    ALWAYS OPEN | 3 Old Mill Road, Greenwich | $3,875,000
    Oh, you winterize your pool?  How quaint.  Living here is taking up permanent residence in an everyday day spa—all year round.  Notice the massage table, exposed brick and laminate beams.  Inhale.  Exhale.

    WEST EGG | 131 Kirby Lane, Rye | $10,499,000
    Jay Gatsby would dive right into this crystal clear lap pool, housed beneath the sweeping terrace of this waterfront manse.  The natatorium is one of the home's distinguishing features, with Mediterranean art deco-era nods like arched picture windows, dangling wrought iron lanterns and the juxtaposition of stucco walls with hand-hewn beams.

    ON THE ROCKS | 14 Rocky Point Road, Old Greenwich| $4,495,000

    Who needs a fire pit when you have a whaling pot?  This coastal backyard's aquatic playground boasts a bit of nautical flair—complete with waterslide.  We'll watch from the pod lounger while the kids duke it out on the rocks with plastic pirate swords.

    MY OH MEIER | 46 Old Roaring Brook Road, Mount Kisco | $3,495,000
    The two-tiered pool beside this later-mid century Richard Meier masterpiece is a sight to behold, complete with a waterfall cascading into the lower lagoon.  You'll probably have too much fun swimming under the footbridge to the far terrace.

    TWO IS BETTER THAN ONE | 888 Old Post Road, Bedford | $14,500,000
    Who needs one pool when you can have two?  This magnificent Bedford manse features both the outdoor and indoor variety—the latter in a fully-furnished skylit natatorium that flows into the adjacent indoor tennis pavilion.

    TRICKLE DOWN | 66 Manor Pond Lane, Irvington | $2,195,000
    Immersed in lush plantings, there's a bit of a Disneyland element to this free-form waterfall pool.  It's flanked by a lit walking path and flagstone patio to take it all in.

    TO INFINITY AND BEYOND | 311 Shore Road, Greenwich
    The internet's favorite style of swimming hole is hardly reserved for more modern home styles.  This edgy pool (pun intended) complements the home's classic Queen Anne-nouveau lines wonderfully while letting bathers sneak a peek of going-ons at the yacht basin below.
