Escape to the outdoors with Hill


With the recent UK lockdown, and restrictions gradually starting to ease, having a garden or outdoor space has taken on greater importance for many homeowners across the country over this time.

Whether it’s a balcony, terrace, or a family-sized garden that you’re looking to escape to, at Hill we work carefully with architects and our design teams to provide something to suit everyone’s lifestyle and taste.

Intrigued to know what is available? Here is a selection of some of our favourite outdoor spaces.

Dine alfresco on your own roof terrace at Mosaics

Our five-bedroom Bayswater Villa homes at Mosaics are spread across three floors, with the top floor opening out to a large terrace area, which is the ideal space for sipping on a glass of wine or a G&T on a summer evening. There’s even room for loungers for the sun seekers amongst us and a seating area for those who like to dine alfresco. The homes also benefit from large open plan kitchen and dining rooms, zoned off snugs, master bedrooms with dressing areas and en-suites and living rooms. Some of the Baywater Villas also have annexes which include another living space, shower room and kitchen.


Family time in the garden at The Orchards

Our collection of houses and bungalows at The Orchards in the village of Great Abington benefit from secluded courtyard areas, landscaped spaces and views of the surrounding open countryside, as well as large gardens for all the family to enjoy. There are currently just two modern bungalows available at The Orchards, which feature stylish, open plan living spaces that lead out to the garden.

Relax with a good book on your balcony at Fish Island Village

Located along the Hertford Union Canal, our Fish Island Village development in Hackney Wick has plenty of routes to explore by foot or by bike. However, if you’d prefer to curl up with a good book on a summer’s evening, the private balconies available with a number of our apartments make the perfect spot for that – as one of our residents recently displayed (see left).

In June, look out for the launch of our final phase at Fish Island Village, which will include a selection of one and two-bedroom apartments that have been designed to embrace outdoor living.

Every apartment boasts its own outside space in the form of a private balcony and residents will also have access to a beautifully landscaped internal courtyard garden.


Enjoy some calm within this courtyard garden at Athena

Our Athena development in Eddington, Cambridge, has an array of different house types from one-bedroom apartments through to three storey townhouses. Our Annex house type opens up from the stylish kitchen into this striking walled courtyard garden that provides plenty of space for an outside dining table, soft seating area and even an outdoor firepit. On a sunny day you could work from here, or if you prefer to keep work and play separate, these homes also have dedicated studies.


Our marketing suites and show homes are now open for pre-booked appointments so do get in touch with our sales teams if you would like to view any of our developments in person. Our virtual tours are also still available, with more information on how to register for one available here.
