Million-pound townhouses offer Scandi-style living in Regency theme park

Sun 27 Sep 2020

A Warwickshire developer, inspired by decades of world travel, has blended his love of Scandinavian living with a passion for architecture to create three open plan townhouses just yards from Leamington town centre.

And Gary Kedgley, MD of Warwick-based Space GK, loves them so much he has also built his own angular uber-contemporary villa next door so he can enjoy the balance of stylish, energy efficient living with easy access to the town’s cafes and parks.

The light-filled four storey properties at Victoria Court in Kenilworth Road have been appended, London style, to a former nursing home which Gary recently converted into deluxe apartments and a penthouse.

The homes in the original building are now safely in the hands of the new owners, each of whom was happy to part with a large six figure sum for the privilege of a blend of modern luxury with 200-year-old architectural style and proximity to Leamington’s innumerable coffee shops and eateries.

The townhouses could well become award-winning additions to the town’s aesthetic streetscape, like one of Gary’s previous creations which sold out within four hours of being put on the market. That development, a former NHS critical care unit converted into eight high end apartments, won a coveted award from architectural heritage champions the Leamington Society.

Light and space are key elements of all Gary’s developments – whether new build or conversion, hence his company name, Space GK.

Each of the Victoria Court townhouses offers well over 2,500 sq ft of space, plus a double garage and has a bright 33-foot long living dining kitchen which flows, via full width bi-fold doors, into an easy-to-maintain walled balcony garden.

They all have four bedrooms, some of which can be used as studies, two bathrooms and a large media room, along with cloakroom, utility room and double garage with the facility to add an electric car charging point.

Duravit bathrooms, Hansgrohe taps, Matki shower screens, Miele appliances, Quooker taps, Hulsta wardrobes and high-speed broadband via Virgin media fibre optic cables contribute to the high specification finish. The lower ground and ground floors have wet zone under floor heating.

The properties are likely to appeal to those downsizing from a family home who want plenty of entertaining space and easy access to town, without the need to maintain a large garden.

They may also suit those who, once Covid is under control, travel for work or have an overseas holiday home and are after an impressive lock up and leave base in the UK.

They are available through ehB Residential and Peter Clarke, with prices starting at £985,000.
