Poundbury is an urban extension to the county town, built on the principles of architecture and urban planning as advocated by The Prince Of Wales in 'A Vision of Britain'. Poundbury gives priority to people, rather than cars, and is a mixture of commercial buildings with residential areas, shops and leisure facilities to create a walkable development. The property is situated in a convenient location in the stylish Buttermarket and also within walking distance of Queen Mother Square, which provides a good range of amenities including Waitrose, a public house, butchers, gallery, coffee houses, restaurant and garden centre. Across the Poundbury development there are a variety of boutiques, a post office, veterinary practice, dental surgeries and doctors’ surgeries, along with a number of specialist outlets and Damers First School.

The county town of Dorchester has a great selection of both independent and national retailers, choice of cinemas and restaurants and a couple of museums, whilst the seaside town of Weymouth again boasts great shopping and has an award winning sandy beach, marina and picturesque old harbour.
