celebrating the Summer by offering all Orangeries purchased before the end of
September £250 towards citrus trees and pots (Click here for more details). Orangeries are ideal for Cornwall
and the Cornish environment because they offer a space to experience the
outdoors without having to go out in the weather!
The history of the Orangery is intrinsically linked to the migration of the
sweet orange from its probable origins in Asia, over mainland Europe and eventually
reaching British shores in the Middle Ages.
The earliest Orangery in the UK dates back to about 1580, built for Sir
Francis Carew at his home in Surrey, with perhaps the most famous of all
Orangeries being at Kensington Palace (built 1704-5), and Kew (built 1761).
Unfortunately there is little information regarding when Orangeries first
appeared in Cornwall, but they are suited to the Cornish environment, and
modern Orangeries offer the perfect combination of extended outdoor living and
the strucutral insulation and practicality of an extension.
The Orangery faced a decline in the 19th and 20th Century, but are now
facing something of a revival because they offer an elegant and comfortable
solution to adding year round living space and also being one of the few home
improvements which adds value to your home, when done well, and in a considered
and thoughtful design that compliments an existing property.
If you have been thinking about extending your home or adding a
Conservatory, do think about an Orangery. They can be manufactured in the
traditional hardwood, and the developments of uPVC (or PVCu) means that it is
now possible to have an authentic Orangery constructed in a material that is
more durable and has lower maintenance obligations than wood.
