A SELECT DEVELOPMENT OF SIX FINE NEW HOMES IN A TRADITIONAL COURTYARD STYLE. PLOT FIVE £575,000. Available - Complete Now Prices from £575,000 to £625,000 Talbot Courtyard is a prestigious development of 6 new homes of about 175 sq/m (1,850 sq/ft) including double garages, with imaginatively designed exteriors and exquisite interiors, built in a secluded location on the edge of the village. A large part of Iwerne Minster was built in early C20th and run as a model village by the benevolent Ismay family, owners of the White Star Line and the Titanic. In designing Talbot Courtyard, Circle Developments have tried to recreate the romantic Cottage Orne style of that period, picking up on the use of handmade red bricks and tiles, clever brick features and detailed timber joinery that can be seen elsewhere around the village. But inside, old meets new, and each house has a carefully planned contemporary interior with the very latest electric Air Source heating, high tech insulation and top quality timber double glazed windows and doors. All of this combined with the stylish Neptune fitted kitchens and luxury bathrooms, with high specification fixtures and fittings, Amtico flooring and thick pile carpets. These attractive homes are designed for comfy modern living with lovely sitting rooms and open fireplaces, study's opening out to the gardens, and open plan combined kitchens and dining rooms ideal for family time and perfect for entertaining friends. Upstairs each house has three generous bedrooms with the master bedrooms having elegant en-suite shower rooms and built in wardrobes. Circle Developments. Circle Developments has been established for over 15 years and has a reputation for building attractive high quality housing, where attention to design and detail are of paramount importance. Where possible materials and fittings are sourced and manufactured locally in Dorset, and all the houses are covered by a 10 year ICW Developers Structural Warranty. Dorset Village Life. Talbot Courtyard enjoys a quiet and secluded setting with views towards Preston Hill and country walks starting from the doorstep. Each of these fabulous new houses is well set to give you a taste of the very best of English country life in the picturesque and thriving village of Iwerne Minster.
