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 open in the Royal Pavilion, Queen Mother Square and the Dorset County Hospital is also a short walk away.
A stunning hexagonal entrance vestibule sets the tone for the rest of the property, offering generous room sizes and stylish, beautifully presented accommodation throughout.
The kitchen enjoys a social and spacious feel, lending itself perfectly to modern living. The kitchen is well equipped, fitted with a wealth of integral NEFF appliances and a comprehensive range of wall and base level Cambridge vinyl ivory units that provide ample storage options with granite work surface over. A separate utility room provides further storage units and additional appliances.
Also situated on the ground floor is a delightful family room and a stylish dining room that provides access to a wonderful bespoke garden room that takes full advantage of its southerly facing aspect, a fabulous addition to the property of hardwood timber construction with decorative beams.
The quality of style and presentation continues up to the sitting room, tastefully finished in neutral tones and featuring an attractive central fireplace. Also situated on the first floor is a study, currently utilised as a dressing room, and the principal bedroom, appointed with a double built in wardrobe and en-suite facilities. There are three further bedrooms on the second floor, all benefiting from built in wardrobes and one benefiting from en-suite facilities, along with an impressive family bathroom that is finished with luxury in mind offering a high quality suite.
Externally the property is approached via wrought iron gates that lead to a beautifully landscaped garden that is laid to shingle with attractive flower beds that provide both colour and dimension, and a central pathway that leads to the property. The garden is walled on all sides and features a bespoke wall mounted plaque that reads ‘H.R.H’s wall’. Adjacent to the garden room is a generous Indian sandstone courtyard that provides the ideal space for alfresco dining and offers external power points and bespoke storage units.
There is a double garage with a versatile room above, accessed via an external staircase, that could be utilised as a playroom or gymnasium. The room is fitted with a double wardrobe and offers Karndean flooring, electric radiators and both telephone and television points, providing the ideal space for home working or further accommodation subject to the necessary planning consents. The roof space has lighting, is insulated and boarded and is accessed by a wooden telescopic ladder.
