At some point in our lives, we have all dreamed of owning a house with pool. At the end of the day, this is a feature that not only adds value and exclusivity to any home, but it's also synonymous with fun, relaxation and leisure during the hot summer months. This why we at Engel & Völkers, the leading real estate company in the luxury sector in Barcelona, want to tell you about all the advantages you can enjoy if you buy a property with a swimming pool. We will also let you know about some of the available properties we have in 'stock'.
Advantages of owning a house with pool
The first thing that comes to mind is that by having a pool in the garden of your home, you will have a very desirable place to spend many hours during summer. In fact, it will be synonymous with privacy and freedom since you will not have to go out in order to enjoy a swim or sunbathe. You can also place hammocks, deckchairs, umbrellas or slides in your own garden if you wish.
A pool inside a house also automatically becomes a meeting point for the whole family, where it is possible to enjoy a swim with your children and friends. Those who already have an indoor pool know how relaxing it is to get home from work and enjoy a swim.
Pools are also a constant invitation to exercise. Pools allow you to swim and play in a thousand ways with your partner, friends and your children. Special mention deserves to go to those pools that are heated since they can be used throughout the year. We should not forget that these pools play a decorative function within the garden and that they invite the placement of a greater number of plants within the home.
Generally speaking, swimming pools located in luxury properties are usually accompanied by a jacuzzi and whirlpool area. This is mainly due to the fact that, once the installation is done, it is very easy to add this additional feature.
To all this we must add that a pool in a house is always a good investment. To get an idea, it is estimated that the value of a property can go up by between 10% and 15%.
