In summer a house with a pool is a treasure. Although in these houses the pool is just the icing on the cake because its decoration and its history already make them unique. Let’s get in!
1. A SUMMER HOUSE TO ENJOY ALL YEAR ROUND
This house, located in Marbella, is perfect for any time of the year. Cozy, “contemporary, but with a fresh and Mediterranean style, very natural”, explains the interior designer Jean Pierre Martel, responsible for the renovation.
2. A COUNTRY HOUSE IN THE CITY, BUT WITH A POOL!
This house was built in 1830 by some farmers and Marta Tobella, interior designer and owner of Sacum. And in the reform, that bicentennial essence was maintained with the original clay floors. The jewel of this house is the patio, with a laundry room and the original wells.
3. A SWIMMING POOL TYPE
This patio was full of trees, at different levels, and with a stream. It was leveled, tiled and a pool was made with a porch behind it with the tools of the owner, who is very handy. Now it sports an incredible pool-style pool that we love.
4. A POOL INTEGRATED INTO THE SPECTACULAR LANDSCAPE
Bathing with sea views is a luxury. But if, in addition, the natural environment is as spectacular as the one that surrounds this house on the Costa Brava even more. Precisely to fully respect the exceptional environment, the pool was integrated into one of the exterior levels using the same landscape stones for the crown.
5. A CENTURY-OLD FARMHOUSE RECOVERED FROM OBLIVION
This house has had many lives, but the last one has regained its splendor. Starting with its generous garden, which the Lizarriturry Tuneu team, responsible for the reform, designed with native species and recovering the original trees of the plot. The large pool, with a sought after pool air, blends seamlessly into the landscape.
6. A POOL WITH A RESERVOIR VOCATION
This pool looks like it has its own Instagram filter. Nothing could be further from the truth, because its owner wanted the entire garden to be very green, including the pool. That’s why they made it out of green tile: it looks like a reservoir.
7. A SWIMMING POOL INSIDE THE HOUSE
Can you imagine a pool in the living room? In this house it is… or was. Because with the reform, and for the safety of the children who were still small, it was decided to separate it from the living room by means of large windows. Just open them and the pool becomes part of the living room.
8. AN OVERFLOWING POOL THAT MERGES WITH THE SEA
The exteriors of this house are one of its main attractions but by no means the only one. Because where we see it, this house, which is located in the Garraf natural park, has more than seven centuries of history. The spectacular views of the sea that it enjoys were key for the current owners to take risks with the reform, which lasted more than two years.
9. A POOL CONVERTED INTO AN IBIZAN AIR POOL
Looks are deceiving. And it is that this pool, which is so white it seems to be taken from a house in Ibiza, is in the Serranía de Ronda. And also, before the pool, it was a pool. The new owners of this farm also decided to transform it into a swimming pool and added the waterfall.
10. A TERRACE THAT IS THE HEART OF THE HOUSE
This house on the Costa Blanca is designed to be lived and enjoyed during the summer months. That is why the exterior has been taken care of to the maximum, with different areas of enjoyment for the whole family, children, and adults. The pool occupies the central part of the terrace, which has been designed with a very pleasant wooden floor.
