Under garden basements add significant value to your property. Ensoul has delivered more than 2x return on investment for under garden basements in terms of basement cost vs the uplift in property valuation. But aside from adding serious amounts of floorspace and value, here are 5 reasons to go under your garden instead, or as well as under your house.
For those with a big garden or driveway who are thinking about a house extension, we recommend you consider an under garden basement or under driveway basement. Dig deep to get a high ceiling; put light-wells and roof lights in and you have an incredible space that feels just as good, if not better than your accommodation upstairs.
Cinema rooms, playrooms, games rooms, wine cellars, gyms, saunas, swimming pools, nanny, granny and teenage flats are just some of the ways we are seeing under garden basements being used.

And check back later as we’re writing a 2nd chapter on once we obtain planning approval, we technically design, build and fit out under garden basements.
Ensoul Interior Architecture offers a rare combination of specialist talent and experience in what we see as the four pillars to success: architectural and technical design, interior design, project management and procurement. Why work with us? If design is important to you and you’re looking for a contemporary home with every detail thought through from the inside out. If you’re looking to have your project professionally managed from end to end. And if you want something individual rather a stock solution. We are based on Wandsworth Common and take on a range of work, some includes significant extension work such as basements, side returns, rear extensions and loft conversions. And some are pure refurbishment projects with very little structural work. There is no minimum budget with us, but we are committed to delivering beautiful, design led work.
There are many potential pitfalls, so read our foolproof guide to bringing the project in on time, on budget and exceeding expectations. Words: Gillian Upton. ... Read Feature
