Tennis fan? You’ll love these ten smashing properties with tennis courts then…
There’s something so wonderful about the tennis season in England. Whether you are a fan or not, watching tennis is terribly therapeutic and fun, even if you aren’t watching from the Royal Box on Centre Court. So to celebrate the start of Wimbledon, here are ten properties to help you get inspired for Wimbledon. Just make sure you keep the lawns up to scratch. No wonky lines please.
1. Prospect Place, London
Not only is this house in Wimbledon, but it also has lawns to rival those of Centre Court, and a tennis court to boot. This Victorian grade II listed six-bed house is pretty impressive, especially considering it’s in London. Perfect for growing families and entertaining in the summer. Available through Knight Frank for £12.5m.
2. The Old Mill House, Oxfordshire
This beautiful family home is perfect for the summer. Equipped with a tennis court, extensive garden and swimming pool, entertaining the kids couldn’t be easier. The interiors could do with some modernising though. Available through Savills for £2.95m.
3. Miram House, Hadley Wood
Modern, high quality interiors and a tennis court – what more could you need? Miram House comprises six luxury apartments just 23 minutes from central London. If it’s ease you’re after, this is perfect and offers the best of both worlds. Available through Statons from £1.75m.
4. Kiln House, Berkshire
A wonderful home, Kiln House has room for all the family and an extra barn with potential. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the views aren’t bad either. The swimming pool and tennis court are great for inspiring any budding sports stars. Available through Richard Worth for £1.5m.

This stunning 17th Century farmhouse has everything you could want in a home. With full equestrian facilities, a tennis court, swimming pool, staff accommodation, a lovely garden, and stunning views, this property has it all. Available through Strutt & Parker for £5.25m.
6. Hurn Court, Christchurch
If you are a fan of Downton Abbey, you’ll love Hurn Court. This grand country home has been divided into wings over time and this principal wing includes four bedrooms, and two reception rooms. The large communal gardens include two tennis courts and beautiful views. Available through John D Wood & Co for £850,000.

Houses don’t get prettier than this. With seven bedrooms, oodles of charm and a further cottage, there’s plenty of space too. And if you fancy becoming the next Wimbledon champion, you can even practice your tennis on your own grass court. Available through Strutt & Parker for £945,000.
8. Poulston House, Totnes
This four-bed family home has lots of potential. With planning permission for three detached holiday homes, there’s plenty of development and expansion opportunities. The house is set within six acres, meaning there’s plenty of space, and a lovely tennis court and indoor swimming pool too. Available through Fulfords for £1.6m.
9. Hamstead Holt, Newbury
We love a beautiful family home with charm, and Hamstead Holt has buckets. The interiors have been updated elegantly, while still keeping the original 18th century features. With over 4 acres of land and a tennis court, there’s plenty of outdoor space too. Available through Jackson-Stops & Staff for £1.75m.
10. Gateway House, Berkshire
If you like a quirkier and more interesting country home, Gateway House is for you. Dating back to 1983, you have to take a look at the unusual features and the indoor pool… The stables and tennis court are an added bonus. Available through Winkworth for £2.5m.
