SELLERS INSIGHT We bought our family home off plan in July 1999. We wanted a big garden and our corner plot offered us the best space and privacy on The Acorns development. We watched it grow from the foundations and moved in just before the Millennium.
One of the wedding gifts from our landscape architect friend was the plans for the garden. It was a blank canvas. We wanted low maintenance, usable and child friendly. We added the wrap around conservatory in 2002 designed to mirror the dining room bandstand window. Along with the addition of the rotating wood burning stove it is one of the best decisions we made. The room is comfortable all year round. A flexible space that has been a playroom for our two girls and more recently a comfortable space for our teenagers to hang out together with their friends rather than them disappearing off to their bedrooms. It offers indoor garden dining during inclement weather and comes into its own for family garden parties and celebrations. Opening presents on Christmas morning in front of the log fire is a special family moment and will be memories we treasure.
My husband built my bespoke garden writing shed for my 50th birthday present. It was based on Weston Surman and Dean Architecture Limited's 2013 award winning design. It is cool in summer and warm in winter. I added a sedum roof which attracts pollinators and adds interest all year round.
The garden is designed to make the most of the South-East aspect with seating areas and decks designed to maximise the sun and shade from sunrise to sunset. This house has a fantastic downstairs footprint where we do most of our living. All the rooms are well used. They have inbuilt ceiling speakers, the TV room has a cinema system and the garden its own outdoor sound system.
We moved to Barlborough from Sheffield. It offered us the room, community facilities and green space to bring up our family - schools, shopping, local clubs and groups while on the doorstep of the Peak District National Park and 25 minutes from our friends and family in Sheffield.
We have been actively involved in the Barlborough community while raising our children. This includes the renovation of the derelict 'Little School' community building and the Country Park which is a few doors down from our house. Slayley Green which runs through the middle of the housing development and the Country Park offer safe green spaces for children to play independently close to home as ours have done growing up.
After 21 years it is time for us to move on. Our house and garden are ready for another family to start making memories here.
