DESCRIPTION

Halls are favoured with instructions to offer Sycamore House, in Ellesmere, for sale by private treaty.

Sycamore House is a most interesting Grade II Listed 4 / 5 Bedroom three storey period town house of great charm and character with a courtyard garden and parking in a convenient edge of town location.

The property, which is believed to date back, originally, to 1780, offers extremely flexible, interesting and deceptively spacious internal accommodation of great interest, at present, comprising an External Entrance Porch, reception Hall, Cellar, Sitting Room, Boiler Room, Dining room, Breakfast Room and Kitchen, together with a first floor Bathroom, Shower room, Lounge/Bedroom 1 and Bedroom 2, and three further Bedrooms on the second floor (Bedroom 3 with En-suite). The property has the benefit of gas fired central heating and is for sale with the fitted carpets included in the purchase price.

The gardens are an interesting feature of the property and briefly comprise a private walled courtyard garden directly to the rear of the house with a parking area situated a short distance from the property.

The sale of Sycamore House does, therefore, provide an excellent opportunity to purchase a period town house of such charm and character, which, also, has immense potential for a "Bed & Breakfast" usage (subject to necessary consents).

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.
