Multi award-winning housebuilder, St. Modwen Homes, is offering all purchasers a treat when they buy a new home at Woodlands Reach, near Coalville, this Halloween – and there are no tricks or haunted houses in sight.

For a limited time only, St. Modwen Homes will be paying the Stamp Duty and providing carpets throughout the property, when people purchase a three bedroom house at Woodlands Reach – meaning they could save in excess of £3,000.

There are currently two different styles of three bedroom houses to choose from at Woodlands Reach, including The Earl and The Dean, both of which are semi-detached properties.

Each home has been designed to incorporate much-loved traditional features such as high ceilings and large windows, whilst benefitting from the latest eco-friendly technology, modern fixtures and fittings and a 10 year build guarantee. Each property also benefits from having contemporary bathrooms and modern kitchens, as well as French doors fitted as standard that lead from the open plan kitchen and dining room onto the rear garden. Prices for the three bedroom homes start from £176,950.

Jo Winston, Sales Manager at St. Modwen Homes, said: “The three bedroom properties at Woodlands Reach are superb for people looking for a new home with a bit of extra space, whether that’s for entertaining guests at a Halloween party or for a growing family.

“Stamp Duty is often one of the forgotten costs associated with buying a new house so by offering to pay this tax for people we’re hoping to give purchasers a bit of a helping hand, whether it’s their first home or their moving up the property ladder.”

Stamp Duty is a government tax that is payable on all homes in the UK. For properties priced between £125,001 and £250,000, the Stamp Duty cost is one per cent of the total purchase price. For the three bedroom Earl property priced at £176,950, this equates to £1,769.50.

Jo said: “As it’s Halloween, we thought we’d treat our new homeowners to some luxury carpets as well – perfect for making their new home feel extra cosy in the upcoming winter months.”

In addition to the three bedroom properties, there is also a selection of spookily good four bedroom houses available at Woodlands Reach.
