Enjoy the last weeks of warm weather with these amazing properties for summer entertaining

We’ve rounded-up Winkworth’s best properties for summer entertaining, no matter what the unpredictable British weather throws our way.

As we reach the tail-end of August, with the potential for an Indian Summer on the cards, we’re looking to squeeze the most out of the remaining weeks of warmer weather with a spot of summer entertaining. From BBQs to sunset soirées, it helps to have a property that will do some of the legwork when hosting. Winkworth has an extensive range of properties that have everything from bar areas and BBQ terraces to al fresco dining spaces and superior kitchens.

Having such a feature is a huge draw for potential buyers. Angela Ramsey, Associate Regional Partner at Winkworth Lewes says that since it’s so rare in London, “outside space is a hugely sought after commodity for buyers, and most certainly adds value to a property.”

“We have many buyers coming out of London for a better quality of life and many of our houses are sold because a seller has had the forethought - or we have advised them - to put as much energy into landscaping their gardens and making it a wonderful place for entertaining as they do their internal refurbishments,” Angela continues.

With that in mind, we’ve rounded-up Winkworth’s best properties for late summer entertaining, no matter what the unpredictable British weather throws our way.
