Whether it's for having your breakfast alfresco or enjoying a glass of wine under the stars, balconies offer a little slice of the great outdoors from inside your property.
Balconies come in all shapes and sizes, from spacious ones with rooms for tables, to smaller and more compact offerings for socialising and relaxing. The Berkeley Group collection of properties is full of options that feature balconies that can give your home that extra touch for you and your visitors.
