Dickins House, Leamington Spa

Mon 23 Oct 2017

A development of nine apartments in the centre of Leamington “which accurately reflects the town’s property market” has all sold off plan.

Dickins House, in Kenilworth Street, has been created by local development firm Kigass, and the range of one, two and three-bed apartments sold quickly after the scheme was first announced.

Edward Bromwich, of ehB Residential which has handled the sales and marketing of the development, said the new residents emphasised the state of the property market in Leamington.

He said: “These are apartments which are finished to a really high standard and there is a range of sizes, so they were appealing to potential owners and tenants with different needs – and that is exactly what we have got.

“There is a split of owner occupiers and rental properties. There is a couple who have returned to this country from abroad, there is an academic from the University of Warwick and an executive who have all bought.

“The properties that have been bought by investors have been let to people who are coming to this area – and the country – to work at Jaguar Land Rover.

“That reflects the demand in the town. Leamington has a wide range of properties for sale or rent, there is a great environment, good shopping and leisure, and we have a buoyant economy.

“The recent national publicity about this being the happiest place in England has also done no harm to the image of Leamington.

“We knew because of the standard of the specification and the quality finish by the developers, along with the town centre location, that the properties would sell, but to have completely sold out off plan is very encouraging.

“We regularly have people who sell and move into rented accommodation, just to ensure they are in the best position to pounce when property in a location they like comes on to the market.”

Bromwich added that features such as lockable storage, the alternative energy supplies that the developer included such as electric car charging points and secure parking also helped to achieve a quick sale at Dickins House.

Joanne Wardman-Smith, of Kigass, said: “Clearly we are delighted the apartments have sold so well and with the power and professionalism that ehB brought to the marketing of Dickins House, but mostly we are really pleased with the development and how it has regenerated a key area in the town centre.

“Kenilworth Street is right in the heart of the town close to what is accepted to be an outstanding leisure offer. It was a street level, rough ground car park for many years which was in need of improvement and this development will bring valuable footfall to those businesses.”

"The stress of moving house and renting a property out is enough for even the strongest to endure, however, having bought our house through ehB Warwick and rented out our previous home through them too, I can honestly say things could not have gone any better. The purchase went without a glitch and the whole process took 8 weeks. ehB worked extremely hard to keep all parties well informed and managed everyone's individual needs well. They found a tenant for us within a day, who moved into our house upon completion of our purchase. We can honestly say that without a doubt we would use ehB in the future and would recommend their services to anyone considering buying, selling or renting a home."
