Dorset housebuilder CG Fry & Son has returned to the beautiful village of Portesham once again with the launch of its select new development Malthouse Meadow.

Adjacent to the original Malthouse Meadow development that CG Fry & Son built more than twenty years ago, this new collection of just 22 homes is likely to prove just as popular and is expected to sell quickly.

The mixture of two three and four-bedroom houses are a combination of stone, brick and render and perfectly complement the charming village.  Each of the houses at Malthouse Meadow has been designed for modern living with practical family space, natural light and high-quality fittings.

The village itself is nestled in beneath Blackdown Hill on which sits Hardy’s monument, that was built in memory of Vice Admiral Sir Thomas Hardy of the Battle of Waterloo.  Several the houses at Malthouse Meadow benefit from views of the rolling Dorset hills behind. 

Speaking of the development Caroline Hill, Sales and Marketing Director for CG Fry & Son, said: “We are thrilled to be able to offer a selection of houses in Portesham once again.  When we built the original Malthouse Meadow development, it was no surprise how popular the location was with buyers, and we anticipate the same level of interest this time around.

“As there are only 22 houses for sale, I would urge interested buyers to contact our sales office as we are already seeing people who are looking for a new home for the new year at this wonderful new development.”

With prices starting at £350,000, buyers can also take advantage of the government-backed Help to Buy scheme to support their step up or onto the property ladder.

Caroline Hill continues: “The Help to Buy initiative has helped thousands of homeowners move into a new build property, and that, coupled with the Chancellor’s recent announcement that stamp duty is to be abolished for first-time buyers purchasing properties worth up to £300,000, buying your own home is an even more attainable goal.”

Under the Help to Buy scheme buyers can secure their home with a five per cent deposit and a 75 per cent mortgage. The remaining 20 per cent is paid off by the Government as an equity loan, which remains interest free for five years.  With properties priced below £600,000 eligible, the townhouses can be purchased under the scheme.

Portesham is just a few miles inland from the World Heritage Jurassic coast and famous Chesil Beach. This pretty village features a stream running through it, with its own resident ducks and geese on the pond!  There are numerous village facilities including a pretty Anglican Church, great local pub, well-stocked farm shop, a thriving primary school, a popular medical centre and ‘pop-up’ Post Office.  

The village is ideally situated approximately seven miles southwest of the county town of Dorchester and seven miles west of the seaside town of Weymouth.   Both towns have train links to London Waterloo.
