The Best Waterside Properties on the Market

Pinewood House, Surrey
Pinewood House

A spectacular mansion of ambassadorial proportions, Pinewood House will wow even the most discerning party guest. Perched atop a hilltop with commanding views towards London, the Grade II listed mansion is surrounded by landscaped gardens perfect for an outdoor barbecue, and with a heated swimming pool – it’s the ideal spot for when summer’s inevitable heat wave hits. And if any of your guests happen to be arriving by helicopter, Pinewood House’s helicopter pad has it covered. Available through Savills for £14.5m

Rush Grove House, Woolwich

Rush Grove House

Set within 3 acres of landscaped gardens, this 6-bedroom house offers brilliant space to set up a grand marquee for a large-scale party. Accessed via electric gates, the home’s stunning gardens lead down to its very own large fishing lake. Of course, boasting gorgeous interior details like charming tiled floors, corniced ceilings and hardwood floors, you won’t mind guests peeping indoors as well. Available through Fine & Country for £2.75m

Cromwell House, Peterborough

Cromwell House

Picture perfect, this beautiful double-fronted period stone village house is a perfect setting for an elegant garden party to remember. Just like its wisteria-laden facade, Cromwell House’s gardens are equally delightfully; partially walled with formal lawns, box hedging and fruit trees, along with a charming running stream, the south facing gardens (which comprise almost an acre) appear as if lifted from a storybook. Available through Savills for £1.45m

Curlew Point, Devon

Curlew Point, Kingsbridge, Devon

Enjoying direct water access and moorings, Curlew Point takes your garden party up a notch. Youngins can play on the beach while adults watch on with cocktails in hand and canapés served on top of the old lime kiln. And when the fickle UK summer takes an inevitable turn for the worse, you can head inside where floor-to-ceiling windows and high ceilings let you at least partially immerse yourself in nature no matter the weather. Available through Marchand Petit for £3.25m

10 Properties with Tennis Courts

Kestrels, Wiltshire

Kestrels, Wiltshire

The Queen Anne facade of this 18th century Georgian masterpiece opens up into a home of exquisite detailing and period features, but the real piéce de rèsistance lies beyond its walls. Surrounding the house are beautifully laid out formal gardens comprised of a circular central pond, low walled garden to the front with climbing wisteria, box hedging and a rustic path featuring flower beds and mature trees. Simply put, a fantastic setting to host a summer bash your guests won’t soon forget. Available through Hamptons for £1.75m

Ashwan, Surrey

Ashwan, Christchurch Road

Any garden party hosted in Ashwan will be one to remember. With features including marble flooring, sweeping staircases and an incredible facade, this 10-bedroom house, or rather mansion, is spectacularly grand. Most of the receptions rooms offer direct access onto extensive terraces and rear gardens with mature hedging and shrub borders providing privacy from surrounding properties. The self-contained annex includes a ‘party’ kitchen for entertaining which allows for ease of hosting (we can use all the help we can get!) Available through Winkworth for £15.95m

Castelnau, Barnes

Castelnau, £5,500,000, Barnes, Knight Frank (9)

Throwing a garden party in the city can be difficult if you don’t have the right space, but this Castelnau property gives country estates a run for their money. Expertly designed with a flow conducive to entertaining, the home’s lower ground floor is flooded with natural light thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows that open up to a patio seating area and steps leading up to the lawn featuring a bucolic blend of mature trees, shrubs and plants framing the garden. Available through Knight Frank for £5.5m

Pharaoh’s Island, Surrey

Pharaoh's Island, Shepperton

For a garden party with a difference, invite your guests to your own private island. Enchantingly, Pharaoh’s Island can only be accessed by boat – friends and family will love the novelty.
