A Greek Retreat

This Grecian-style pool features iconic reverse corners to create an elevated old-world appearance. It also features numerous modifications and additions, making it an over-the-top, opulent outdoor escape. From the expansive sun shelf with bubblers and umbrella support to dual spillways, the water flow sound effects help surround the space with a relaxing ambiance. A rectangular spa features blue cut-glass tiles on its face, under its spillway. Directly across from the spa is a raised water feature which produces the second spillway, boasts the same cut-glass tile facing, and even incorporates a firebox across the length of its top. Combined with the underwater, colored LED lights, this fire feature amplifies the area’s visual interest at night. Heated, self-cleaning, and wrapped by an ivory travertine tile decking, this pool area is a truly decadent retreat.
