Stamp duty of­fer on new development

Kent Messenger Maidstone - West Kent Property - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
