How Desirable is a House With a South Facing Garden in Teddington?

Does your home in Teddington have a south-facing garden?

Buyers are attracted to a south-facing garden for many reasons. While the value they add to your home may be negligible in the grand scheme of things, having a south facing garden is a top selling point that can create interest.

If you have a south-facing garden, here is our view at Newman Property Experts about how desirable a house with a south-facing exterior is to buyers in Teddington.

What is a South-Facing Garden?

The clue is in the name, but a south-facing garden faces south! Normally, this means the back of your house faces towards the south pole. Many estate agents will market a home as south-facing even if it points southwest or southeast, depending on the exact position of your home.

You can usually tell if your house is south-facing if you have the sunlight in your back garden all day long or if a compass points south when you are in the garden. But, to know for sure, invite an estate agent round for a free valuation. They’ll be able to tell you whether it’s classed as south facing and, if it is, how much value it could add to your property.

Is a South Facing Garden More Desirable For Teddington Buyers?

A house with a south-facing garden has many benefits and it’s certainly an attractive and desirable feature for many buyers in the Teddington area.

While a south-facing garden doesn’t necessarily add value to your home, it’s a great selling point that can make your home more attractive and sell quicker, particularly since homes with a south-facing garden provide benefits like:

  • More sunlight in the garden all day Perfect for sunbathing and kids playing outside
  • Opportunities for plants and vegetables With more warmth and sunlight all year round, you have more opportunities to grow vegetables and maintain exotic garden plants
  • Warmer garden and back-end of home Naturally, the garden is warmer with a south-facing garden, and the back part of your home will stay warmer, too
  • Better for drying clothes on the washing line More sunlight means quicker air-drying times, which is perfect if your home doesn’t have space for a tumble dryer
  • Patios stay cleaner and require less jet washing Ideal for any buyers looking for a low-maintenance home
