Buy a W12 townhouse, get a spring stamp duty holiday
DEVELOPERS eager to get spring sales under way are offering tempting deals to prospective buyers, from trimming prices and paying stamp duty to taking their current homes in part exchange. At Ashchurch Villas in west London, First Base is offering all three.
Set in a private mews, the scheme of 15 townhouses, above, slots nicely into a Victorian conservation area bordering Ravenscourt Park, one of the district’s most family-friendly neighbourhoods with well-kept homes, good primary schools and small specialist shops that appeal to buyers on the lookout for a larger new home.
Each townhouse has high ceilings, glass-walled open-plan living spaces, a secluded garden, a garage, huge utility room and even a self-contained annexe that is ideal for a live-in nanny or a kids-free office or studio.
In addition the developer will pay up to £200,000 in stamp duty and buy your existing home, up to the value of £1.2 million based on an independent valuation.
The homes cost from £2.15 million. Call Strutt & Parker on 020 7318 4677 for full details.
