Discover Dream Properties with Pools or Overlooking Water

Imagine a luxurious property with a stunning, large swimming pool or breathtaking sea view, a place where you can escape the bustle of daily life and enjoy the tranquillity of nature.

You do not need to venture outside the UK to purchase a home that offers coastal vistas or a private swimming pool. There is an exciting selection of luxury property for sale in the South Hams in Devon, offering a perfect oasis for relaxation.


The Health and Lifestyle Benefits of Living by the Sea or Having a Swimming Pool

Anyone fortunate enough to reside near water will be exposed to what is known as blue space. If you are at the seaside, you will benefit from the immune-boosting properties of an ocean breeze and breathe cleaner air. In addition, any body of water is an invitation to spend more time outdoors, which usually goes with summer sunshine, an excellent source of vitamin D. Those living near water or with swimming pools are also far more inclined to be physically active and enjoy greater physical and emotional wellbeing.

The Wellbeing Benefits of Coastal Living

The allure of a seafront home is undeniable: waking up to the sound of waves against the shore, a morning stroll with your dog along the beach, or watching the sun rise or set. These homes provide an unparalleled sense of peace, quiet, and relaxation.

In addition to the glorious views and convenient beach access, homes by the sea offer an opportunity to embrace a healthier, more active lifestyle. From fishing, swimming, and water sports to beach yoga and long walks, the possibilities for physical activity and well-being are endless. This and the fresh coastal air also improve sleep quality.


The Advantages of Having a Private Swimming Pool

While an indoor swimming pool allows you to enjoy it year-round, a heated outdoor pool also extends the summer swimming season, providing enjoyment to you, your family, and your friends.

Swimming pools offer a variety of benefits, including exercise, entertainment, and time outdoors. Swimming is a low-impact activity that has numerous physical and mental health advantages, including increased stamina, strength, and flexibility and decreased stress and anxiety.


Increased Property Value and Attractiveness

Having a swimming pool or a waterfront view, particularly in a sought-after location such as the South Hams in Devon, can significantly increase the value of properties. When searching properties for sale, striking a balance between lifestyle and investment is crucial.

It is important to evaluate the features of the property that are essential to you, such as the views, layout, and location. Additionally, consider the potential return on investment, such as rental income potential or resale value. If you wish to live by the sea in Devon, making use of the professional services of a South Hams specialist Estate Agent is a must.


Making the Decision: Balancing Lifestyle and Investment

As you consider purchasing a house with a swimming pool, it's important to weigh the benefits and drawbacks. While owning a luxury home provides an enjoyable and tranquil lifestyle, pools come with responsibilities and costs for maintenance.

By considering the lifestyle benefits, investment potential, and maintenance responsibilities of owning a pool, spa, or waterfront home, you can make an informed decision that best suits your needs and preferences.
