Property Description


Bridport Road is superbly positioned within the sought after development of Poundbury. Poundbury is an urban development of the County Town of Dorchester, and is Prince Charles's vision of the development of new communities in the 21st century. Designed around the residents rather than their cars, it is intended to be a sustainable development where it is possible to meet a higher proportion of daily needs on foot, rather than relying on a car. Within walking distance there are Waitrose, The Duchess of Cornwall Hotel and Restaurant and an ever-growing range of bistros, coffee shops, beauty salons, dress shops, hairdressers, dentists, a medical centre, a garden centre and a mature Woodland Park.


Entrance is gained via a hallway that sets the tone for the rest of the property, with high ceilings and extremely generous room sizes creating a truly spacious and open feel.
The porcelanosa tiled flooring continues from the hallway through to the impressive kitchen diner, a wonderfully spacious room that enjoys a truly social feel and lends itself perfectly to modern living. The room offers an abundance of storage options and a wealth of integral appliances. A separate utility room provides additional work surfaces and access to a 'cellar' and the downstairs cloakroom.
The sitting room is a fabulous addition to the property, built by C.G.Frys and situated on the ground floor where plentiful natural light is received via a triple aspect. The room offers solid engineered wooden flooring and allows access to the delightful rear garden via double glazed french doors.
The lovely style and presentation continues to the first floor where a light and spacious landing provides access to a modern family bathroom and to two double bedrooms, the master enhanced by luxury en-suite facilities and enjoying an abundance of natural light gained via a full height bay window.
There are three further bedrooms situated on the second floor, one currently utilised as a guest room with en-suite facilities.
The premium style and finish offered internally, continues into the uniquely landscaped garden that enjoys a great deal of sunshine in the afternoons. The garden is well established, offering a selection of walled, circular areas of lawn and flower beds that houses a wide selection of mature plants and shrubs. There is a double garage with two up and over doors that offers eaved storage.
