Elevated Oasis

Surrounded by lush greenery, this pool feels like it’s in a tree house. A 10-foot-tall retaining wall creates this effect, as the pool was built to be level with the home. Natural stone surrounds the pool, providing durable decking along with an earthy, natural aesthetic. An interior spa with a spillover waterfall, framed in blue tile and tucked into a corner of the pool, provides a spot for maximum relaxation. The rectangular pool boasts several convenient features like self-cleaning, an automatic cover, LED lighting, and automated controls. Adding visual interest, an inlaid tile mosaic of a mermaid monogram graces the bottom of the six-foot deep pool. Nearby, an outdoor kitchen and cozy seating area, complete with a television and outdoor shower, round out this outdoor oasis.
