The Leamington Lifestyle is a three bedroom home like no other, designed to deliver superlative standards to each and every member of the family. Either of the two supplementary double bedrooms would match the quality of the master bedroom in any other home, with an en-suite shower room as standard. And when it comes to the master bedroom in the Leamington Lifestyle, the bar is raised to a whole new level, with a suite of rooms across the front of the property that includes a walk-in wardrobe and an impressive en-suite that has room for both bath and shower and still has space to spare.
This outstanding sense of space continues downstairs with a large lounge to the front of the house, and a full width family / kitchen / dining room across the back, which features a wall of glass where the double patio doors open to the garden.
Add in a designer fitted kitchen, complete with top of the range appliances, downstairs cloaks and a separate utility and you have a high class home that is full of surprises.
The Leamington Lifestyle will exceed your expectation of what a three bedroom home can be, delivering a space and style that are unsurpassed.
