There’s a lifetime of enjoyment ahead thanks to this Mornington Peninsula pool with its stunning rural outlook
Located on an expansive rural Mornington Peninsula property, this spectacular 15m-long rectangular pool boasts vistas to the lake at one end and views of Port Phillip Bay at the other.
“The owners’ brief was for a pool that was large enough for swimming laps and family fun, entertainment and relaxation,” explains Chris Jackson, director of Aquarius Pools. Rachcoff Vella Architecture designed a clever shaded alfresco dining area adjacent to the sleek pool, which maximises the stunning rural outlook and hides away the pool equipment. A fireplace features on the opposite wall, framing the pool. Rural fencing borders both ends of the pool and keeps the cows contained.
“This pool’s design, like all those we build, is about great aesthetics and functionality,” says Chris. “It also incorporates a ledge/seat that runs the full length of the pool, which is great for children or for sitting with a drink under the umbrellas.”
Surrounded by bluestone and grass, the pool also had to be user-friendly and low maintenance. The Aqualink in-house controller provides fingertip control of the pool from the living area and kitchen. The iPad and iPhone controls enable the ultimate convenience as the owners can turn on the heat from the office or any remote location. The Paramount PCC in-floor cleaning system ensures fully automated maintenance, and the IntelliFlo pump’s variable speed provides significant power savings over traditional pumps.
With views of the lake, bay, rolling hills and cows to be enjoyed while swimming or relaxing, these homeowners certainly have tranquillity on their doorstep.
