The Old Vicarage is a handsome Grade II listed former vicarage occupying an elevated position on the upper slopes of the village of Slad with stunning rural views across the valley. Believed to date back to 1838 built of ashlar stone, the property was sold by the church in 1966 and has been a private residence ever since. Property features an abundance of natural light amongst a breadth of period features throughout to include high ceilings, sash mullioned windows and open fireplaces. There is a large drawing room with bay window overlooking the front garden and views beyond the hedge line. The current owners have fitted French oak flooring in the dining room and the Kitchen/breakfast room has a mixture of floor and wall mounted storage with bespoke cabinets, oil fired Aga, a Calor gas powered range cooker and there are two large cellars below.

The first floor bedrooms and bathrooms are arranged around an impressive landing and on the second floor are 2 further bedrooms and attic space with enormous potential for further conversion. The detached former coach house has its own independent access and provides flexible living/working space which would accommodate a variety of individual requirements.

Outside the property boasts a private sweeping driveway up to the house with ample parking for several cars. There is a large area of level lawn to the front of the property and steps lead up to the large rear garden which features an array of mature trees and plants.

Situated in the South West of the Cotswolds, this naturally hilly, wooded country has deep valleys, whose green slopes are a patchwork of small fields. The village of Slad lies in the heart of the valley and has an excellent pub, The Wool Pack. Stroud, which lies further down the valley, is an interesting old town and a centre for the arts, as well as having a mainline railway station to London Paddington, day to day shopping, an excellent weekly Farmer's Market on Saturday, recreational and educational facilities. The larger centres of Cheltenham, Gloucester and Cirencester are very accessible. There is a particularly good range of schooling in the locality, both private and state, including two excellent secondary schools in Stroud, Stroud High and Marling, and alternatives include the Cheltenham schools, as well as Beaudesert Park in Minchinhampton, or Wycliffe College at Stonehouse.
