Sophisticated urban design

Poundbury is a distinctive community town, designed from the vision of HRH Prince of Wales to create a sophisticated urban extension to ancient Dorchester.

The clever integration of homes and commerce is the creation of renowned classical architects, whose urban masterpiece pays a respectful nod to traditional Dorset architecture.

Welcome to a place of visual splendour and superior workmanship.

High-specification homes

Luxurious elegance and meticulous attention to detail are the cornerstone of our unique Poundbury homes. Choose from an exclusive range of thoughtfully-designed apartments and houses, built to exacting standards in the classic Dorset style, with beautifully-spacious interiors benefitting from the highest quality fittings.

A private garden, balcony or terrace provides the perfect outdoor haven.



An attractive, walkable community

Poundbury’s walkable community has been the inspiration for town planners all over the world. Thanks to a series of well-connected streets and squares, the town has evolved into a secure, sociable urban quarter where many daily needs can be met on foot.

Beautiful landscaping coupled with easily accessible green open spaces latticed by a network of local footpaths makes it a pedestrian’s paradise.
