Some days ago Luxury Defined, the online magazine of Christie’s International Real Estate and Partner of Wüst und Wüst, published an article about nine extremely attractive homes with luxury indoor swimming pools around the globe. They write: “A luxury indoor pool might be the ultimate creature comfort. It offers a private, resort-style experience to its residents and supreme hospitality to its guests, whatever the weather.
The indoor pool comes in many styles: For the serious swimmer, a resistance pool or lap pool builds strength, stamina, and flexibility. For the rest of us, all-weather amenities—spas, waterfalls, even fireplaces—make it a perfect place to relax, reflect, or entertain.”
Luxury Defined offers a dip in nine enchanting in-home pools akin to those in the world’s great hotels. So, go ahead and indulge yourself. Jump right in!
