Chapel Gate Cottage is a charming, picturesque property, set back from the road in a lovely setting, amongst other attractive character homes.
The property is approached over a small cottage garden with a path leading to the front door, which immediately opens into the kitchen / dining room. The kitchen area has pine cabinets, a butler sink and space for appliances along one wall and there is a dining area with a fireplace on the other. A door beside the fireplace opens to the staircase which rises to the first floor.
The adjacent sitting room is cosy, with a brick fireplace fitted with a log burner and pretty cottage windows overlooking the front garden.
To the far end of the cottage there is a small lobby, with a stable door leading out to the garden and a second door opening to the modern bathroom which is fitted with a bath, hand-basin and w.c..
On the first floor there are two, interconnecting bedrooms of a good size, with views over the front.
Outside there is a pedestrian path leading from the front to a private rear garden, which is set over two levels and is laid to lawn with shrubs. There is useful open back storage shed, ideal for bicycles and alike and a second small area of garden adjacent to the back door.
Coton is a unique village in this area. The High Street is a no-through-road making it free from through traffic, yet it is hugely convenient, being just a few minutes’ cycle to the edge of the city along a car-free route that runs from the end of The Footpath. It also gives near immediate access to the M11 at either junction 13 (North) or 12 (South).
The village has a small Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ primary school, a handsome traditional pub, modern village hall and large playing fields with active sports clubs. At one edge of the village is Coton Orchard farm shop and garden centre which also has a post office, butcher and cafe. At the other edge is Coton Countryside Nature Reserve. There is excellent access out into the surrounding countryside.
