Summer Days Are Sweeter Out in the Garden

As the days get longer and warmer it is natural after the long cold winter that we crave to be outside. If you have a garden regardless of its aspect, or size you have the opportunity to create additional living space at home, for at the very least a few months of the year.

The British have long had a love affair with their gardens made more popular by the 1st tv shows to inspire us like Ground Force which actually finished running 10 years ago! Now the popularity of homes and gardens blogs, Instagram, and websites such as Houzz show that we all love to gain inspiration from taking a look at other peoples homes.

Here is a small selection of some of our gardens currently on the market (with houses too!) 

Ellerburn is one of Huddersfield's finest examples of 1930's architecture, set in sumptuous, well maintained grounds extending to approximately 1 acre and having outstanding far reaching views across the Magdale Valley and beyond. This home in Honley is what garden dreams are truly made of. A great example of a mature garden, planting is key and a healthy lawn, mown carefully, to achieve its luxurious stripes.


Knowle Cottage has generous grounds which have been professionally landscaped with inset lighting to the driveway, if the stunning house and the  the gardens are not enough to tempt you there's a superb 2 bedroomed detached coach house within the grounds ideal for a granny annexe or teenage suite which extends to approximately 740sqft. Seeking a professional's help when dealing with a large garden can be very useful. The colourful shrubs and bushes used here give interest and break up the large lawned area to give a really attractive overall effect.

Greenfield House, a 5 bedroom detached home with annexe has landscaped gardens to 3 sides, Tiered gardens to rear make the most of an amazing view and are the obvious option for those of us living in the hillier areas. If you have hard landscaped areas a good tip from this home is the use of many pots to soften and add greenery to the patio garden areas. This is a lovely place to sit with a chilled glass of something nice and look at the picturesque magdale valley (we do Countryside views so well in Yorkshire). A stunning orangery is the perfect place to retreat on the cooler evenings.


St Marys Avenue is a 3 bed detached home in Mirfield with a feature circular shaped lawn well stocked with a variety of plants, flowers and small shrubs providing an array of colour together with small trees, rockery, timber garden shed, water tap and open views over fields to the rear. The owner has put a great deal of thought into her garden design and it really does show through.


Situated in Blackley and dating from 1850 this character 3 bed semi has a fantastic sized garden with simply stunning views over open countryside. There is lots of room to plan a stunning garden, a nice feature is the very large patio, a great entertaining space. The garden is retained by stone walling just in case the rolling hills in the background didn't give enough of a clue that you were in God's own county!


This 6 bed modern home in the village of Northowram has landscaped gardens which are perfect for a family. There is plenty of space for childrens play equipment, and some areas to sit with friends The gardens back onto open space with lovely views of the countryside. Planted borders, and a treehouse means there really is something for everyone to gain enjoyment with and define the areas that are more adult focused from the childrens.


If you would like to view one of these homes then please get in touch, or for even more garden inspiration take a look at our other homes for sale. Sunshine not included but we can all hope that Summer has now arrived.
