Ready to immerse yourself? These homes from around Marin County have pools that are perfect for a game of Marco Polo or sophisticated poolside entertaining.
Swimming in this home’s expansive pool and soaking in the spa beside it are just a couple ways to enjoy this lush two-acre property. The house itself maintains its historic charm; it’s a 1896 grand Victorian Stick-style home that was rebuilt to modern specifications 20 years ago. The nine-bedroom property includes a carriage house, an outdoor kitchen, a five-car garage, gardens with fruit trees, a rose garden and a redwood grove.
This home’s 24-meter lap pool is perfect for getting some exercise under the redwoods. The four-bedroom contemporary house caters to those who love the outdoors: It has an outdoor kitchen, exterior heating and a built-in fire pit. It’s located near the Meadow Club Golf Course, with hiking and biking trails within a stone’s throw.
This pool has an ornate look—fitting for this home, which is a Tuscan-style, three-bedroom farmhouse with many decorative details inside. Near the pool is an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven, a rose garden and raised beds for a vegetable garden. The property offers views of San Francisco, Angel Island, the Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge and Belvedere Island.
You can swim anytime in this truly unique indoor pool: It has a Nautilus-inspired shape, teak framing, louvered windows and detailed tilework. Beyond that, the interior of this four-bedroom home on a double lot offers 180-degree views on the main level, old-growth redwood walls and millwork and a home theater. Other special details include a lily pond, a circular car port and an art studio.
Aloha! This five-bedroom home features a Hawaii-inspired pool and spa with a rock border and a cascading waterfall. It also boasts a great amount of privacy: the more than five-acre property is at the end of a gated roadway. Not far from the pool is a rustic stone-and-wood cabana with an outdoor kitchen. The former owner is a renowned musician, so naturally there’s a professional sound studio inside.
