Spring is around the corner with seven-spot ladybirds, daffodils and snowdrops emerging across the country. At Quealy & Co, your trusted estate agent in Kent, our attention is turning to gardening and planning what to do with our outdoor space.


Research by The Motley Fool found that adding a quality garden room is the best way to add value to a property, by an average of 5%. Most garden rooms can be built with full insulation, double glazing, electrical and internet connections for all year-round use, and all without the need for planning permission!

Recent Land Registry data shows the average price paid for a house in the UK is £312,415 and adding a garden room could potentially boost this by up to £15,600. With installations often costing around £10,000, it provides a fast return on investment and instantly makes the property more desirable.

With the median garden size across Great Britain of 188 square metres, a large garden room of only 16 square metres would add a valuable new room to your property whilst leaving plenty of space for an enjoyable garden.
