To help this Bonfire Night really go off with a bang, St. Modwen Homes is offering some sparkling deals for anyone looking to purchase a new home in the Cotswolds.

For a limited time only, St. Modwen Homes will pay the Stamp Duty and provide carpets in all four bedroom houses purchased at its Littlecombe development, located off Lister Road in Dursley.

What’s more, the much-loved ‘Suffolk’ show home is now available to purchase and, as well as having its Stamp Duty paid, the house is also being sold with carpets, curtains and light fittings included within the price, meaning people could save nearly £15,000.

Jo Casstles, Sales Manager at St. Modwen Homes, said: “Stamp Duty is often the forgotten cost associated with purchasing a new property and, at times, can be the reason for not being able to afford your dream home. By offering to pay the Stamp Duty on all of the four bedroom houses at Littlecombe, we’re significantly reducing the amount of money people have to save up, not to mention that lovely new carpets will be provided as well.”

Stamp Duty is a government tax that everyone is required to pay when they purchase a new home in the UK. For homes priced between £250,001 and £500,000, the Stamp Duty is 3% of the purchase price. The Stamp Duty cost for the Suffolk show home, which is priced at £405,995, equates to £12,179.85.

Jo said: “The Suffolk show home is the reason why many of our homeowners were initially attracted to their new house at Littlecombe. It’s a beautiful property with an enviable full height central window, which not only makes a statement but it also lets natural light flood through the house, creating a bright and spacious entrance and hallway.

“Additionally, a large balcony is accessed via two of the double bedrooms, providing the perfect space to relax and enjoy the views over the Cotswolds Edge.”

Currently, there are five different four bedroom house types to choose from at Littlecombe; The Suffolk, The Portland, The Hampshire, The Cambridge and The Southdown. Not only do the house types have different facades, but each one has also been considered to offer something different for the purchaser, from open plan kitchen and dining rooms, to bright sun rooms and separate utility rooms, allowing people to decide what suits their family best.

Jo said: “As well as the money-saving initiatives that are now available at Littlecombe, we will also be considering Part Exchange on our four bedroom homes. Under the scheme, St. Modwen Homes will purchase your existing property for an agreed price, removing all the stress from the selling process. It also means you will have no estate agent fees to pay and there is no chain to delay your move.”

There are now a range of two, three and four bedroom houses available to purchase at Littlecombe. For further information about the new homes, make an appointment with the sales team by calling 0844 243 4747. Alternatively, visit
