Spinney House offers a rare opportunity to acquire an individual detached country house surrounded by its own extensive gardens and grounds, and is understood not to have been offered on the open market previously, since it was originally built.

The house itself enjoys naturally well lit accommodation, with all main rooms taking advantage of the view. The rooms are well proportioned and offer versatility, whilst generally in need of a scheme of modernisation and refurbishment, which would allow prospective purchasers the opportunity to incorporate their own requirements and taste, whilst in addition there may be a further opportunity to extend - subject to any necessary planning consents. The existing accommodation boasts a central hallway, which leads off to a useful guests/cloaks/WC, 2 main reception rooms, in addition to a study/snug and a separate games/family room.

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.
