Buying A Luxury Home: What to Expect from The Garden

Buying A Luxury Home: What to Expect from The Garden

For homebuyers where money is no issue, it’s a no-brainer that you’ll want to find a property that provides plenty of space for you and your loved ones. While a lot of your focus will naturally be on what lurks beneath the front door, you need to pay just as much attention to your outdoor space.

During the summer months especially, you’ll want to make the most of your garden space. Therefore, to make sure you land your dream luxury property, here are some things you need to look out for in the garden so you can be confident you’ve made the right decision.

Space

There’s no doubt about it. When you’re looking for a luxury home, you need to have plenty of garden space. You don’t want to shell out money on a fancy property to find you haven’t got much room to work with regarding the outdoor space. If you enjoy gardening, you’re going to need lots of space for all your pretty flowers and plants! 

Entertaining Area

When the sun is shining, lots of us enjoy getting in our garden and making the most of it. If you enjoy entertaining and having family and friends over, you’ll want your garden space to have a designated area for you and your loved ones. Most luxury home gardens will feature a patio or decking area to do just that. Take a look at Cameo Shores luxury homes for instance. VALIA Properties have a wide selection of luxury Cameo Shores houses for sale that boast plenty of garden entertainment space where you can host gatherings, BBQs and more!

Sun Exposure

If you’re a sun worshipper, you’re going to want your garden to attract plenty of sunlight. If you find a luxury home that has been on the market for many months and you can’t figure out why, it could be down to how much sunlight the space gets. Don’t compromise or settle for second best, especially if you have cash to splash! Your garden needs to feature plenty of sun exposure for both you and your plants.

Irrigation System

For those looking for a California luxury home, you will be aware of how dry the summers can be. Any luxury home garden should come with an automated irrigation system. This is a network of pipes that take water around the garden and deliver it to the plants through drip irrigation. You can invest in mini and pop-up sprinklers too which will help keep your lawn healthy.

Swimming Pool

Many luxury homebuyers love nothing more than to take a dip in their pool when it’s sunny outside. If you have young kids especially, a swimming pool will likely be top of the list when it comes to garden features. You’ll find plenty of luxury properties that have built-in swimming pools already. What’s more, there are tons of health benefits attached to swimming, meaning you can get a great workout in within the privacy of your outdoor space.

When you factor in how much money you’ll be spending on a luxury property, the garden space needs to match up with what you’re looking for. Sure, the inside may have everything you desire, but if the garden is a little on the small side or needs extensive work doing to it, it may be wise to continue your luxury home search.
