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

Key Features

Entrance is gained via a hallway that sets the tone for the rest of the property, with high ceilings and generous room sizes creating an open feel.

The kitchen lends itself perfectly to modern living, fitted with a selection of integral appliances and a comprehensive range of shaker style wall and base level units that provide ample storage options with work surface over. A separate utility room provides space for additional appliances, a sink unit and further work surfaces.

Also situated on the ground floor is a cloakroom and a dining room that provides the ideal space for family dining and entertaining. The principal sitting room, situated on the first floor, enjoys tasteful d├ęcor, features an attractive central fireplace and receives plentiful natural light gained via a dual aspect.

The family bathroom is tastefully fitted with a suite comprising a low level wc, a wash hand basin and a panel enclosed bath with shower attachment over.

The property offers four good size bedrooms. Two bedrooms are well appointed, fitted with a selection of fitted wardrobes and one benefits from Jack and Jill en-suite facilities.

Externally there is a delightful enclosed garden to the rear that is laid predominately to artificial lawn with an area of paving abutting the property, with electric awning over, that provides the ideal space for alfresco dining.
