It’s National Gardening Week between 27th April to 2nd May, so we thought it was time to grab our Vitamin G and introduce you to Langley House in Upton… Outdoor space has become a huge priority for property buyers over the last year and if you decide to live in our part of the world, Langley House is definitely one to allow you to connect with nature and boost your mental and physical wellbeing…
This magnificent setting comprises of extensive lawns circa 2.15 acres, and woodland, with far reaching views across the open countryside between Stamford and Peterborough.
Created by the landscape designer Neil Hewertson from Stowell Park, they are in a formal, geometric design of predominantly neatly clipped beech hedging delineating lawns and boundaries, the backdrop beyond is of trees and woodland. Areas along the periphery have been left uncut to add texture and encourage wildlife.
The pleasing symmetry of the house is reflected in a careful balance of uniformity in the garden. Dwarf box hedging enclose colourful beds around the house itself where climbers such as wisteria and hydrangea petiolaris are venturing up the walls, beyond which a wide gravelled band encircles the entire building. On one side a parterre with box hedging and topiary adds decorative interest, and to the south and east, with French doors opening from the house, areas are set out for sitting and relaxing or alfresco dining.
On the south side the edge of a retaining brick wall is studded with box balls, where wide stone steps in the centre lead up to the south lawn, creating a sheltered spot directly outside the drawing room.
There is plenty of room to also install a swimming pool, a tennis court or build a garage [subject to planning] if someone wanted to.
