Why head to a country club this summer when you could have a private pool right in your Westchester backyard?
There is a serene luxury in being able to step out of one’s house and immediately into a private in-ground swimming pool. These homes for sale are gorgeous on their own, but looking at the showstopping pools that come with them, it’s hard not to want to cannonball right into the Zillow listing.

Complete with an outdoor cabana, a summer kitchen, bar, and full bath, the only reason you’ll ever leave is the change of season (and even then, it’s a toss-up).

While this pool needs absolutely no explanation, it does have a lovely story. The homeowner has been playing the violin from a young age and is an engineer and mathematician by trade, making this stunning pool a confluence of two passions. While training for a triathlon, the owner became interested in adding a lap pool to the home. When surveying the land for a pool began, they realized the calculations were like that of a violin, thus inspiring the idea of creating a violin-shaped pool. An award-winning design-and-architectural firm was brought in to execute this vision and complete the project. Features include glass tiles on the bottom, underwater audio, programmed lighting patterns, two koi ponds, and a river-flow system into the pool.
