Property Description


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 situated within the Royal Pavilion, Queen Mother Square and the Dorset County Hospital is also a short walk away.


This substantial property offers a wealth of accommodation that is well presented throughout. The kitchen/diner enjoys a spacious and social feel, lending itself perfectly to family dining. The kitchen is well appointed, fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base level units that provide ample storage options with work surfaces above. There are a wealth of integral appliances including a Rangemaster electric oven with gas hob and extractor hood over. The room receives plentiful natural light gained via a dual aspect with windows to both the front and side and a set of french doors that provide access to the garden.
Also situated on the ground floor is a study and a generous reception room, a real treat for Poundbury.
Stairs rise to the first floor where a spacious landing provides access to a generous dual aspect sitting room that features an attractive gas fireplace and enjoys lovely views on to the crescent. The master bedroom enjoys generous dimensions, is well appointed with fitted wardrobes that provide ample storage options and benefits from an en-suite shower room.
There are three further generous bedrooms situated on the second floor together with the family bathroom, tastefully fitted with a suite comprising a low level wc, a wash hand basin, a panel enclosed bath and a shower cubicle.
Externally there is a beautifully landscaped walled low maintenance garden to the rear that is laid to areas of paving, shingle and box hedging. The garden provides access to a gated parking area and there is a single garage with power and light.
