A Greek Retreat

Outdoor Space


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 helps encircle the space with a relaxing ambi­ance. A rectangular spa features blue cut-glass tiles on its face, surrounding 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.
