Homes with glorious gardens

Gardens are a major selling feature at this time of year for buyers, as flowers bloom, plants thrive and greenery flourishes, but outdoor space as a whole has shot to the top of a buyer’s house hunting list. This is due to the pandemic where we all found a new found love for our gardens, whether it was for al fresco dining, creating interesting play areas for the children or for a bit of horticulture from homebound green thumbs. We believe this is a trend that is set to continue for the rest of the year, especially during the warmer months, so with that in mind we have selected some of our homes for sale with gardens to suit a variety of requirements…

Chapel Lane – Barrowden, Rutland

Spring has definitely sprung at this charming Grade II listed house in a popular Rutland village, as the tulips bring gorgeous colour into the walled garden. The sunny and barely overlooked garden is deceptively large as it turns the corner at the back into a more secret, secluded area. With plenty of places to sit in the sun or shade, the garden retains structure all year round with box balls, hedging and topiary. Read more

Red House Farm – Donington, South Lincs

The grounds at this beautifully presented farmhouse largely consist of the lawn to the front (ideal for children’s trampolines, slides and swings perhaps?) delineated by a striking, curving walled haha, beyond which stretches the post and railed paddock of about one acre. Read more

College Farm – Moulton, South Lincs

The attractive gardens at this Georgian farmhouse are mainly lawn with an area to the front divided by a high, old wall behind which is a brick shed and a private, sheltered, paved area capturing the sun from late morning onwards. Evergreen hedging borders the garden and divides it up into sections. At the back, a delightful triangular box garden has been clipped to create sculptural forms for year round interest, and a timber trellis arch leads you down to further lawns where a greenhouse is to one side.
