This property features a two-tiered infinity pool with a shallow area for lounging. A water slide drops from the upper level of the deck into the lower pool, and a pair of spas keeps the water temperate for year-round use.
The upstairs sundeck of this boathouse in Innisfil, ON, Canada is the perfect spot for a cocktail in the summertime. The sundeck is just off the gorgeous pool area and features sweeping, panoramic views of the lake.

The home was organized to take advantage of the southeastern winds that are drawn in over the pool, which cools them down, and through the sliding glass doors into the main level.
In the rear of this modern home contains a waterfall that separates the upper and lower levels of the entertainment space. On the upper level, two dining spaces, an outdoor kitchen and a bar give the homeowners tons of usable space, while the lower level contains a pool.
Neutral armchairs and a sleek fire pit create a comfortable sitting area on the upper terrace. With the swimming pool just down below, the owners can keep an eye out while the kiddos play in the water.
The landscape design of this extensive backyard involved creating separate areas for kids and grown-ups to explore. The pool neatly handled a big elevation change with a slide leading down from the upper level.
