Georgian Houses For Sale
The Georgian influence in Leamington Spa dates back to the early 19th century when Leamington was developed from the village of Leamington Priors. Expansion was focused north of the River Leam, and during this period Georgian and Regency (late-phase Georgian) architecture was the current architectural style.
This led to the new developments, including the centre of Leamington Spa, having a strong Georgian influence. Some areas of Leamington Spa are particularly well known for having Georgian houses and apartments.
Georgian House in Leamington Spa
Clarendon Square is quintessential Regency architecture – if you are looking for an example to sum up the Regency style, you need look no further than the stylish black front doors and the columns framing them here. Properties such as the apartments on Clarendon Square benefit from an extra injection of charm, as a result of the preservation of character features such as stained glass and a gorgeous fireplace in the centre of the living room. See for yourself how striking these features are in one of our recently sold properties.
Georgian Houses in Lansdowne Crescent
One of Leamington Spa’s iconic sights is Lansdowne Crescent. Designed by William Thomas (who has a plaque dedicated to him outside the crescent!) and built between 1835 and approximately 1866, the crescent was originally built as 24 four and five storey houses, however many were later refurbished into flats in the twentieth century to be more suitable for modern family sizes.
The crescent is an example of neoclassical architecture, the next ‘phase’ of Georgian architecture, which brought a lighter and more elegant feel to classic Georgian houses. These apartments are perfect for those looking for a piece of history that is still suited to modern living.
Georgian properties are always immensely popular, not only due to their beauty but also on account of being part of local history. They tend to get snatched up fast, so to keep an eye out for any Georgian houses for sale, please make sure to regularly check our website for houses for sale in Leamington Spa.

Victorian architecture can be found in many North Leamington properties – not only is this property on a sought-after road in North Leamington, it also has no onward chain.

Many of the Victorian properties also make great family homes due to their size and convenient location for school catchment areas, with 3 bed houses such as this one as a great example.
