Glorious Gardens


The quality synonymous with an Octagon home goes beyond bricks and mortar. The company also champion first-class exterior design, surrounding their luxury homes with immaculate landscaping, which includes lavish mature planting and show stopping design features.

A prime example is Cavendish House, Octagon’s latest super mansion located in a leafy North London suburb. As well as having an exquisite, timeless façade and a top interior specification, the property is set in 3 acres of extensive and undulating grounds, which have been transformed into a spectacular garden by Chelsea award-winning landscape architect Cowley White, with focal point waterfall stepped cascade stealing the show. Particularly stunning at night, the cascade is designed to introduce a strong feature visibly linking the lower entertaining terraces with the main lawns above, whilst bringing sound and life to the garden and into the house.  Another strong feature is the outdoor fireplace, which has gas fired logs, situated in a secluded and sheltered corner of the rear terrace, which can be used as an outdoor sitting room throughout the year.

Other Octagon homes for sale with the alfresco edge include Saddle Stones, a picture perfect property with over 1 acre of beautifully landscaped grounds- owners can enjoy an outdoor swimming pool with feature fountains, a chic patio space, delightful gazebo and stylish summerhouse- and Falconwood House, where a jaw-dropping infinity pool offers exceptional views overlooking the exclusive St George’s Hill golf course.

Tony Taylor, Octagon’s Senior Designer, comments: “We have been landscaping our gardens since the company began 36 years ago. We have always taken great pride in our exterior design, and that includes the gardens, making sure that it is on par with the high specification and finish of the house and its interior. As many of our clients are well-travelled, we often take influence from Mediterranean planting, and, taking the inside outside, creating a stylish ‘outdoor room’ which has a luxurious, holiday feel, often reminding buyers of their second home, perhaps in the South of France or California.”
