Beautiful townhouses – and links to Thomas Hardy – in Dorchester!

Work is well underway in Dorchester, where we’re building Eastgate, a collection of three and four-bedroom townhouses and a one-bedroom coach house in the centre of the town, with views across a mill stream.

The site was once occupied by the White Hart public house, which features in Thomas Hardy’s novel The Mayor of Casterbridge. To mark the site’s history, we’re incorporating its iconic feature – a sculpture of a white hart – into the new scheme.
