The perks of living in a home with a swimming pool

As the weather has finally improved and the summer solstice is fast approaching, now is the perfect time to soak up the longer summer days.

We take a look at some of the best properties with swimming pools that are currently on the sales and lettings markets and explain their enduring appeal.

Not only do swimming pools provide a place to exercise for all the family, they are a tranquil place to read, meditate and sunbathe. Moreover, as Rhys Williams, Sales Manager of Winkworth in Milford On Sea explains, they’re a lifestyle choice, not only a feature:

“A swimming pool acts as the centre piece of any gathering or party held at the property and can be enjoyed to its fullest during these wonderful summer months by all the family.”

Moreover, swimming pools can be a huge draw for prospective buyers. If you’re looking to sell and your home comes with a swimming pool, you must make sure that it’s uncovered, heated and clean so you can really show it off to it’s full potential, says Rhys:

“A swimming pool is a unique selling point for many homes, especially when coming up against similar properties on the market without a pool. It will often be above and beyond a buyer’s criteria and give you the upper hand in the sale.”
