The Street, Chappel, Colchester, CO6


5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

Rainbow Cottage is a tale of two halves; once two separate cottages, ‘Holmleigh’ and ‘Rainbow Cottage’ were cleverly opened up to create a family home with plenty of living space, which retains it's period charm. However, the property remains on two titles and has two separate boilers to heat the home. Therefore, with minimal work required the house could be quite easily returned back to the former two dwellings which would be an attractive proposition for multi-generational families.

On the right side of the ground floor there is a sitting room with a log burner and a downstairs bathroom (with a bath and shower above). Exposed beams partition the sitting room from the kitchen at the rear which enjoys views onto the garden. On the left side there is a dining room large enough to seat ten people with an open fireplace, a study area, a downstairs WC and a snug/playroom also with a fireplace.

One staircase leads from the study to the left side of the first floor which has two double and one single bedroom (both with views over to the Viaduct) plus a modernised family bathroom with a bath and shower.

Another staircase leading from the living room opens up to a landing with a double guest bedroom with a window overlooking the garden and a fifth bedroom/work-from-home office with two built in cupboards.

The garden is west facing with mature trees just beyond the boundary, which create a beautiful and private outlook. A courtyard that is accessed from the kitchen is home to a hot tub area which is screened off by a line of trees that use to be part of “Holmleigh’s” garden.

The total garden measurements are 80 x 55 feet, and it is mostly laid to lawn. It has side access through a gate to the property’s shingle driveway which allows off-road parking for one vehicle. There is a second entrance to the ground floor study area which is next to the side gate.

A path leads to a wooden built shed/gym at the rear of the garden which has electricity and measures 5.03m x 3.53m.

The popular village of Chappel, which is famed for it’s Victorian Viaduct is positioned between the towns of Halstead and Colchester in north Essex. The village has its own pub with a restaurant, a well-regarded primary school and a village shop. A supermarket and further amenities are all found in the nearby village of Earls Colne whilst Colchester is just ten minutes away by car.

For City commuters, the property is walking distance to Chappel Station (which also have free parking), from here you can catch the Sudbury train line to Marks Tey station which is approximately five miles to the south-east and provides a direct service to London Liverpool Street with a journey time of around fifty minutes.
