Can I have an Orangery Please?

An Orangery, similar to a green house or conservatory, is a room/structure that is a stand alone or attachment to an existing home that adds loads of sun through its ceiling windows.  You could find orangeries in the grounds of fashionable residences from the 17th to the 19th centuries across Europe where they would keep citrus trees.

When I lived in London I would see orangeries more frequently, but in the US I never see them and would love to.  They create an environment that feels very connected with the outside and provide a calm, scenic space to relax and enjoy.
