Poundbury is Prince Charles' vision of Britain brought to life. Masterplanned by Leon Krier, with not a modern 'carbuncle' in sight. Poundbury was conceived 20 years ago as an extension to Dorchester. Built on Farm Land, the site now houses over 500 dwellings. Unfortunately most are second or even third homes, the streets were eerily quiet. The feel of the village was not dissimilar to Portmerion.
Designed by Ben Pentreath the Duchy's architect you can view his website here http://www.benpentreath.com/
Building is expected to continue to 2024.
