Get Inspired with These Lavish Pools
Do you want to add a pool to your house, but aren’t sure what you want it to look like? This is a good time to get inspired by some of the world’s most lavish pools. Of course, you might not have the budget to replicate Hearst Castle’s magnificent water feature, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t inspiring to look at! Join us on a tour of pools that would impress even royalty.
The Kitchukov family pool is often described as America’s Poshest Private Pool, and it’s easy to see why! This pool is ten times the size of a normal pool, and took construction crews nearly 5 months to complete. It comes with giant boulders, water fountains, and a 15-foot waterslide. Tired of the pool? Head on over to the skatepark or putting green that are also located in this magnificent backyard.
Are you ready to rock? This incredible underground oasis has multiple entries at varying depths, unbelievable stonework around the walls, and trendy pink lighting. In the back, there’s an unusual lounge area with waterfalls cascading into the center, creating an unforgettable centerpiece for enjoying a drink or two.
This $9.5 million dollar house in Malibu uses 235,000 gallons of water to hydrate its many features. There’s a huge saltwater swimming pool, a rooftop reflection pool, and even koi and turtle ponds. In addition, a garden with over 1,000 species of plants is impressive on its own merit.
Nothing at Hearst Castle is less than opulent. The grounds have both an indoor and an outdoor pool, but it’s the outdoor pool that’s featured here. We particularly like the tile work on the floor, as well as the huge granite columns and arches. Taking a dip here must feel like swimming in the main square of ancient Rome.
Of course, most normal working families won’t be able to build on this grand of a scale, but a pool of any size can add a similar element of charm, value, fun, and whimsy to your home.
