This is a scheme that is being developed by CG Fry who have delivered numerous homes for Guinness over the years – a significant portion of which are in Poundbury. Their approach to construction and quality has been of a high standard reflecting perhaps their status as a family-owned and run business with a long-term approach.

This scheme includes 9 houses and 4 flats of a fairly traditional appearance, located within a larger housing development. The ‘cottage style’ of the houses is reinforced through the use of slightly reduced ceiling heights and joinery-made painted timber canopies. A variety of front doors in differing colours are used in the terraces.

The flats are set within an attractive and quite ‘classical’ looking building. This building is of above average quality – with window surrounds having brick quoins and brick arched window heads with reconstructed stone cills. The windows are vertically sliding sash type, enhancing the traditional appearance.

The village of Mere has various amenities and is conveniently located close to the A303. The surrounding countryside is picturesque, with the National Trust’s Stourhead Garden a short journey away.
