Vendors' thoughts: "We have loved living in Coates. 5 School row has been the perfect family home to raise our three children. The house offers collective family spaces as well as quiet corners. The kitchen and garden have been a focal point of our lives, from hosting family christmases to barbecues on the deck! It really caters for every occasion. During our time here we have enjoyed country walks to the canal and social events at the village hall. There is a wonderful community spirit and we know that any prospective buyer will be made to feel most welcome,"
