The sun is shining and evenings are getting appreciably lighter, it’s official Spring has finally arrived !
As a nation we are set to spend more time than ever outdoors this year so it comes as no surprise that a garden has soared to the top of the wish list when we are hunting for our next property.
According to a survey by The Times two thirds of buyers said outdoor space is the deciding factor when purchasing a property and having a garden, balcony or roof terrace is the second only in importance to the overall size of the property.
With this in mind take a look at properties with superb outdoor spaces we have to offer this Spring . . . .
Wood Close Farm, 5 Main Street, Wardley, Leicestershire
A beautifully appointed period family home having been stylishly enhanced in recent times and boasting a rather special situation
Externally the property is approached directly off Main Street with a driveway for a number of vehicles. The optimum orientation of this home truly sets is apart affording a high degree of privacy but importantly offering an unforgettable open aspect. The thoughtfully considered rear garden enjoys a southerly aspect and hosts a pretty parterre with box – edged yew trees directly adjacent to the house bridging the gap between the house and rear lawn. Stocked mature borders with shrubs and trees border the open pasture on the far perimeter. Ideal for summer entertaining and being sensibly maintainable the outside space is sure to charm with an array of sunny seating areas to enjoy and beyond the lawn a vegetable patch and log store. Even the Double Garage offers spacious character with wooden doors and a roof void space ideal for permanent conversion to office or perhaps ancillary accommodation ( STS).
