Mr Clarke thinks :
Being so close to town, shops and schools. Tick. Tick. Tick.
Parklands is a splendid 60s home on a tree-lined Avenue and offers lots of space inside and out. Whether you are downsizing or looking for a family home with space in peaceful surroundings, Parklands can offer all of this.
The lounge leads to an airy dining room which opens up into the conservatory through double doors. This space is enhanced by, bespoke, Sanderson’s blinds to roof and windows which offer excellent insulation for year round use of the area. It’s a great spot for watching wildlife visitors and the changing seasons and is used daily by the present owner.
You’ll notice this home has been lovingly remodelled to make it a super, sociable layout, as well as creating rooms of different sizes for different uses. One example is the snug off of the conservatory which could be used as an extra bedroom or perfect working from home spot. There is also a downstairs toilet.
The kitchen is perfectly formed and has all the cupboard space, with appliances and work surfaces required to prepare suppers ,entertain family and catch up with friends.
Mrs Clarke loves :
Breakfast in the conservatory…whatever the weather.
Upstairs, the Master bedroom has a lovely view of fields ,lawn and trees. The seating area at the bottom of the garden can also be seen.
A walk-in wardrobe with lots of storage is an added extra which makes this room complete.
There are 2 further bedrooms which also look out onto great views.
The stylish bathroom has a bathroom suite with shower and matching faux glass Amtico flooring, with a large linen cupboard. It is a serene spot to unwind.
Outside, there is a recently built garage with up and over door to front with side access door. The garage has lighting and sockets installed.
There are many added extras to the property, which have been added over the years by the present owners, for example :burglar alarm which is on a yearly service contract.
- Three words : Spacious. Village. Home.
Our favourite part
Everything is comfortable - it feels like a proper homely 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.
