Main Description
A historic, Grade II listed, Cotswold stone, period property in need of complete renovation and modernisation located in the quaint village of Slad, and the childhood home of famous author Laurie Lee. Open house 19th Jan 12-2 & 26th Jan 11-1 please call office to book

A stunning example of a Cotswold stone character property nestled within the Cotswold village of Slad. Accommodation comprises a large entrance hallway, a living room with wood burner, a dining room/extra reception room and a fitted kitchen. On the first floor, there is a 16' bedroom with dual aspect windows, a walkthrough room/study, a bedroom/reception room and the bathroom. On the top floor there is a further bedroom with two interconnecting attic rooms off. There would need to be some reconfiguration to make the best use of the available space particularly where the current bedrooms are. (Subject to the usual planning permissions being sought)

Outside
The property is accessed via steps from the Slad Road down to the front door. The front of the property is secluded and looks over fields and into trees with Slad Brook below. The side and rear of the property is where the majority of garden is found. There is a stone built attached outbuilding as well as access to the kitchen and a good size, relatively level lawn.

Location
This area benefits from being in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, has a parish church and a popular village pub. Slad is famous for being the home and final resting place of Laurie Lee which has been recognised by the naming of the Laurie Lee Wood as well as the Laurie Lee Wildlife Way which goes through Slad and is around 5.75 miles long. This location also allows for easy access to Stroud via the B4070. Stroud town is approximately 2.5 miles away with a wider range of shops and amenities, community and primary schooling, a leisure and sports centre, award winning weekly farmers market and a main line railway station with inter city services travelling to London (Paddington). Cirencester (10 miles), Cheltenham (18 miles) and Swindon (25 miles) are all within comfortable driving distance.
