Stamp duty offer on new development
Sevenoaks council has received a planning application seeking permission to convert a redundant office building and a ragstone outbuilding into four flats.
The application is for a 17th century grade II listed High Street building.
The building was once a pub – first the Carpenters Arms and then the Brickmakers Arms, and after the last war was the Top Of The Hill Cafe. More recently it has been office accommodation with residential use on one floor. Snap up a two-bedroom Bourne housetype at Taylor Wimpey’s Leybourne Chase development and you may get your stamp duty paid for you.
The stylish two-bedroom Bourne is from £312,000 at the development near West Malling and is ideal for firsttime buyers or downsizers.
It’s available under the government-backed Help to Buy low deposit scheme and if Taylor Wimpey also picks up the tab for the stamp duty, cash can be saved there too. The stamp duty offer is subject to status and is not applicable for property investors or second-home owners.
The Bourne features an open-plan living/dining room with double doors leading to the private back garden, a modern kitchen and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.
Upstairs there’s an en-suite master bedroom, an additional double bedroom and a main bathroom. Allocated parking is provided.
