When looking for your ideal family home in the country, sometimes it can feel like a choice between a great house with plenty of room but a disappointing garden, or a property which just misses the mark but has a fabulous garden.
With many of our developments at Berkeley Group, you won't have to make a choice between the two. Lots of our properties feature homes built to high specifications with room for all the family, as well as gorgeous garden spaces where you can enjoy the great outdoors from the comfort of your own home. Here are just some of the developments which have fantastic properties with gardens to admire.
Bordered by a gorgeous 34-acre Country Park, the 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes found within our Abbey Barn Park development are surrounded by natural beauty at practically every turn. The tranquil woodland nearby makes for an excellent walking spot on sunny days, but nothing quite beats the calm of your own private garden space where you can relax and unwind in peace.
With your own patio area to set up your garden furniture, you can configure your own back garden oasis however you choose, whether that's with an al fresco dining area or reclining sun loungers. Along with the stone patio space, you will find a carefully considered lawn area and space to grow your own plants.
Inside the homes themselves, you'll find a modern kitchen full of useful features like LED downlighting and integrated Bosch appliances, spacious living areas with underfloor heating on the ground floor, and bathrooms finished to a high-spec to ensure you can live comfortably.
This beautiful development offers 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes sporting traditional architecture blended with the high specification you'd expect from a contemporary home. Not only does this development have beautiful open spaces within the site itself, but you'll also find the Downs Link and many of the south coast beaches close at hand if you fancy a day out somewhere.
Looking closer to home, there is a patch of gorgeous green space right on your own doorstep for those days where you'd prefer to lounge out in nature rather than be walking through it. The patio space is perfect for barbecues and small gatherings, while the greenery has been designed to add some flair and charm that makes the most of the available space.
Inside you'll find light and airy spaces which flow all of the fresh, vibrant energy from your garden right into the home itself, with the patio doors opening into an open plan living / dining area so you can make the most of space. The kitchen and bathrooms are all fitted out to make living here a breeze, complementing your lifestyle and putting your mind at ease.
Hartland Village, St Edward's landmark development in Fleet, comprises homes and gardens nestled against a backdrop of beautiful Hampshire woodland.
While the development itself features an abundance of green space, residents also have the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors without leaving their home. Large open-plan kitchen/family rooms are filled with light thanks to full-height French doors that open out onto patios and generously-sized lawned gardens, providing plenty of space for entertaining and all the family in the summer months.
Hartland Village will incorporate a new village green, play areas, a linear park, and trails and pathways linking the development to the magnificent 70-acre country park where residents and the wider community can enjoy country walks, summer picnics and outdoor exercise. To the entrance of this new neighbourhood, a scenic lake and humped-back bridge is framed by woodland and landscaping; it incorporates walking and cycle routes to encourage an active, outdoor lifestyle and engagement with the neighbours.
North London has its own fair share of locations which offer country living while still being a commutable distance from central London, with our Trent Park development in Enfield being a prime example. This collection of inspired 4 and 5 bedroom homes are perfectly positioned in the north London triangle of Oakwood, Cockfosters and Hadley Wood, surrounded by parkland which gives the house here a verdant backdrop for your home life.
The 4 bedroom Wisteria Collection and 5 bedroom Bevan Collection homes are idyllic properties which appeal to those looking for a London postcode without sacrificing ample garden space. On the inside, you'll find shaker-style kitchens and bathrooms full of charming features, such as a convenient wine cooler and his & hers washbasins.
To the rear of the property, you'll find plenty of private garden space to make the most of those summer nights entertaining dinner guests with outdoor dining, or you can the most of your own slice of the great outdoors where you can grow your own plants or vegetables. All of the properties are either north or south-facing, so you can secure your ideal property based on where you prefer the sun to be at what point in the day.
The value of having your own private garden space is sometimes overlooked, and when it's paired with a well-designed property that boast plenty of appealing features, it can be a particularly attractive combination.
