It was part of an overall garden renovation. We don't provide the exact prices to respect clients privacy. As a rough rule of thumb for clients wanting a pool we give them a range from $80,000 to $150,000 to install once you include all the surrounds, fencing, cleaning equipment etc. Dependant on the size of the pool, where it is going and the subsoils.

It is located in Sydney. It is not a hotel but a private residence.

I'd love to know more of the construction details. Is this a continuous poured enclosure? Build up from block? There are so few examples of above ground lap pools and this one is killer! SO pretty, such clean lines, so compact. Please provide more details. Inquiring minds are dying to know (*~*)

Apologies for the delay in answering your question, we missed this one. The pool is off-form concrete. Formed and built on site by the builder who constructed the house at the same time.

I'd love to know the dimensions of this pool. What length is sufficient for a good lap swim? And width, is that debatable? A very lovely pool indeed!

If you're really strapped for space, just as with treadmills for running, you can purchase treadmills for swimming (what will they think of next?!). Here's one example: http://www.endlesspools.com/ :) Rhoda

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Garden Tour: Three Levels of Outdoor Living
Like the design, the materials selected for the hardscape are sparse and pared down. The Australian hardwood decking adds richness and warmth to an otherwise cool and monochromatic palette. “The interior warmth comes from solid wood furnishings, and that was mimicked with the timber decking outside,” explains Cantwell. The transition from inside out was achieved by maintaining a loose connection between both spaces.” Cantwell notes that on a cold morning, the deck literally warms your feet.
