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. It is designed to be a sustainable development where it is possible to meet a higher proportion of daily needs on foot, rather than relying upon a car. Within walking distance to the property there are a plethora of amenities including Waitrose, The Duchess of Cornwall Hotel and Restaurant and an ever-growing range of bistros, coffee shops, beauty salons, shops, hairdressers, dentists, medical centre and garden centre. A Monart luxury spa is scheduled to open in the Royal Pavilion, Queen Mother Square in early 2019 and the Dorset County Hospital is also a short walk away.
Entrance is gained via steps to an impressive Pillared Porch which opens to an open and light hallway with high ceiling that sets the tone for the rest of the property. The stylish wooden flooring, with underfloor heating, carries throughout the ground floor and contrasts perfectly against the neutral tones of the walls. The impressive kitchen/breakfast room enjoys a social and spacious feel overlooking the rear garden. The room is flooded with natural light via the larger triple aspect windows. There is an abundance of wall and base units with Granite worksurface over and inset Butler sink. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, fridge freezer and Aga. The central island utilises the large space on offer perfectly. A door leads to the utility room with additional units, workspace and plumbing for a washing machine. Further rooms located on the ground floor include a spacious snug and office space/shower room – the room is currently furnished as a shower room with wash hand basin and WC.
The style and presentation continues to the first floor where a light and spacious landing provides access to a further grand reception room enjoying a triple aspect and furnished with an attractive feature fireplace. The impressive, dual aspect Master bedroom leads to a separate dressing area with plentiful storage through to tastefully fitted en-suite facilities.
Stairs lead to the second floor housing a family bathroom with shower that also serves two further double bedrooms. Bedroom three offers large fitted wardrobe space and a dual aspect overlooking the garden and rooftop views of Maiden Castle. Bedroom two has fitted wardrobes and leads through to private en-suite facilities.
Further points to note are the rooftop views available from the second floor of the home and the fully furnished windows with wooden shutters.
Externally there is a delightful and southerly aspect enclosed garden to the rear and side of the home that is laid predominately to lawn with an area of decking abutting the property providing the ideal space for alfresco dining. There is a paved area directly to the rear which narrows to provide a path across the main grassed area of the garden. A variety of mature and attractive plants and shrubs add colour and dimension. There are two gates either side of the property to gain roadside access. To the farthest side of the plot is garden access to the double garage. An iron staircase, leads to a self-contained studio.
