PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Slade Farm House is a detached property much improved and significantly extended by the current owner. Set under a pitched tiled roof and dressed with stone quoins the property enjoys an elevated position with wonderful views over its own landscaped garden and the Windrush valley.

All four bedrooms have en-suites and enjoy attractive views over the nearby countryside in addition there is ample loft space.
