Originated from the Renaissance gardens of Italy, an orangery was a room on the grounds of fashionable residences from the 17th to the 19th centuries where orange and other fruit trees were protected during the winter. Today, like then, orangeries are made up from solid brick pillars, large glazed windows, brick or stone bases, a lantern roof and a corbel gutter, creating a parapet inside.
One big difference between an orangery and a conservatory is the amount of the structure that is glazed. A conservatory tends to have 75% or more glazing on the roof, and 50% on the walls whilst it is the opposite for orangeries.
Both will add value to your home and certainly make selling it far easier. It has been estimated that a conservatory/orangery will add as much as 10% to the value of your property.
