Above the garage, is a spacious room ideal for use as a home office, games room or extra accommodation.  Access is by an external staircase from the garden.

The garden itself is beautifully landscaped to provide a quiet oasis of calm, including lawn and raised shrub beds, two circular raised ponds, Chilstone water feature, oak pergola and Indian stone sun terrace beneath that stretches the length of the property. A brick and flint built shed with electricity provides a perfect outside storage space and irrigation system for the garden.  

Poundbury is designed with a set of key human-centred principles - to put people before cars, integrate places of work with homes and invest in buildings of exceptionally high construction quality and aesthetic standards. Since breaking ground in 1993, the community has achieved worldwide acclaim from architects, town planners, academics and house builders, both for its intelligent design and success in creating a highly desirable and diverse new community.

As town houses go, this is impressive.  It’s striking, it’s versatile, and for all its size, being new it is of course efficient and low maintenance. The Guide Price is £1,450,000, and for further details or to arrange a viewing of this stunning property, contact Peter Grout-Smith of Symonds & Sampson in Poundbury 01305 251154.
