The modern orangery is an extension of your living space that suits not only traditional properties but makes a fabulous addition to any home.
Orangeries were once a symbol of prestige and wealth, built on to the residences of the very wealthy in a bid to protect their fruit trees during the colder months and have their modern roots in 17th century Holland.
Our orangeries come in a range of traditional and contemporary designs to suit your home. With each of our orangeries, you will find impressively high ceilings to maximise space, thick pillars that provide both grandeur and privacy whilst its glazed roof lantern provides unparalleled natural light and sky views..

Frequently Asked Questions
What is an orangery?
An orangery has a solid flat roof with one or more glazed lantern roofs. Orangeries will quite often feature brick columns although it is the combination of the flat roof and lanterns that is the defining factor.
Does an orangery require planning permission?
An orangery will not always require planning permission - it may be exempt under Permitted Development rules. To find out if this would apply for adding an orangery to your home, speak to the planning officer in the building control department of your local council.
Will an orangery add value to my home?
Yes an orangery will add value to your home as it will not only add valuable extra living space, but an orangery is also a highly desirable home improvement. The amount of value it will add to your home will depend on a large number of factors such as the area you live in, your existing home, and the style and specification of orangery.
How long does it take to build an orangery?
The biggest factor in determining how long an orangery will take to build is the base work. The time to create an orangery base can vary dependent on the ground conditions and whether piled foundations are needed. Once the base is completed, an orangery should be able to be built within just a couple of weeks.
Can my orangery have bi-folding doors?
Yes an orangery can have bi-fold doors. In fact, orangeries with bi-fold doors have become very popular over recent years and are a great option for a modern orangery.
Does an orangery suit a modern house design?
There are many orangery options which can be added to an orangery design so that it suits a modern home. These include flat cornices or parapet features externally to give strong, clean lines, as well as bi-fold doors. The colour of an orangery roof can also have a great bearing on whether it suits a modern home - anthracite grey is very popular right now for windows, doors and conservatory roofs and would be the perfect colour choice for a modern orangery.
What roof is on an orangery?
An orangery roof is a flat roof which has one or more lantern roof windows to bring light into the room below.
Are orangeries more expensive than conservatories?
It is difficult to say whether an orangery is more expensive than a conservatory as there are many options for both an orangery and a conservatory. For instance you may choose an orangery with a small lantern roof, or a conservatory with a solid tiled roof and the price could be very similar. High orangery prices would depend on the type of flat roof, the number and size of the lanterns and the amount of building work needed. High conservatory prices would depend on the amount of building work needed, whether the roof is glazed or solid/tiled and the spec of any glazing.
What is the price of a orangery for my home?
The cost of an orangery depends on many factors including the ground you are building on, the size of the orangery and the specification that you choose. For a guide price contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a free no-obligation quote.
