Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Overdale is a recently completed, bespoke home nestled in the ever popular Slad Valley. Designed and built by one of the area's best regarded builders, who has been building properties locally for more than 30 years, it is a surprisingly generous house with about 4900 square feet of accommodation. The house beautifully combines many traditional materials such as solid oak, Cotswold stone and hand finished ironwork with first class modernity such as the bespoke kitchen, glazing and bathrooms.

The plot and orientation was chosen to maximise the sunlight throughout the day and allow all principal rooms to enjoy the south facing aspect. The plot itself is deceptively large offering circa 0.83 acres in total with a generous sweeping block paved driveway leading to the garage and parking.
The house sits approximately a third of the way into the plot allowing a generous and terraced rear garden which is largely laid to lawn with mature woodland to the rear.

Internally the design incorporates a flexible layout for both family and entertainment needs. The main living floor, found on the first floor, has three linked zones; the first being an impressive 35'6" drawing room with both front and rear patio doors, a main family dining room and bespoke kitchen. The contemporary and sleek 'Häcker' kitchen is fully integrated with Siemens appliances throughout and a Silestone worktop complements the contemporary style. The sleek units have been designed to take centre stage in this family area with the utility room offering a more discrete services area.

The main family bedroom floor accessed from the main sandstone staircase comprises two options for the master suite as both are generous rooms as well as having two further bedrooms making four bedrooms and four bathrooms in all. The guest suite, accessed from a hand crafted spiral
staircase, is accessible from the reception hall and has a lovely independent feel. Adjacent to the reception hall is the media room which would make an ideal home office, cinema or gymnasium. The ground floor is concluded with the integrated double garage and plant room as well as wc.


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. Village life is focussed around the Parish Church and the Woolpack public house whilst nearby Painswick and Stroud offer a range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities. 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. The surrounding towns provide a comprehensive range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes. Education options in the area are strong in both the private and state sectors with independent schools including Kings School, Wycliffe College, Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies College and Dean Close whilst there are Grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham. Stroud station offers trains to London taking approx. 1 hour 35 minutes.


Overdale enjoys an elevated position above the road allowing views from all floors of the surrounding countryside and of a south westerly orientation. The garden has been landscaped to allow the incoming purchaser to personalise and enhance it. A number of terraced areas have been created as well as a large rear patio ideal for al fresco entertaining.
