At Kirkwood, we know that for many clients searching for their ideal home that a usable garden space is equally important - and certainly features highly on their ‘wish-list’.
While early risers may lean towards homes with east facing rear gardens to make the most of the morning and afternoon sun, north and west-facing gardens can offer afternoon and evening sun, which can be a more practical orientation for those returning from a day at work.
However many people would prefer a rear garden facing southwards to enjoy the sun throughout the day. To inspire these people, we've shared 4 of our superb homes currently for sale at developments across Aberdeen city and shire, all with desirable south-facing rear gardens…
