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 fantastic options available. We take a closer look at three properties complemented by their beautiful gardens.
Situated in the picturesque village of Rhynie, near Huntly, this peaceful garden has plenty to keep even the keenest of gardeners busy. A large portion of the garden is laid to lawn, with the surrounding borders filled with a colourful mix of flowers and shrubs.
There is a pathway to the lower end of the garden where steps lead to a sizeable vegetable patch with accompanying greenhouse, perfect for growing a variety of fruit and vegetables. The pathway to the greenhouse is covered by a rustic, floral archway. A very pretty addition when in full flower.
There is also an attractive summerhouse and picnic table to be enjoyed, whether it’s for al fresco dining with the family, or simply enjoying a good book in the sunshine.
An impressive tree-lined driveway leads up to this traditional Georgian family home in the west end of Aberdeen. The gardens which surround the property extend to some 1.5 acres and offer a high degree of privacy, as well as excellent space for outdoor activities and relaxation.
There is an abundance of established trees throughout the gardens, including Austrian pine, beech, copper beech, laburnum, rowan, and cherry, some of which have preservation orders in place. There is also an assortment of shrubs such as rhododendron, and seasonal plants, which provide a beautiful display of colour throughout the growing seasons.
Sitting on an acre of land, this stunning home in Old Aberdeen has the most magnificent garden grounds set within a perimeter wall, part of which dates back to the 14th century. The garden is mostly made up of a perfectly manicured lawn, surrounded by mature trees. Including a beautiful flowering cherry tree.
The deep borders are filled with a colourful mixture of plants and shrubs, including herbaceous plants, rose bushes and rhododendron bushes.
Finally, there is an expansive stone-chipped area at the front of the house, offering a great setting for outdoor dining. The pleasant outlook to the surrounding garden grounds would be perfect for absorbing the serenity of this exquisite garden, whilst enjoying a meal during the warmer weather.
