Three properties for garden-lovers
We all have a special feature that we set our heart on when house-hunting. If outside space is yours, the current market has some real gems on offer. We take a look at three properties complemented by exceptional gardens.
For the dedicated gardener – £535,000
If you like to be hands-on in the garden, this Victorian home near St. Cyrus is sure to capture your attention. It comes complete with polytunnel, shed, orchard and extensive lawns.
Let your imagination run wild with 1.25 acres of grounds to play with. An extra surprise comes in the springtime when the garden’s 5,000 bulbs burst into life, creating a stunning display of flowers.
A pocket of calm – £398,000
If you’re looking for somewhere to really relax, this villa in Huntly is a peaceful haven tucked away in a popular residential neighbourhood. Beautiful inside and out, it boasts period features and a well-maintained garden. Feast your eyes on a myriad of flowers, enjoy the soothing sounds of the fountain or watch the fish laze in the pond.
A separate bothy (currently used as a studio) offers another hideaway, and the greenhouses and outbuildings will give potential buyers plenty of extra space to take advantage of.
A country cottage garden – £185,000
If you’re a gardening enthusiast who likes the idea of living in the country while being close to the coast, this two-bedroom detached cottage won’t disappoint.
Just a few miles drive from the popular coastal village of Cruden Bay, this lovely home boasts a mature garden complete with countryside views, a terrace fit for entertaining friends and its very own vegetable plot. The garden has been well-maintained by the current owner with a variety of seasonal plants, meaning you’ll be treated to beautiful colours all year round.
