A modern detached house occupying an elevated setting overlooking the Slad Valley currently offering three bedrooms with gardens surrounding the house and ample off road parking. Constructed in 2014, the house is traditionally built using Cotswold stone with oak window lintels whilst internally there are exposed oak beams and a stone fireplace with oak beam over combined with modern conveniences including underfloor heating and double glazing.
The ground floor accommodation is currently comprised of a sitting room with limestone flooring and fireplace housing a Stovax stove, a kitchen/breakfast room fitted with oak units and a Belfast sink and a cloakroom. On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate shower enclosure.
Planning permission (S.17/0405/HHOLD) is in place for an extension that will create a ground floor dining room with delightful views over the valley, add an en suite bathroom to one of the bedrooms and create access for an attic room.
Outside, the gardens surround the house and are mainly laid to lawn and offering delightful views across the Slad Valley.
Slad is a delightful village clinging onto the edge of the Slad Valley to the North of Stroud. The village is famous for being the home (and final resting place) of author Laurie Lee who wrote Cider With Rosie based on his childhood in the village. The Elliot (Swifts Hill) Nature Reserve offers views to Wales on a clear day and is criss-crossed by footpaths as well as being home to rare orchids and adders. Slad is around 2 miles from Stroud with Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester 7, 11 and 14 miles respectively. Village life is focussed around the Parish Church and the Woolpack public house whilst nearby Painswick and Stroud offer a wider range of facilities including the award winning Stroud Farmers Market. Cheltenham is the main regional centre offering a comprehensive range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes in addition to festivals throughout the year embracing topics ranging from racing to literature and music to science.
