A Gorgeous Modern House Where the Pool’s the Star!

This air well divided the two sections of the house and became the perfect place for an indoor/outdoor swimming pool.

The coolest part, of course, is that you can open up the glazed partitions of the house so that the first floor becomes one large living space. The ground floor, then, is not only a lounge and dinning area, it is an ideal place to relax and sit poolside, a place to sip margaritas and soak in the rays.

A private, modern mecca? I’m sold.
