      View payable Stamp Duty for this property

    For me, this has many of the characteristics of a more expensive home, particularly being set back nicely in the generous grounds, with a sweeping driveway approach and yet plenty of grounds to the rear and good views too. One therefore where adding value should be possible over time.
