Horseshoe Cottage is a most attractive 4/5 bedroom period extended country cottage with a detached single storey annexe, super gardens and land, extending, in all, to around 3 acres, situated in a private rural location on the outskirts of Dudleston Heath.

The internal accommodation, which has been lovingly restored and extended by the current vendors, who have owned the property for a number of years, provides, on the ground floor, an excellent farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room, Living Room with a super inglenook fireplace, and three further reception rooms, a Conservatory/Sun Room and a ground floor Shower Room, together with five first floor Bedrooms (one of which is a Landing Bedroom) accessed via two staircases together with two Ensuite Bathrooms and an Ensuite Shower Room.

The gardens are a super feature of the property and have been attractively landscaped by the current vendors to provide extensive lawns and well stocked floral and herbaceous borders, containing a number of mature shrubs, bushes and trees.

The land is an interesting feature of the property and is retained within three principal enclosures of permanent pasture, ideal for the grazing of a variety of animals.

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.
