John Ansell

John Ansell General Manager

How long have you worked at Boothroyd:
2 and a half years

What do you like most about Kenilworth:
I like the sense of community and increasingly its diversity. To put it into words, you really notice it when it snows and the whole of Kenilworth heads for Abbey Fields. You sense a real togetherness in the town on those odd days.

What is your favourite period of property:
My favourite period of properties has to be The Arts and Craft era which started in the 1880’s. Being a keen gardener this was an era when gardens became almost extensions of the house with “outside rooms” created with hedging.

What is your favourite property you have ever dealt with:
My favourite property has to have been a Victorian House sold in the grounds of St Johns Church in Bromsgrove. The most memorable thing were the bricks. You could see children’s hand prints from when the moulds were patted before going into the kiln. The house was sold to the ‘Richard and Judy’ show and formed part of their daytime show as it was refurbished and eventually given away, along with its contents in a competition.

Where is your favourite place for a day out in Warwickshire:
That’s a difficult one. Having dedicated my weekends to my son’s football for the last 10 years there hasn’t been much time for a day out. However, I recently visited Charlecote Park and absolutely loved it. On an autumnal day, it was simply stunning…and getting away from everything commercial, heaven.
