Owning a property with a swimming pool might seem like one of life’s luxuries that is reserved for millionaires.
But, as our pick of homes for sale with swimming pools proves, you don’t have to have a multi-million pound property to have one.
That said, you may still need deep pockets for their upkeep, which can be costly, particularly if you want to keep your swimming pool heated to a comfortable temperature.
While water shortages and hosepipe bans are hitting the headlines, a pool that is already filled with water will not draw on resources but may be forbidden from being topped up by hosepipe in the case of a ban.

Daniel Copley, of Zoopla, said: ‘With Britain currently experiencing a heatwave, it’s no surprise that homes with swimming pools are proving to be increasingly popular.
‘Whether your budget is more in the deep or shallow end, some homes with pools may be more affordable than you think.
‘While the rise in energy bills will have a very real impact on those wanting to heat a pool, at this time of year a refreshing dip may be just what’s needed.’
