Five dream stamp duty holiday homes under £500,000 – including one with a heated indoor swimming pool and sauna


FIVE dream stamp duty holiday homes have hit the market for under £500,000 – including one with a heated indoor swimming pool and sauna.

A stunning Canary Wharf apartment, an East Midlands stable conversion and a Grade B-listed building are among those up for grabs.

Estate company Rightmove listed the stylish properties, many of which come with stunning views, as buyers prepare to benefit from a tax cut intended to boost the housing market after lockdown.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak axed stamp duty earlier this month on properties under £500,000 in England and Northern Ireland until March 31 2021, while the threshold in Scotland rose from £145,000 to £250,000.

Just creeping below the stamp duty bracket at £499,000 – the most expensive of the five – is a one-bed apartment in Canary Wharf.

The swanky pad which sits on the 27th floor of The Wardian tower has a garden terrace with views out to the O2.

And fitness freaks may just have stumbled on paradise as they will get exclusive access to a 25m pool and gym right on their doorstep.

The three-bed luxury mid-terrace home comes fitted with double glazed windows and an en suite.

Weekend barbecues are perfect at this Birmingham property, according to the listing, with French doors leading out onto a wooden deck and beautiful lawn.

It is on sale for £495,0000.

A three-bed semi-detached stable conversion sits in the quaint village of Ashwell, Hertfordshire.

It is described as having a “unique character […] nestled within a small development of similar charming homes.”

For £489,995, it boasts a sweeping stone staircase and has sunny courtyard style gardens out the front and back.

Every day could be a spa day in this North Yorkshire four-bed bungalow which comes with its own swimming pool and heated sauna.

And on top of that, two of the double bedrooms offer have views over The Wolds – a series of hills and valleys curating a picturesque countryside scene.

It went up for £475,000.

The B-listed conversion comes with an open-plan living room and kitchen with views over the River Carron.

Only a few miles from the historic town Falkirk, Stirlingshire, the two-bed property is described as “featuring intriguing period design, such as ‘little and large’ windows.”

It is being sold for a bargain £229,995 and it offers online viewing.
