I just took a refreshing tour of spectacular swimming pools from Sydney to Moscow in the latest issue of Houzz. These 15 swimming pools with dream views are amazing, with breathtaking views, inspiring design, and gorgeous landscapes. Here are two of my favorites:
Relaxed Beach Life in Australia
Location: Palm Beach, New South Wales, Australia
Who swims here: A businessman who uses it as a weekend home
Built on a hilltop overlooking Australia’s iconic Palm Beach, this weekend home has ocean views that are hard to beat. To minimize the view of the pool structure from the beach, the designers added a garden bed on the hill below. Having a wet edge on the pool meant they didn’t need to install a view-blocking fence. They built a wood-framed day bed with a bamboo awning next to the pool to give the homeowners a shaded place for relaxing at the end of a swim.
Inspiration for a Painter on the Spanish Coast
Location: Jávea, Alicante province, Spain
Who swims here: Friends of the architect
This sun-washed house in Jávea, on the east coast of Spain, was designed around the site’s beautiful sea views. The hillside house opens up to the infinity pool and patio, which sit high above a turquoise cove on the Mediterranean Sea. Pines, lemon trees and aromatic plants encircle the property.
It’s always nice to see what architects around the world are doing to highlight the beauty of Mother Nature. Those of us fortunate to call Montecito home don’t have to travel far to enjoy spectacular swimming pools with dream views.
