It's a fairly modern property so I don't think that a heritage colour would work.Would white look odd?
I'd use a brownish 'shed and fence' treatment. Outdoor timber is very prone to water damage and rot. Cuprinol make some spirit based preservative stains, work it well into the joints.The water-based fence stains do not protect against rot.Your gate will expand and contract a lot with the weather, so paint will crack.
Agreed, our previous house was modern and we painted/stained it a deep brown (cuprinol, maybe called teak). In this house, which is much older and we used a lighter oak colour. Both looked fab and we repaint every 3 years.
