Yes, today is the last day of summer, but that doesn’t mean the hot weather is any closer to giving way to autumn temperatures. It’s time to muse on the best thing to have during a blistering Texas summer: a backyard swimming pool.
With the help of Ebby’s own Cody Baker, I present my personal top five swimming pools on the market today:
This pool is amazing. It has a lazy river without being too huge or imposing, and it has a great view of the lake, too. Sure, it doesn’t have a Wet N’ Wild feel, but this pool definitely feels like a great place to throw an end-of-summer bash.
The huge waterfall just outside the loggia, combined with the fountain inside the spa makes this pool a relaxing, resort-like escape!
Just look at how the sunset on the facade of the house contrasts with the dark cerulean waters. If that isn’t peaceful enough, the trickling noise of the waterfall and fountains will be!
The quatrefoil shape of the pool at 6 Lochleven is totally regal, but it’s the two fire pits and the fountains that bring all of the drama. Combined with the Monticello-looking home, this Richardson house is fit for a queen.
For something completely different, we round out our list with 6812 Hunters Glen in University Park. This pool is all about right angles and concrete, which is what you’ll find inside the home, too.
Did we miss a perfect pool? Tell us about it!
