I thought I'd do a post to make you all dream.
This old glass house is next to one of the fields I rent and I dream about what I'd do with it if it was mine every time I walk past it!
It's beautiful with a brick base and a hardwood timber frame on top. Most of the glass is now gone but you can tell it was a good one and much cared for in it's day. There's even a pit where the boiler used to live to heat it in winter and on cold nights.
It's split into two, in the top section you can still see an old grape vine and a large peach tree growing up the one side and the bottom end was apparently used to raise seedlings for the kitchen garden (all for the big house).
Some of the metal work in there is amazingly ornate and it's a real shame that it's all rusting away slowly.
If I had about a year and a large budget I'd love to get this listed old glasshouse back into working order and fill it with plants.
Don't get me wrong, I still love my two aluminium greenhouses and I'm sure they involve a whole lot less maintenance!
What would you do with an old glasshouse like this?
