LOCATION Slad is a small Cotswold village enjoying a beautiful elevated position about 4 miles north of Stroud. It has famous literary associations, being the home of the author Laurie Lee, whose book Cider with Rosie was based upon the village and surrounding areas.
The village has the very well known public house, The Woolpack, but no other facilities. There is a convenience store at The Camp, about 2 miles away. A full range of retail, commercial, leisure and educational facilities are available at Stroud sout, or at the regional centre of Cheltenham, about 10 miles to the north. The M5 can be joined close to Cheltenham, about 8 miles away.
This particular property is situated on the edge of the village, enjoying extensive and outstanding views.
THE PLOT The extent of the plot is shown edged in red upon the OS plan for identification purposes within these sales particulars. The overall site area amounts to approximately 0.85 acres, (0.35 hectares). It directly fronts the B4070, which is a publically adopted highway.
The site slopes from its road frontage quite steeply, which enables the planned property to take full advantage of the views across the valleys to the front, and there is an area of woodland to the north west of the property. At present on site there is a detached bungalow, now scheduled for demolition.
SERVICES AND TENURE Mains services of water and electricity are connected to the existing property, and drainage will be to a newly constructed private system. Interested parties should address specific enquiries to the relevant service Company.
