A traditional style swimming pool was the perfect solution for this sprawling country home at Kurrajong. The 12m x 4.5m pool is flanked by the home and landscaped garden with adjoining dam, and looks out over the expansive panoramic views.

The pool, which has 1m-1.8m depths, is fully tiled in blue hues, with natural stone used for coping and the large sundeck.

Spa jets have been installed in the ledge, designed to enhance the lap-swimming experience, and fine water sprays underneath the coping tiles keep them cooler in hot months.

To extend the season, solar heating was put in – the best solution given the aspect of the home and good solar access. Underwater lighting enables swimming during the darker hours and enhances the ambience of the pool at night.

Other equipment includes a pressure pool cleaner, automatic chlorinator system and cartridge filter with matching pump.
