Poolscapes was recently chosen to have a featured pool in the Home Design Decor Magazine, for a uniquely awesome pool we built in Central Austin. Main features included a massive zen wall, an all-tile pool interior, floating steps, and a one-of-a-kind indoor entrance which allows you to exit the house underwater within the pool.
Imagine walking downstairs in a swimsuit, stepping your bare feet into a pool of water and swimming beneath the wall of glass separating the indoors from the outdoors. It’s an architectural reality for a professional couple living in a spectacular modern oasis in the middle of bustling Central Austin.
For a couple used to living on the lake, moving to the city didn’t require sacrificing water views. And of all of the home’s exceptional details, it’s the ability to swim outside without ever opening the door that remains the most spectacular.
“You can get up from your living room chair and walk over to the stairs and you are in the pool,” says Smith who couldn’t resist experiencing the sensation for himself one day right before the home was complete. “I can’t describe it. It’s just fantastic.”
