With the nation re-set to a new normal and buyers seeking lifestyle changes, Storey Homes is marking the approaching winter season with an incredible offer on The Sycamore, a stunning detached five-bedroom home at Birch Meadow in the historic village of Barkway, Hertfordshire.  Providing an exciting opportunity to enjoy an impressive new home this Christmas, in addition to the £15,000 saving thanks to the current stamp duty holiday, the family owned developer will settle the remaining stamp duty balance, providing a further saving of £14,997.


With incredibly spacious rooms and a generous open planned statement kitchen which spans across the back of the whole house, this detached property is ideal for hosting festive soirees.  Additionally, a downstairs study offers fantastic work from home space and a glorious south facing garden creates the ultimate easy living environment for the whole family.  Featuring details including integrated Bosch appliances, eye catching moulded architrave and skirting and two beautiful en-suites with sanitary ware by Roca, the Sycamore’s proud owners will be able to deck the halls in style this Christmas.

Katy Jordan, Managing Director at Storey Homes, adds:


“Whilst the stamp duty holiday offers significant financial savings, the additional £14,997 saving will help ensure the buyers of this stunning new home can enjoy quality time together this Christmas.  Entertaining might be on a smaller scale this year, but it’s easy to imagine this home buzzing with friends and family.  The sleek interior in this property coupled with the generous space creates a fantastic environment conducive to making lasting memories and a wonderfully exciting start to 2021.”
