Traditional Swimming Pool is Elegant, Relaxing
At the center of this luxurious private estate garden is a relaxing swimming pool, which features a sun shelf and an attached spa surrounded by bullnosed limestone coping and dimensional limestone paving. The stone pool terrace is lined with boxwood hedges to balance the soft textures of the trees and flowering shrubs. A custom timber beam pergola is anchored by stone piers and a low stone wall that defines the terrace space.
Outdoor lights strung across the backyard of this stately home give the space its "wow factor" and add a festive ambiance. Ample windows and terraces connect the house to the backyard and brings the indoor and outdoor spaces together.
One of the house's main outdoor entertaining areas is the elegant swimming pool and spa. An open pavilion provides an outdoor dining area, while sleek pool chairs are the perfect spot to relax. Travertine stone is used around the pool to reflect the materials of the main house.
Large Swimming Pool With Hot Tub and Lava Rock Fire Pit
This large swimming pool with water jets includes a built-in hot tub and lava rock fire pit for the ultimate in outdoor relaxing. A nearby lounging area with diagonally set pavers complements the yard's striking geometric design, while verdant grass and white rose borders pop against the glittering blue water.
Flanked by two Grecian-style statues, the spa in the pool and surrounding tanning area feels downright regal. Shallow semi-circles with bubbling fountains offer peaceful ambient sound and are the perfect spot to cool off without completely submerging.
Classic White Poolhouse and Gray Stone Swimming Pool Deck
This poolhouse is located on a lower terrace behind the main home at the basement level. The property's natural slope presented a design challenge, but it also allowed for a large rear terrace. The adjacent pool features large gray flagstones.
Traditional Pool With Poolhouse and Twinkly Outdoor Lighting
Strands of outdoor lights cross over the pool in this traditional backyard, giving the space an ethereal quality and inviting nights of outdoor entertaining. A cozy conversation area includes plush seating and a table that does double-duty for dining or cocktails.
This Newport Beach, Calif., backyard has sweeping views of the coast and Pacific Ocean. The linear swimming pool pairs with a sleek hot tub and flagstone walkway for an inviting, relaxing outdoor space. Flower beds are full of beautiful plants, shrubs and trees and highlight the lush green lawn.
The designers incorporated this backyard pool into the surrounding rural landscape by bordering it on three sides with grass and planting wildflowers in a poolside garden. A rustic fence adds farmhouse-style charm. Meanwhile, a pool house sits on the other side of the patio.
Inspired by the Louisiana architecture of A. Hays Town, this project replicates a Louisiana courtyard in the midst of this creekside estate. A pool is the centerpiece of the design and is anchored by an antique brick-clad spa. Boxwood hedges, ferns and azaleas add life to the space.
