With summer upon us, many people who don’t have gardens are wishing they did. Over the past two years, outside space has become more of a priority for home-buyers, whether in cities or rural areas.
While in the past we might have seen neglected or underused back gardens, now everybody is maximising the potential of every inch of outside space. So here are some of the best properties with gardens (or terraces or balconies) on the current market.
