Occupying a prime position in the stunning Dorchester town of Poundbury, forming part of Duchy of Cornwall land, is a beautiful new collection of homes at Halstock Place by Zero C, part of Places for People. The new phase that has just launched comprises of an elegant selection of spacious three and four bedroom houses offering a unique opportunity for homebuyers to purchase an outstanding new home that delivers a future-proof lifestyle, whilst reaping the rewards of living in a prestigious location that is unlike anywhere else.


Founded in 1993 and situated close to Dorset’s spectacular Jurassic coastline, the town of Poundbury is a stylish extension to ancient Dorchester, designed to create an attractive and sustainable community offering a place for residents to live, work, shop, relax and where pedestrians are prioritised over vehicles. Particular emphasis has been given to ensure all of the homes at Halstock Place are built with locally distinctive materials reflecting Dorset’s rich heritage and local character. Every home has been thoughtfully designed to combine traditional elegance with a contemporary and luxurious feel. Beautiful windows create an impressive sense of light and space throughout and generous open-plan living areas create the perfect environment to entertain friends and family with a tasty meal or simply relax and unwind after a busy working day. Symphony kitchens are classic yet stylish and come with a range of integrated high-quality appliances. Bathrooms and ensuites are equally as stylish, echoing the same traditional feel. Selected homes feature doors opening onto a private garden from the kitchen or dining room – perfect for bringing the outside in.

“Halstock Place is a highly anticipated new collection of homes that we are extremely proud to be able to offer. Each and every home has been designed to blend seamlessly into the traditional architecture of the local area, whilst also in-keeping with our signature modern twist; fusing country-living with urban convenience. The new town of Poundbury bestows a truly unique location upon Dorchester’s homebuyers, and we expect high demand from a range of buyers due to the variety of homes and purchase options available.”

Situated in the heart of Poundbury, those who choose to make Halstock Place their home will have a rich variety of stylish boutiques, local pubs and cafés just a few minutes’ walk away from home. A medley of activities and events are scheduled all year round; from the notable Dorset Food and Arts Festival, a monthly artisanal farmers market, to community picnics and hobby clubs, there is plenty to choose from. With an abundance of parkland and greenspaces woven into the urban and residential areas through a series of footpaths, Poundbury has been designed as a walkable neighbourhood – a safe yet sociable town perfect for those at all stages of life.

Commuting has been made as convenient as possible, with Halstock Place located only a 30-minute walk from two train stations; Dorchester South and Dorchester West, which both have direct links to London and Bristol.
