L and Q: Birnam Mews offers up to £60,000 in savings in Warwickshire

Stamp duty holiday and buyer incentives on homes in Stratford-upon-Avon

Housing Developer L&Q are offering substantial savings for eager house hunters at their Stratford-upon-Avon development, Birnam Mews. Buyers can expect up to £60,000 worth of savings while taking advantage of the stamp duty holiday announced earlier this month.

As a result of the lockdown, office working is a thing of the past, no more long commutes, work life balance is at an all-time high and most importantly time with family and friends is prioritised. With this in mind, buyers are looking outside of city living and embracing the open spaces and increased flexibility and affordability of country-living. Our homes at Birnam Mews is the perfect answer for buyers, who are looking for the extra space for a home office either inside the home or an outside converted shed, while enjoying the larger than average spacious rooms and gardens.

Home of the month, The Knighton, a three bedroom house, is available to purchase at £360,000, savings of £55,000 with an additional £5,800 savings in stamp duty. The stamp duty holiday is a welcome relief for home buyers enabling buyers to start moving and save thousands of pounds.

Birnam Mews is one of the first developments forming part of L&Q’s New-Build Homes: Quality Standard promise, a commitment to delivering premium fixtures, fittings and appliances as standard; at no additional cost to the buyer.

Designed to inspire a range of buyers, two show homes are available to view by appointment or virtually on lqhomes.com/birnammews. The Tiverton, a three bed house, has been styled for a young demographic, with Scandi-inspired interiors featuring bright and inviting colours alongside monochrome, geometric patterns. In contrast, The Knighton’s three bedroom show home has been designed for a more mature demographic, with a rich palette of dark woods, marble and velvet.

The high quality homes feature Nobilia kitchens, complete with integrated appliances, while bathrooms feature sleek sanitaryware and chrome fixtures. Underfoot, all homes are fitted with premium Amtico flooring, plush carpet and gloss porcelain tiling. The bedroom is fitted with mirrored sliding wardrobes and the majority will have an en-suite, and all homes come with private outdoor space.

All two to four bedroom homes feature private gardens, accessed via stylish French doors, off an open-plan living room. Modern one bedroom quarter houses share a large garden between the four properties. Front gardens will include a variety of trees, specifically selected for their potential for promoting biodiversity. Set within landscaped grounds with mature planting and children’s play areas, residents can enjoy the picturesque scenery, including the mature hedgerow, wildflowers and roosting places for birds.

Additionally, L&Q have introduced a new Early Bird reservation process, giving all purchasers the opportunity to reserve their future home for £99, with added flexibility to claim a full refund if circumstances change.
