alanbrookWe may not all be green fingered gardeners, but given the opportunity we all jump at the chance to relax in our gardens. Our list of garden demands can consequently vary, with a must have sunny southerly aspect for some, whilst others seek a swimming pool, a large plot or a lake to name a few.  If these form part of your requirements we may just have what you are looking for.

The garden has always made a valuable addition to our homes and over time it has evolved to be perceived as an additional room of the home.  A room, which regardless of size or shape presents potential for you and your family to grow.  Extensions and conservatories, coupled with a landscape of colourful florals and planting have typically been the obvious choice for enhancing our gardens, but as some of our vendors have highlighted, innovative ideas and a little imagination can transform a garden into a functional space for the whole family to enjoy.

ViscountAs our families grow and hobbies evolve so do the demands from your home, one partner might like a gym, the ‘studious’ teenager a study and the mischievous toddler a playroom and then what about yourself?  This is where the garden can completely transform your home, whilst some may have big budgets to add an extension, for others an outhouse is a worthy solution presenting other benefits of its own.  Take this home in Ash as an example.  Internally, the three bedroom home is ideal for a growing family, tastefully finished and offering an open plan living area incorporating two reception rooms.  As the family has grown, also have the needs from the house which has resulted in the vendors investing in a garden cabin.  This detached addition has proven a valuable functional space complete with light, power and heating, to create a comfortable office.
