Buying a plot of land and building a house and garden on your own residential plot is a lot simpler than finding a property with a building and a garden which is exactly to your taste - and you can have as large an acerage as you wish. Land agents specialise in building land. One must search with an imaginative eye for development possibilities. Sometimes they are found in the mountains, in farmland and in woodland.
Land can also be good investment.
Look to the Rose that blows about us "Lo, "Laughing," she says,"into the World I blow: "At once the silken Tassel of my Purse "Tear, and its Treasure on the Garden throw."
