Conservatory perfect for relaxing

A house currently on the market comes with a conservatory that has been described as the ideal spot to take a breather from busy day-to-day life.

The Press and Journal included an article about Nether Unthank in Elgin, Scotland, which is up for sale.

It is set in an area of 0.81 acres and includes the conservatory which is "the perfect place to sit back and admire the garden grounds".

There are also double French doors fitted into the structure that lead outside.

Meanwhile, it was recently advised that consumers should consider the advantages and disadvantages of this type of property addition.

Homebuilding & Renovating magazine editor Jason Orme said care should be taken when it comes to design and construction, as problems have arisen in the past when this type of building overheats in summer yet under-heats in winter.

But these can be easily avoided by preparation and measures such as air-conditioning, he added.
