Estate agent thrilled by Sunday Times’ adulation of Leamington

Wed 16 Jan 2019

Leamington is yet again being named as pretty much the coolest (and hottest) place to live – with the latest plaudits coming courtesy of the Sunday Times.

And the praise has, unsurprisingly, been lapped up by one of the town’s most prolific estate agents – ehB Residential.

A full page article in this weekend’s Sunday Times, describing the town as ‘happy, historic and full of beans’, cites the number and calibre of independent coffee shops, the quality of the schools and the allure of the architecture as some of the reasons that those not already living in the royal spa town should consider relocating!

The journalist describes the ‘grand boulevards and whitewashed Regency elegance’ in a town which has more cafes per capita than anywhere he has ever experienced.

He says the 1,500 creative businesses to which Leamington is home is partly behind its hipster feel and burgeoning bistro scene. And on a practical level its proximity to London, Oxford and Birmingham by train and the M40 makes it an ideal commuter hub.

The piece follows TV adulation of Leamington in the summer by everyone’s favourite property pundits Phil Spencer and Kirstie Allsopp. The pair explained that Leamington’s popularity had sparked a 9.5% house price increase over the preceding year – with average prices £94,000 above the national average. In that edition of Location, Location, Location a 1930s house on sale through ehB Residential won the hearts of the featured home hunters.

ehB Residential, which, alongside one other company, sold more properties, according to Rightmove than any other agency in Leamington postcodes CV31 and CV32 in 2018, is delighted, but not surprised – that the Sunday Times has waxed lyrical about the town.

MD Edward Bromwich, whose firm is housed in one of the town’s fine Regency edifices, explained: “Of course, we’ve loved Leamington for many, many years – but it’s great that the Sunday Times has recognised its charms.

“After one of our houses was featured in Location, Location, Location we saw a rise in interest in properties in the town – and doubtless the same will happen now. There’s nothing like a bit of national recognition to either encourage people to move within the town they love or attract new people – hipsters or not.”

Over the years ehB Residential has sold numerous Regency houses and apartments, as well as properties from other eras and some unusual new builds.

Current homes which could whet the appetites of those who fancy some of the hipster style action described in the Sunday Times include an Arts and Crafts inspired detached house in treelined Cloister Crofts with a £1.1 million price tag, a large 1970s detached in what agents would describe as an ‘established’ residential area for £685,000 or a modern Regency style four bedroom terrace in Chapel Street in the heart of town for £425,000.

"Chris and the team at eHB have provided my wife and I with an amazing service. Given we are the other side of the world in Sydney, selling a house in the UK can be challenging/daunting. Chris made sure that the whole process was incredibly smooth. eHB provided us with sound advice, have been very efficient and quick to follow up any queries. We have also used eHB to rent the property for the last 7 years and it's been a great experience. The vetting and qualification process for both tenants and buyers has been sound. We have had amazing tenants and we had a great long list of potential buyers that were well qualified. Chris and the team got the house off the market in record time, for a great price. I would highly recommend eHB for both sale and rental. Thanks for your great efforts guys, it's been a pleasure working with you. Cheers."
