Elegant Town Living

Paul Clarke

Sitting proudly on a quiet, tree-lined street in the heart of Royal Leamington Spa you find this elegant Regency town house. Built in 1826, the Grade II listed property is set over five floors and it is bursting with original features and oozing charm. The home has an effortless flow through the large reception rooms, out into the pretty courtyard garden, between intimate formal rooms and peaceful bedrooms. The property is outstanding and the home inside is one to be proud of.

Portland Street is an enviable address in a conservation area of Leamington. You can stroll to Haddie & Trilby for a loaf of sough dough bread or Coffee Architects for a flat white. The shops, cinema, rail station and the famous parks and gardens are on your doorstep. Highly regarded schools are within walking distance, as well as yoga studios, art galleries and music venues, not to forget a lengthy list of great restaurants. Portland Street provides access to the hustle and bustle of town centre living but close the front door and you find yourself in a quiet, private oasis - home.

From the moment you are inside the grand entrance hall you feel your shoulders drop and there is a sense of history that washes over you and a sense of warmth that calms you. On the ground floor you find a large open plan kitchen and dining room. The double doors can be closed to create two spaces or flung open to provide a vast family space to entertain in or spend time together. The original fireplace, sash windows and stylish Lucinda Leech cupboards add an elegant feel to the room. At the rear of the ground floor there is a large utility room/boot room with a cloak room and a door that leads to the pretty courtyard garden (more about that later).

The basement has two large reception rooms - a sitting room and study/bedroom. There are two options we think for this level. 1. Leave exactly as it is; two great reception rooms that can be used as playroom, study, snug, bedroom etc. 2. Create an apartment. There is a staircase to the front so there is a private access and there are French doors at the back to access the garden. You would need to add a bathroom and kitchen and gain relevant planning permission but this could be perfect for granny, boomerang children, a nanny or as a holiday let.

The back garden is a large, peaceful courtyard, which faces east, providing welcome shade on warm evenings. Laid with York Stone style flags, bordered with flower beds and boasting an impressive blossom tree, this is a stunning garden for the whole family.

On the first floor you find the elegant drawing room, flooded with natural light and overlooking the street below. It is a magical room centred around an original fireplace. There is also a double bedroom and a bathroom on this floor.

On the second floor you find two further bedrooms and a bathroom. Each bedroom is large enough for a big bed, storage a desk and more. The windows throughout the house have been refurbished or replaced and all have great town views.

The top floor is a converted attic and is currently used as a guest bedroom. The Velux windows look out across Leamington and there is a peaceful atmosphere. This room could be a great workspace for someone working at home, a budding artist or musician.

There are endless possibilities for this property. It is a wonderful family home as it is. It could be re-modelled to create a unique home for a new family or planning could be sought to split it into smaller parts. Whatever the future for the property there is no doubt that it is a wonderful 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.

Tree lined avenues, great shops and a buzzing social scene. What more could you want?

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 Fable, 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 or Coffee Architects; lunch at Aubrey Allez and then Nana's when he needs to impress Mrs C.

Education options include Warwick School, Warwick Prep, Kings High & 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
