Orangeries are becoming more popular as they really bring something different to a property. Modern orangeries are no longer extravagant greenhouses used for growing fruit and plants that are more exotic and native to sunnier climates. They are now becoming a very elegant addition to your property and an integral part of your home enabling light to flow through the lantern shaped roof and large tall windows while linking your home and garden all year round. Orangeries in Essex usually have side walls constructed from stone or hardwood.
An orangery or orangeries is a building in the grounds of fashionable residences. The orangery is similar to a greenhouse or conservatory.
