6 of the Best...Homes with training facilities

Facilities such as an at-home gym, swimming pool or tennis court have long been key requirements for professional sportsmen and women looking to train in their own environment, as well as those seeking sports amenities for recreational purposes.

However, with health and fitness clubs temporarily closed for periods over the past year, increasingly buyers have sought to be able to access state-of-the-art equipment and facilities from their own home. And while recent measures have seen the reopening of sporting sites in England and Scotland, with indoor sites opening in Wales soon, many of our agents operating in high value markets have noted a significant uplift in those searching for properties which provide extensive living and leisure accommodation, both in cities and the country.

Meanwhile new-build schemes with on-site gyms, pools and spas are expected to remain popular and are now regarded by buyers as an integral part of the overall offering within a development.

Today it's not uncommon to come across the likes of dedicated yoga rooms, multi-purpose AstroTurf pitches and even golf simulators or par 3 courses forming part of residential properties across the country. Here's our pick of the best on the market.
