A spacious detached family home set in the heartof this rural village on an exclusive cul-de-sac development, benefiting from mature surrounding
gardens and enjoying a private aspect.
The accommodation provides a good degree of flexibility and offers further potential (subject to planning). The house enjoys a light feel throughout and all rooms are of good proportion.
A large gravel driveway to the front provides ample parking leading to the double garage. A covered entrance porch leads in to the hallway, with wood laminate flooring and a staircase to the first floor with storage beneath. Cloakroom with basin and w/c.
The kitchen has been remodelled and is now open plan incorporating a dining area. Re-fitted several years ago with a wide range of soft cream shaker style wall and base units,
complemented by dark granite effect worktops. Integrated dishwasher, larder fridge, eye-level double oven and large induction hob with matching splashback and extractor hood.
Additionally, the breakfast bar provides an area for casual dining.
Oak flooring flows through to the dining area where patio doors open out to the rear garden. A useful utility room is fitted with matching units and worktops, a sink and plumbing for washing machine and dryer, a door provides access to the side garden.
The sitting room enjoys a light feel with dual aspect; a feature bay
window to the front and patio doors to the rear. The spacious feel is further enhanced by the vaulted ceiling, with the focal point of the room being the impressive fireplace housing an integrated multi-fuel fire. Two further reception rooms provide flexibility, currently utilised as a formal dining room and a home office/family room. Completing the ground floor is a conservatory, with tiled floor and radiator.
To the first floor, galleried landing with loft access. The master bedroom suite provides a walk-in wardrobe and recently refitted en-suite bathroom of contemporary design with separate shower.
The bedroom also benefits from a range of fitted wardrobes and storage.
There are three further double bedrooms, two of which benefit from
built-in wardrobes. The generous family bathroom provides a three piece white suite and separate shower.
The mature gardens are an impressive feature of the property surrounding on all sides. The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn bound by mature planting with a paved patio running the length of the house. Other features include a timber garden room, built-in BBQ and wildlife pond creating the perfect environment in which to relax or entertain.
To the side lies a vegetable garden and to the front the lawned garden is interspersed with a variety of fruit trees.
Coates — a multi-dimensional village
Many people who live in Coates really do not want to leave, so what makes it so special? The answer is its sense of belonging. Behind its quiet exterior hides a thriving community in which people know, and tend to look out for, each other.
At its heart is the Village Club — a volunteer-run organisation in the Village Hall is open for business every Friday and Saturday night with family opening once a month and other regular events. On a warm summer's evening meanwhile, nothing beats a walk down to the Tunnel House for cheesy chips and a pint.
Coates also has a cricket pitch and villagers have been know to host impromptu games of rounders, always followed by a barbecue. The Church choir gathers several times per year, and Easter egg hunts and Christmas carols round the village are solid fixtures. Regular emails and newsletters keep locals updated on everything that is going on.
This spirit pervades everything about Coates, striking an ideal balance between activity and calm. Whether someone is looking for peace and quiet, needs somewhere safe and fun to bring up a family, or wants to get involved more deeply in village activities, Coates is open and friendly.
Coates may not the most accessible of villages, nor does it have the 'chocolate box' factor of the North Cotswolds, but these factors act in its favour as it has retained a sense of purpose. In many ways, it still captures the spark of community that so often appears to be lost.
