It’s commonly believed that the principle reason why people buy a home is for its location, but the truth is a little more diverse.
According to new research, the top three reasons for making a house purchase is based on location, price and the property’s garden. Given that over the coming months we are all likely to be spending a lot more time in our gardens and using it as our primary outdoor space, we thought we’d share with you some of the beautiful gardens belonging to homes that Parrys and Fine & Country have had the pleasure to sell in recent times. Who knows, perhaps these beautiful gardens will inspire you to get stuck into giving your own garden a makeover – it’s a worthwhile investment.
Small gardens can be as beautiful as large sweeping grounds, as shown in this property in Beaupreau Place, Abergavenny. Its pretty borders and manicured area of lawn as well as an attractive fruit tree and a bench to sit on to enjoy the bijou surroundings, make it a relaxing place of tranquility in a relatively built up and suburban area.
And, as you can see, whether your garden is big or small, a stunning backdrop can do a lot of the work required in providing drama and majesty to a garden. We are lucky to live in an area where mountains dominate the skyline, and every home has a slightly different view of our familiar local scenery. Who can resist views of the mighty Blorenge, Sugarloaf and Skirrid?
Last year, Parrys Fine & Country had the opportunity to market Ty Boda, in Llanover, a property which has taken part in the National Garden Scheme’s Open Gardens for a number of years. Located on four acres with views over the Vale of Usk, Ty Boda enjoys meadows planted with over 1300 native trees, an orchard and fernery as well a wildlife pond with jetty and medicinal herb garden. With delights and surprises around every corner, the owners took time to create a garden haven that could be enjoyed with the turning of each season.
So, if you find yourself inspired during this period of isolation, why not think about ways to spruce up your own outside space, however little or large it may be.
