Mr Clarke thinks :
Whilst the house looks magazine-worthy, it’s very much a warm, comfortable home.
This coach house has been cleverly segued into an uber-chic home, which lets maximum light in, yet still holds all of its charm. Positioned in the heart of town with a parking space, and walking distance to all the well-loved shops, bars and restaurants, this is a delightful place we want to come to every single night. If you’re a discerningly different couple then you’ll love the interiors, location and everything in between.
Through the front door you’re welcomed into an airy hallway where you can hang all your favourite pieces of art. Off of here, you’ll find a bright, happy living room featuring an exposed brick feature wall which everyone loves, and double doors which open into the lush courtyard garden. It’s private, walled and feels like something out of a fairytale book. The astro turf floor makes it easy to maintain, and you have easy access through a gate.
Mrs Clarke loves :
Great location, great interiors, great space. What’s not to love?
Back inside, Karndean flooring adorns the floor and paves the way into the kitchen. This room is not only for cooking but also entertaining. The modern white high shine cabinets, with integrated appliances, and marble look breakfast bar all give this a designer feel. The downstairs toilet is just off of the hallway too. Crisp, white walls and monochrome carpets decorate the sophisticated staircase.
Upstairs you’ll find three bedrooms - the two double bedrooms make it ideal for a visiting friends to stay, or a family who want to be nearby glorious parks and the friendly town centre. The master suite is beautifully bright and has a modern ensuite shower room. The further bedroom could be used a study or hideaway (although Mill Street co-working space is super close by and looks amazing). The main bathroom has been perfectly designed and is a peaceful getaway after a long day. The skylight windows for stargazing are the icing on the cake. This is a one of a kind home where we would like to just relax in all weekend long.
- Three words : Home. With. Soul.

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.
