Stamp Duty Savings
Due to the beneficial stamp duty treatment of custom built homes, you could save up to tens of thousands of pounds by buying a custom built home at The Acre, as opposed to a traditional new build house.
We like our housing to be elegant, sassy, modern. But mostly, we want it to have that elusive quality – homeliness. That's why we choose John Pardey Architects, who excel at such blending.
We think houses should offer a warm welcome: a proper ‘threshold’ moment; a sense of coming home with the fireplace as the heart of the home. And we want light and views to flow throughout the space giving long views through the property and of stuff going on in the garden.
The gardens have been designed so each element adds moments of wonder and delight to the overall setting. They have been shaped as carefully as the homes themselves. There’ll be bird houses, bat bricks and insect hideaways sprinkled throughout the site. The landscape has been designed to manage rainwater with green roofs, rain gardens, bridges, ponds and channels.
Sitting comfortably between the twin delights of Oxford's bustling city centre and the wonders of the Cotswolds, The Acre perfectly dovetails our aspiration to develop schemes that straddle the opportunities and society life which town can offer and the beauty and tranquillity of the open countryside.
Whether works by da Vinci, Cromwell's death mask or rock festivals float your boat then the city's museums and lively cultural scene has it all. Or check out the Henley Regatta nearby.
At HAB we’re delighted to announce our newly-minted partnership with the part exchange specialist Hamro. Available with immediate effect for The Acre, this part exchange offer can help remove all the hassle and stress that can go with selling your own house. Working with Hamro, you’ll get a fair value for your existing home, with no complications of property selling chains and no agents’ fees to pay. Plus you'll be able to stay in your current home until your new custom build HAB home is ready.
Mortgage finance is readily available for custom builders and it can be selected to suit your circumstances as with traditional mortgage products. We will work with our mortgage advice partner Buildstore Mortgage Services to gather information about the perfect finance deal for your own custom build. And don’t forget that as stamp duty may only be payable on part of the value of your finished custom built home, you could make financial savings in the process (but make sure to take your own advice on this!).
Drop us your details and we'll keep in touch
