2 bedroom flat for sale

Vickery Court, Poundbury, Dorchester


Property Description

Full description

Parkers are delighted to offer for sale this exciting new development of two bedroom apartments in the North East Quadrant in Poundbury, offered for sale 30% below market value. Prices from £143,500.

Situation - Vickery Court sits in the very heart of Poundbury, close to its central square, Queen Mother Square, with very easy access to all the amenities of the thriving communities of both Poundbury and Dorchester. Designed around the residents rather than their cars, Poundbury 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 the car. Within walking distance there are amenities such as Waitrose, the newly arriving public house and hotel, garden centre, a medical centre, dentists, and an eclectic mix of shops. The Poundbury community actively engages in a host of well attended events including the annual food festival.

Discount To Open Market Scheme - The development is being marketed under a Discount to Open Market scheme, which dictates that the properties are to be sold at 30% less than the current market value. There is no catch, no equity loan, no shared ownership; this truly is a fantastic opportunity to either get onto the housing ladder or to purchase a home which may currently be un-affordable!
