Gardens to savour on

Gardens to savour on

Earlier this week a rather interesting house went on the market in Dublin 18.

59 Beech Park Road in Foxrock is a fine property, no doubt, but what really sets it apart is its garden. After all, few houses can claim to have part of a garden that won a silver medal in the Chelsea Flower Show.

In 2005, Fiona Whooley persuaded husband Colm, who was at the time working with Sisk, to sponsor Diarmuid Gavin’s entry to the show – which became known as Hanover Quay Gardens.

After the win, the bulk of the gardens were moved to their new home at Hanover Quay – which was under construction by Sisk. One of the three tonne futuristic pods, superfluous to the Quay garden, made its way to Foxrock to become an unusual feature in the front garden of 59 Beech Park Road.

You can check out the property here but with it being spring, we decided to take a look at some of the other elegant gardens on offer at other for sale properties around the country at present.
