Over the last couple of years, the garden has become ever more present in the demands of aspirational buyers – having a wonderful open space for kids to play, summer soirées to be held, or relaxation to be had, are just some of the many, many reasons one would want a garden of their dreams.
Gardens, much like the homes they are found in, come in all manner of shapes, sizes and designs. From sprawling country grounds to quaint cottage seclusion, landscaped modernity and niche urban pockets, there is always a unique way of approaching a garden.
It is with that in mind that we have chosen a selection of our favourite homes with glorious gardens currently on the market with us.
