There are many ways you can add to or improve a home, from extensions, refurbishment, landscaping and so much more. One method of adding value to a home is the addition of a conservatory, or bonus garden room, and with the summer months starting to ease in, this welcome feature within the home will become an exceedingly valuable asset, allowing you to enjoy the sunnier climates and longer days with the comfort of interior furnishings, and with the unpredictability of the British summer, a roof over your head.

Many of our homes have incorporated window features, conservatories and garden rooms to create spacious, stylish and incredibly versatile spaces. With these rooms starting to come into their own, we thought we’d take a look at some of the different styles possible from our current range of properties for sale.

Church Path, Hook

west viewThis three bedroom semi-detached character home in Hook has been refurbished to offer a modern appeal whilst keeping much of its original charm. When it comes to the grounds of the home, set within a quiet country lane, with a private driveway and mature green surroundings, the garden offers a peaceful and tranquil retreat, over 60ft in depth.

A water pump with a well sets the scene for this calm environment, whilst the whole space offers character and versatility with both lawn and patio. Down at the bottom of the garden, you’ll find a detached garden office. This fully insulated room makes a useful addition to the home and has been finished with wood flooring, power, light and heating to create a fully working office. With such a peaceful setting, this is an ideal spot for working, and when you need a break, the decking area surrounding the office offers a great spot for catching the rays or getting a breath of fresh air.

Franklin Avenue, Hartley Wintney

franklin aveThis five bedroom property lies within walking distance of the village, a huge asset in such a desirable area, and continues to impress with the size and quality of the home.

The whole home enjoys bright and spacious rooms, with the space continuing through to the 95ft garden, which not only features a full width patio, lawn and shrub borders but also a large summer house.

The garden has been very well-kept and can be initially enjoyed from the comfort of the conservatory, which is accessible from both the kitchen/dining room and the lounge, to create a sociable flow through the ground floor accommodation. The pitched roof conservatory makes a versatile addition, as it offers over 17ft of living space for seating or dining furnishings, before leading out to the large patio area beyond.

The summer house, considering the size of the internal spaces of the home, is a real bonus and offers flexibility in use as it also benefits from power and a phone line connection.

Each bedroom is offered as a double bedroom, whilst the 22ft living room and 18ft kitchen/diner offer a wealth of space to enjoy in addition to a downstairs cloakroom and refitted bathroom. To the rear of the home, large French doors open out from the kitchen through to a patio area, where a path leads up through a pleasant and private lawn to a summer house at the top of the garden. This secluded spot would present an ideal home office or study.

The Street, Crookham Village

conservatoryThis five double bedroom home offers a bounty of living areas to enjoy. Space both inside and out can be found in abundance, in this classic home that enjoys pleasant views over rolling countryside.

The grounds of this home are a real selling point, not only does the property enjoy a rural outlook, but the extensive plot also backs onto open fields, which by use of a paddock fence, gives the impression of a continuing garden, with a remarkable amount of space and green land. With over half an acre, the grounds of the home are sizable on their own, and what better place to enjoy this space, than in a conservatory.

Adjoining the rear of the home, this room makes a welcome addition to the home, offering the best spot to enjoy the gardens all year round. Whilst this room is fully functional in every weather, during the sunnier days it will come into its own as it opens out to a large patio area,  creating a sociable spot for entertaining and dining.

The interior of the home does not fail to impress, to see the full property listing, please click here. Alternatively, to view this home, please contact our Fleet branch on 01252 812121 or e-mail fleet@mackenziesmith.co.uk.

 

Mytchett Road, Mytchett

orangeryThis detached four bedroom home has seen complete refurbishment and an extension to offer spacious and sociable living areas, with two reception rooms in addition to the contemporary and open plan kitchen/dining room which extends over 38ft in depth. High specification finishes complement the kitchen, featuring contemporary two toned shaker units with granite work surfaces. The kitchen has been equipped with two full sized fan ovens, a 5 ring gas hob with an extractor fan over, integrated microwave, dishwasher, tall larder fridge and an under counter freezer, with even more space in the utility room.
A central island with a solid wood work surface segments the kitchen area, allowing for an open view through to the dining area and garden.

This room is completely different to the other “garden rooms” we have featured in this blog as it combines the concept of a conservatory within the main structure, to create what can only be defined as an orangery. The pitched skylight is the core of this and allows for the room to be flooded with light, whilst the sliding doors and large window panes combine to create a wall that is almost entirely glass. These features bring the outdoors in, and with such a spacious room, create a thoroughly bright and airy ambience. During the summer months, this space would work incredibly well, allowing you to enjoy the best of the sun.
