This sensational pool and spa combination designed by Digby Roberts and built by the team at Goldfish Pools & Landscapes, is a spectacular focal point of the outdoor living areas spread over a number of distinct split levels,
which was exactly what the homeowners requested.
The objective was to provide more open, functional and readily accessible outdoor entertaining areas, with the swimming pool & spa to be viewable from the house, taking into consideration the steep gradient of the property.
The lower level is dedicated to a 9m x 4m pool and spa, an outstanding example of intelligent design which optimises the available space and changes in level.
The pool and spa with its traditional lines has been fully tiled in dark-blue mosaic tiles. The spa includes six multi-directional hydrotherapy venturi spa jets with separate air controllers and boost pump, with an aerated floor grid, with three large benches to lounge on.
The owners requested a usable pool that is low maintenance. To achieve this an in-floor cleaning system was installed which eliminates the need to manually vacuum the pool, ensuring the owners can spend more time in the pool enjoying it rather than cleaning it; an automatic ph controller maintains the pH of the water, whilst the solar and gas heating and in house push button touchpad control system with spa side switch ensure the comfort level of the pool and spa is always at its maximum.
An extensive swim-out situated alongside the pool extends from the raised poolside stone clad planter along the west side of the pool and into the unobtrusively located step area to provide generous underwater seating and ample poolside lounging.
Surrounding the pool are large paving & decking spaces, giving the pool area a generous, open feel and creating highly practical usable areas. The landscape includes natural features such as 'Granite' poolside paving, cladding and steps, while the rich colour of the large format 'Merbau' poolside raised decks combined with charcoal batten screens and the lush green synthetic lawn and plantings create a special outdoor oasis.
Frameless glass pool fencing ensures seamless pool safety without inhibiting the view from the house and outdoor entertaining areas and compromising the beauty of the space.
At night, a different image is created as the pool glistens with LED pool lights and extensive strategic ambient landscape lighting illuminate the entire project, creating a stunning night time visual highlight, and allows full use of the outside area both day and night, all year round.
