A property company has signed a deal to offer homes at Poundbury on a part-exchange basis.

Spicerhaart Part Exchange & Assisted Move has secured a contract with Morrish Builders, a family-owned developer which was one of only three locally to work on the Prince of Wales’ vision of a sustainable community.

The Morrish family has been involved in construction since 1954 when Fred Cummings and Les Morrish formed Cummings and Morrish Limited. In 1982, Les formed Morrish Builders with his sons Steven and David with a focus on heritage homes, using local craftsman and materials to build homes based on traditional architectural principles.

Morrish began working on Poundbury in 1997.

Jo Greaves, Morrish family member responsible for corporate communications, said: “Poundbury is a unique project and it is amazing to have been involved in it for so long, watching it grow to the bustling community it is today.

“We are frequently releasing new homes at Poundbury and it is such a sought-after location that we are never short of interest. We appreciate moving can be stressful so we want to make it as easy and quick as possible for customers to move into their new home. So, we have decided to bring in Spicerhaart Part-Exchange, another way of us assisting our customers with the buying process.”

Neil Knight, managing director at Spicerhaart Part-Exchange and Assisted Move, said: “Poundbury is a fantastic development so it is no wonder that so many people are keen to buy a home there. They will now be able to put in an offer safe in the knowledge that they will be able to sell their current home quickly and stress-free through us.”

As well as Poundbury, Morrish Builders is working on a range of other developments in the south that it will gradually be looking to offer part-exchange through the Spicerhaart service.

Luzborough Green is one such development, a bespoke collection of 18 two, three- and four-bedroom homes in Romsey, Hampshire.
