Have you considered buying a home with a swimming pool?

There are many things that we look for in a new home – location, a certain number of bedrooms, room sizes and the price. However there is one thing that perhaps you may not have considered is that you might want your new home to have a swimming pool. With the heatwave and sunshine we have been having already this season, this is something that more UK homeowners might want to look into for their own home.

A swimming pool is social

When you have a swimming pool, it makes your home the ideal place to gather family and friends to make the most of the summer weather. Think BBQs and sunbathing by the pool and family time swimming, or you might prefer a quieter leisurely swim alone for exercise and relaxation. Your swimming pool can give you complete use of your outdoor space, especially where you have a large area of land that you can use.

A holiday home from home

Buying a house with a swimming pool can make your house a holiday home from home. You can enjoy the weather at home and relax by the poolside just as if you were abroad with your stunning surrounding views, and you might be surprised to learn that there are actually a number of new houses for sale in Surrey within swimming pools.

Your pool is a feature

When compared to other houses for sale in Guildford, Haslemere and Surrey, homes which boast a swimming pool offer even greater character as the pool itself becomes a feature in itself. It broadens the use of your outside space by creating a whole area around the pool that both looks beautiful and provides an oasis for exercise, relaxation and enjoyment.

Other considerations

Other considerations if you’re looking at new property for sale in Surrey with swimming pools is the pool size and features that it has – the style should suit what you are looking for and be able to be adapted if you wish to add features like steps for example.

It is worth checking with the Estate Agent that the pool has been built to safety standards and what the expected maintenance costs and expectations are. You should also be able to find out when the pool was built and think about how you might want to use the surrounding area.
