Mr Clarke thinks :
This is a great location and is a large house.
This handsome four storey town house sits proudly in the centre of Warwick and oozes style and space. There are three bedrooms, a vast living room, open-plan kitchen, converted basement, courtyard garden and a private parking space. It is a fantastic home in a great town location.
Being within walking distance of the boutiques and bars of Warwick is a big attraction for many of us - everything is on your doorstep. If you do need to drive the car then having a private space is a big bonus. Although you are in the middle of town, the house is calm and quiet, especially when sat in the sunny courtyard garden on a summer evening.
You enter the house into a wide, light entrance hall where you can hang your coat, dump the shopping and slip off your shoes. To the right you come into the large open-plan kitchen. This is a great sociable space where friends can sit together whilst you cook up dinner. Light floods the room from front windows and the rear French doors, which leads to the garden.
Down the stairs in the kitchen you find a big basement that has been expertly converted into a large study and a living room. This floor of the home could make a great cinema room, playroom, office or a guest bedroom. There is also a cloakroom and storage on the ground floors.

The period features and the space
On the first floor you find a stunning living room, newly fitted bathroom and a bedroom. The living room is our highlight of the house and everyone will gravitate to the space when they come over. The two huge sash windows frame the two view but the shutters can be closed and a cosy atmosphere created for evenings in front of the TV.
The top floor feels like a sanctuary, far from the hustle of busy life. The exposed beams and original windows provide a sense of history and the modern style juxtaposes stylishly to make the Master bedroom feel like a boutique hotel suite. There is a large en-suite shower room and lots of space for a dressing area and clothes storage. The second bedroom looks out to the back of the house and is particularly quiet for even the lightest of sleepers.
- Style : Handsome townhouse with bags of charm
- Highlights : The huge living room. Huge kitchen. Huge Master bedroom.
- Three Words : Large. Town. House
Our favourite part
The living room is stunning. Perfect for movie night.
The boutiques and great pubs prove Warwick is more than historic.
Historic Warwick is not just about the Castle and olde world charm. Warwick has a buzzing town centre, great cafes, pubs, restaurants and shops. There is countryside on your doorstep as well as Leamington down the road and amazing transport links.
When you snap up your new home your first port of call should be the utterly fabulous Hatton & Harding where the even more utterly fabulous team will style and kit out your pad. This beautiful homewares shop is so luxurious that you just want to lay on the floor and soak up every last drop of the style that is dripping from each shelf.
On the way home, loaded with scented candles, rugs and pretty little things you will be in need of a drink and a bite to eat. Dough & Brew is where we would stop. This trendy pizza place was conceived from the street food scene and now has a space without wheels in the heart of the town. We love the stripped back interior, cool staff and friendly vibe. Mr C is partial to a pint of local Church Farm IPA and the pizza with Mac n Cheese on! You heard right - Mac n Cheese pizza. mmmm.
There are so many other little stylish treats around town that you will enjoy discovering. Mrs Clarke loves the guys at Nash & White hairdressers, she can often be found drinking prosecco at The Rose & Crown, meeting the girls for coffee at Thirteen Bakers or practicing her yoga Bikram Warwickshire.
So Warwick has history, boutique shops, trendy restaurants and a posh hairdresser but what about the nitty gritty? Schools, transport and work? "Boring!" I hear you cry, but we must provide some serious stuff on these pages.
Schools - blinkin' brilliant. Warwick Prep is the friendliest school we have ever been too. The Headmistress is an old school, no nonsense lady with a charm that kids and parents can't get enough of. It also churns out cracking students with a mind full of knowledge and a thirst for life. Kings High, Warwick, Myton and lots of great primary schools.
You are probably better connected than anywhere in the UK. Birmingham International Airport is 30 mins away, Warwick station can whizz you into London or Birmingham and the M40 is close by.
Employment is buzzing with JLR, Warwick University, the games industry in Leamington and lots of start-ups and big corporations.
"Shopping, cafes, bars, restaurants and a lovely vibe. Oh, and a very big castle."
