Garden office becomes key selling point for househunters

A new study by Rightmove shows how homebuyers' list of sought-after features has changed over the last decade. To cut to the chase, it's thumbs up for garden offices (and orangeries, summer houses, and bi-fold doors) and thumbs down for conservatories. Here's the full rundown:

"Our findings show that as working patterns have changed, optimising the space in our homes is more important than ever," said a spokesman for Rightmove. "Features like an outdoor office space have soared as working patterns have changed. The proportion of property listings that mention them now 11 times higher than a decade ago. And we aren’t talking a shed with a desk in it here. Many of the homes with garden offices currently for sale come fully equipped with mains electric, their own air-conditioning systems, and of course, wi-fi."
