SituationBeechwood House occupies a prominent position overlooking Beechwood Square within Poundbury, an urban development of the County Town of Dorchester, just a short drive from the world famous Jurassic Coast. Poundbury is Prince Charles's vision of the development of new communities in the 21st century. Designed around the residents rather than their cars, it is intended to be a sustainable development where it is possible to meet a higher proportion of daily needs on foot, rather than relying on a car. Within walking distance there are Waitrose, The Duchess of Cornwall Hotel and Restaurant and an ever-growing range of bistros, coffee shops, beauty salons, dress shops, hairdressers, dentists, a medical centre, a garden centre and a mature Woodland Park. There is a thriving community with an active community hall, community church & first school. Monart Luxury Spa is situated within The Royal Pavilion, Queen Mother Square and Dorset County Hospital is just a short distance away.

AccommodationEntrance to this delightful apartment is gained via a hallway that houses a useful storage cupboard, an airing cupboard and offers wooden doors to all principal rooms.
