After waiting much of the year for it not to be too cool for the pool, we'll be darned if we're going to let a little triple-digit heat index action keep us from making a splash. Nevertheless, all the high-quality chlorinated h20 and SPF 30 in the world can only offer so much relief to the being beamed with waves of brutal humidity like on July 20th, 2015. Today, these indoor pools north of NYC pay their dividends:
BEDFORD | 1 Bedford Center Road | $6,995,000
Moments from Metro North and the charming little village of Bedford Hills, this gated 13 acre estate features a rustic state-of-the-art indoor pool chamber, appointed with a rustic yet refined flair reminiscent of a grand Catskills resort. Elsewhere on the property, there's a second pool of the outdoor variety, flowering specimen gardens, a tennis court and garaging for seven cars.
POUND RIDGE | 45 Mallard Lake | $4,950,000
On a hillside above Mallard Lake, this spacious solarium captures the creative vision of master architect Vuko Tashkovich in defining a dynamic residence blending modern sensibilities with its wooded surroundings. When the humidity wrings itself out of the air, sliding glass panels retract to seamlessly bridge the adjacent outdoor patio, affording swimmers and loungers alike to fully appreciate scenic views across the property.
SCARSDALE | 2 Morris Lane | $3,900,000
The wow factor of this stunning custom Contemporary in Scarsdale's Murray Hill section is difficult to fully capture through photos and words alone. An almost Frank Lloyd Wrightian facade reveals a soaring, circular foyer leading to this serious indoor pool wing on the main level. After you've raisined up in the pool and spa, retreat downstairs to his/her cabanas, outfitted with full baths—and, if you haven't had enough of the one outside, there's a sauna to boot.
