Poundbury is the perfect Dorset location. Central and supremely well-appointed, it mixes the best of modern convenience with old-style architectural elegance.
Exquisitely located, this stunning three-storey, five-bedroom house enjoys the best of both worlds: tucked away in rural, leafy splendour yet close to the convenience of town.
Built from traditional brick and flint, the quality property constructed in 2001 combines age-old style with elegant modernity.
The main entrance opens onto a generous entrance hall with a discreet cloakroom and doors that open onto all the ground floor rooms.
You are immediately struck by the light and airiness.
The spacious living room is on the ground floor a rarity within Poundbury. Flooded with light, boosted by the double aspect, with a window to the front and charming French doors that open to the sun-lit garden.
This room is very much the heart of this family house. There is also an elegant fireplace with a trouble-free living flame coal-effect gas fire.
This property is all about light. The formal dining room also enjoys a double aspect with windows to the front and side. It could easily be a play room depending upon your needs.
Undoubtedly it is a house full of wonderful surprises and the first that strikes you is the sheer flexibility and size.
The floor space is particularly generous for this exclusive quarter of Poundbury: more than 2,400 square foot in total.
The kitchen is immaculate, fitted with a range of modern wall and floor mounted units with work surfaces, inset sink unit and integrated Neff appliances including a slide and hide oven, a warming drawer and an induction hob.
A door opens into a useful utility room which is fitted with a range of wall and floor mounted units, work surfaces, sink unit, plumbing for an automatic washing machine, space for a tumble dryer and a door opening to the garden.
The first-floor is again flooded with light: the landing is a delightful bright space with yet another window looking out across greenery.
The master bedroom is the last word in luxury, with a modern en-suite bathroom with a corner soaking tub with new taps and shower attachment. There is also a shower room on this floor with double shower unit.
Storage has been expertly thought out and is generous to a fault. Both of the other two bedrooms on this floor also benefit from either fitted or built-in wardrobes.
The top floor opens onto a large light landing with views over rooftops and serves two more spacious bedrooms sharing a modern family bathroom with wall mounted shower attachment and a trifold glass shower panel, over the bath. All rooms on this floor enjoy eaves storage cupboards. This whole space could easily transform into a master suite with ample storage, a guest suite or a hobby area with a media room.
The loft is boarded and accessed via a fitted loft ladder.
Outside THE GARDEN
This is perhaps the ultimate in convenience: an enclosed, landscaped garden laid largely to lawn with a sun terrace and mature, well-stocked shrub borders. A tranquil, green haven.
To the front of the house there is another small garden area enclosed by iron railings. The gated driveway provides extremely generous off-road parking: very unusual in this area - as well as a detached double garage with double up-and-over doors, power and lighting.
Location Poundbury is Prince Charles model village, an urban extension to Dorchester: urban ease surrounded by some of Dorset's most glorious countryside.
Fast becoming one of the most fashionable residential areas in Dorset, Poundbury is just a short distance from the county town of Dorchester, famed for its literary history and weekly market. It is also within close proximity of two well-regarded local schools, Dorchester Middle School and Thomas Hardye Senior School, and there is a useful mainline station to London Waterloo and Bristol as well as the County Hospital. Poundbury itself offers a variety of facilities including cafes, restaurants, pub, vet, surgery, dentist, supermarket, hairdressers, play-park, leisure centre and garden centre. Unlike Dorchester, parking is free and easy.
