Mr Clarke thinks :
The outside is perfect for the kids and dog.
The Corner House is a modern four bedroom property with space, style and a perfect position to enjoy a town centre lifestyle. When looking for a home in Leamington there are often lots of things buyers have to consider: We want off-street parking. We need four bedrooms but we don’t want to pay over 1 million. A garden is a must. Period properties are nice but open plan living is more our thing. Leamington is a fabulous place to live but finding the perfect home is tough. Well - we think The Corner House is going to be very appealing to families looking for a home in Leamington, a couple wanting a stylish house within walking distance of their morning coffee or discerning down-sizers who want space for visiting family and a low maintenance garden so they can lock up and leave whilst they spend retirement travelling the World.
Location wise you are in the thick of things. Milverton Primary School and nursery - the favourite educational establishment for local aspirational parents - are within steps of the front door. Kingsley School is a short stroll away, as is Arnold Lodge. You are within minutes of the town centre, close to a cracking pub, down the road from the tennis club and a few doors away from a yoga studio. If it is location, location, location you want then The Corner House delivers. The property has off-street parking with one space directly outside and the other secure parking space behind electric gates via the shared access, as well as a beautiful courtyard garden to relax, entertain and play in. Planning permission was granted for a garage over the secure rear space, it has lapsed but the plans are available for a new buyer to re-apply.
Mrs Clarke loves :
The sun-drenched kitchen.
Internally you will be delighted to find a spacious open plan downstairs, which is flooded with light and oozing style. There is a large sitting room that feels like a boutique hotel, a beautiful kitchen with a central island where everyone naturally congregates, a dining room, a utility room and cloakroom. We aren’t saying it is the largest house in Leamington but we are saying that it is cleverly designed to create a friendly home with plenty of room. Upstairs is a jaw dropping Master bedroom - it very Elle Decoration – with vaulted ceiling, oak floor and ensuite shower room. There is a family bathroom and three further bedrooms, one a good sized double currently used as a kid TV and playroom, with two smaller doubles which would be great either for kids, guests or perhaps one as a study. There is also easy access to a spacious and fully boarded storage loft. It is a lovely oasis in the middle of town to curl up on a wet November evening or lie in on a lazy Sunday morning (if the kids allow!).
The kitchen is the beating heart of The Corner House. It sits in the centre of the open-plan ground floor and life passes through it and comes together in it. There is a lot of design content including the walnut surfaces and tiled floor, the American fridge freezer, double oven, wine cooler, dishwasher and underfloor heating. The family room is connected to the kitchen but there is a formal feel to the space created by the gas fire and seating arrangement. The double doors open out to the courtyard garden creating the in-out lifestyle that we all dream of. There is underfloor heating below the walnut floor to keep toes warm in the winter.
A dining room sits at the other side of the house and is connected to the kitchen making it a great space for family meals as well as working from home.
- Three words : Large. Stylish. Home.

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.
