oldest house in Cloister Crofts, along with the two adjoining Coachmen’s Cottages, bearing witness to centuries of history and character. (See the Ordnance Survey map from 1905 before Cloister Crofts became a residential road.)
Entering the house through the porch, you'll find yourself in a grand, open-aspect family and dining room that is steeped in history and is the heart of the home. This was once the domain of horse-drawn carriages, and the echoes of bygone eras still linger in its stunning architecture, such as the sweeping arches where the horses were once stabled and a delightful port hole window. Another beautiful design feature is the wrought iron spiral staircase, an elegant artefact of the 1970s conversion, which graces the space once occupied by a ladder to the hayloft.
Leading into a generously sized kitchen, with the repurposed Regency flagstones a nod to the original building, and large windows that fill the room with light, this space is a blend of old-world charm and modern comfort. An exposed brick wall pays homage to the property's character.
The large lounge which was once the tack room with traditional high ceilings and stunning arched windows, is the perfect setting for formal entertaining and cherished family gatherings. An open fire with a feature carved oak mantlepiece adds to the room's timeless charm, while double doors open onto the garden’s attractive bricked semi-circular steps and patio that promises peaceful moments.
Downstairs the home also boasts a laundry room, a convenient downstairs WC, and a versatile study/snug/playroom. This room, with its double doors opening onto a tranquil area of the front garden, offers a perfect sanctuary for work or relaxation.
Upstairs, the original hayloft is now four spacious double bedrooms, including an immensely grand master suite, offering respite and harmony. The newly refitted ensuite bathroom and Jack & Jill doors, ensures that modern accessibility seamlessly intertwines with timeless elegance. The main bedroom is a masterclass in comfort and luxury, featuring large windows and a walk-through dressing area that leads to the bathroom.
Outside, the original gated driveway, flanked by historical pillars, accommodates 3-4 cars, with additional parking out front. The private, gated cobbled front yard is not just a sight to behold but also a practical space, and a garage stands tall, offering ample room for storage and further parking.
The walled garden, wrapping around three sides of the home, is an ideal place for relaxation, entertaining, or simply basking in the beauty of nature. It offers various spots for seating, perfect for capturing those precious sunlit moments, while housing mature shrubs along with magnolia, fig and pear trees.

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’s little sister Wilhelmina and 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.
