Enjoy city benefits in a family-friendly setting, with a new home at Whitmore Place
Whitmore Place is our new development of 2-bedroom apartments and 2, 3, and 4-bedroom homes in the popular residential area of Holbrooks, 2.5 miles from the centre of Coventry. With green open spaces within walking distance, a choice of schools nearby, a range of shops and facilities within a couple of miles, and speedy links to the heart of the city, this is a great location to suit a range of buyers.
For everyday shopping the area is well-served by the Arena Shopping Park, 1.3 miles from Whitmore Park. There you’ll find a selection of major high street brands including Tesco Extra, Marks and Spencer, Boots and New Look, plus food outlets. For a full shopping spree or to enjoy an evening of entertainment, it’s just a 10-minute car ride or bus journey into the heart of Coventry and the West Orchard and Lower Precinct Shopping Centres, the indoor market, and a host of cafes, restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
The proximity to Coventry means you’ll be close to a wide range of attractions and activities. The historic city – at one point one of the most powerful in England – is home to Coventry Transport Museum, Coventry Music Museum and Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, all of which make a fun day out for children and adults alike. You could also take in some entertainment at the Belgrade Theatre, or admire the stunning architecture of Coventry Cathedral. Closer to home, Holbrooks Park is right next to the development and provides acres of fields, paths and a playground.
Households with children will appreciate the proximity of schools to the development. Parkgate Primary School and Holbrook Primary School are both just over a mile away, whilst for secondary education President Kennedy School (most recently classed as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted before it was made an academy), is 1.7 miles away. There are two universities in Coventry – Coventry University and the University of Warwick on the southern outskirts. Alongside the construction of Whitmore Place, contributions will also be made to local education, highways, NHS trusts and the local sports club.
The development is ideally situated for commuters. As well as being a short distance from Coventry city centre, Whitmore Place is positioned less than 3 miles from the M6, meaning Birmingham can be reached in just half an hour. The A46 puts Warwick and Royal Leamington Spa less than 40 minutes away, while Leicester is 26 miles up the M69. There are good options for public transport, with a local bus network and a train station just 1.4 miles from Whitmore Place. And for travel further afield, Birmingham International Airport is a handy 11.7 miles away.
