Mr Clarke thinks :
The veg patch is my favourite. It’s proof that you can grown your own even in the small space.
Whether you enjoy hosting dinner parties or prefer a quiet night in, this home provides space for both - open plan living space as well as quiet, private spaces. The decor is sophisticated and in immaculate condition.
The bright main entrance brings you into the kitchen and living room which are nicely separated but still has transparency. You can cook whilst the friends can sit, eat, chat and boogie in the same room. It’s very light and airy with the help of Velux windows, and the patio door can be thrown fully open to let the inside in on a warm day. Your soiree can spill out into the garden.
Mrs Clarke loves :
The bucolic life I can live here.
The tiered garden offers different experiences all year around: the private coffee spot, to the lush veg-patch all the way through to the patio area which is ideal for morning yoga or relaxation with table, chairs, barbecue and shed. You can always head inside to appreciate the underfloor heating with a cuppa when it gets a bit chilly. The kitchen has plenty of storage and a great amount of worktop surface.
The south facing bedroom gives you plenty of natural light in the morning and throughout the day. The smart storage solutions in this room are a big bonus. Next-door you’ll find the fully tiled bathroom with electric shower and underfloor heating. There’s plenty of cupboard space here too so you can store all of your bath salts, towels and toiletries.
- Three words : Cool. Calm. Vibes.
Our favourite part
The home is beautifully designed and decorated to the highest standards, so you can move straight in.
Kenilworth Old Town
Historical town with a Castle, old pubs and beautiful park
There is Kenilworth and then there is Kenilworth Old Town. This isn't us being all "estate agenty" and making up names for places to increase property prices - Kenilworth Old Town is the enclave of gorgeous homes, shops and restaurants (including The Cross) based around the Castle and Abbey Fields. It's the poshest end of this fab town!
Within a hop and a step you can be eating supper at The Virgins & Castle (Kenilworth oldest pub) or The famous Cross (a delight for the taste buds). You can be drinking a pint at The Queen & Castle. There is a newsagent, a bakery, a tea shop, a physio and lots of lovely local peeps to say hello to.
Kenilworth High Street boasts banks galore, numerous coffee houses, bundles of restaurants, funky bars, fantastic schools for kiddly winks of all ages, a Waitrose, Boots and a weekly farmers market that dishes up some delicious local produce. Mr Clarke is particularly fond of the high percentage of pubs all within wobbling distance of each other.
Kenilworth is surrounded by breath-taking countryside and some lovely walks are on hand to help you blow off the cobwebs after work or if you just fancy a long Sunday ramble. And should you like stepping back in time, you could always descend onto Kenilworth Castle, which is lovingly cared for by English Heritage. We particularly like the walk from Kenilworth Castle to the Alpaca Farm “Faerie-Tale Aplacas”. Not to mention the next level park, Abbey Fields.
There’s a super friendly community spirit in Kenilworth too and you’ll always find something in the calendar to enjoy. It could be the annual bonfire and fireworks display that draws in thousands of folk. Or the annual duck race on Boxing Day (no, not real ducks). All in all, it’s a place you’ll feel at home almost overnight.
It’s really well connected, with Birmingham airport just 20 minutes away and should you need to bob along to London, it’s just over an hour from Coventry station. More locally there is Kenilworth railway station on the line between Coventry and Leamington Spa, so commuting to the big smoke will be even easier.
