Positioned along the village road towards the outskirts of the village, whilst being set elevated with stunning far reaching views to the rear over its own grounds and farmland beyond. The village provides a primary school, veterinary surgery and pub. The neighbouring village of Baschurch also provides a good selection of basic amenities including The Corbett School. Surrounding the village is delightful open countryside with numerous walks along country lanes. Commuters will note that Shrewsbury is readily accessible via the A5, as is Oswestry to the north. Further road links through to Telford or Wrexham.

Stamp Duty Calculator

Stamp Duty Total

You usually pay Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) on increasing portions of the property price above £125,000 when you buy residential property, eg a house or flat.

There are different rules if you’re buying your first home and the purchase price is £500,000 or less.

You’ll usually have to pay 3% on top of the normal SDLT rates if buying a new residential property means you’ll own more than one.

You won’t pay the extra 3% SDLT if the property you’re buying is replacing your main residence and that has already been sold.
