This stunning pool and landscape combination is the latest project from award winning company Goldfish Pools & Landscapes. Precision in construction, and attention to detail is the philosophy at Goldfish Pools & Landscapes, which made us perfect for this project in every way.

This 11.0 x 5.0m, with 3.0 x 1.5m offset step area is the perfect family swimming pool, and along with the surrounding landscape and outdoor undercover alfresco living space, is a fine example of superb design and construction. With simple clean lines, this stunning creation influences and compliments the striking modern architecture of the home. The pool contains a wide beach entry that extends out into the water to create a shallow second step where children can safely play under the close supervision of their parents, extending through to a long under water shelf that runs between the spa and the pool steps providing a great space for family and friends to sit and relax in the heat of summer.

Further adding to the style and sophistication of this pool is an elevated wet-edge 2.5 x 2.5m spa that’s a feature in itself, with a black mosaic tiled interior and externally clad in black Granite tiles. The water slowly flows over the edge of the spa creating a sensual tranquil sound as it slips into the pool below. The spa includes eight multi-directional hydrotherapy venture spa jets, gas heating and an air floor-grid for ultimate relaxation therapy, and features an Aqualink automation control system with in-house control panel and spa side switch to ensure comfort level is always at its maximum.

The interior of this featured pool is fully tiled in white mosaic tiles to achieve the desired concept of a cool, crisp internal pool finish that shimmers invitingly in daylight and illuminates beautifully at night for the owners family and their guests.

To marry substance with style, the pool is fitted with all the extras in available in the market place for pool technology such as salt chlorination, automatic ph control, an in-floor cleaning & circulation system, solar & gas heating and underwater lighting. A water storage facility/tank means it is a self-reliant pool and is able to function without the use of mains water.

The sound of softly cascading water adds to the ambience of the new poolside outdoor space thanks to a narrow granite clad water wall positioned at the centre of the pool end, acting as a focal point built into the rear masonry rendered wall, and up-lit from within the pool for stunning views at night, can be viewed from both indoor and outdoor entertaining areas.

Surrounded by granite and polished concrete in-situ paving, raised planter box, pebbles, striking modern art and furniture, outdoor undercover alfresco entertaining structure to include the existing palm tree, the pool and surrounding landscape perfectly completes the amazing overall transformation of this property.
