The Benefits of Adding a Custom Pool to Your Luxury Homes

by Arelys Alexander

Living in Southwest Florida allows residents to the advantage of our year-round gorgeous weather and the award-winning white sandy beaches nestled against the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico.  Aside from a day at the beach, many residents also enjoy creating an outdoor oasis so they can enjoy the outdoor atmosphere without ever leaving their home.  For this reason, a custom pool is necessary to create an ideal outdoor living space for a quintessential Florida lifestyle.

From the convenience of being right in your backyard to the amazing alfresco dinners and refreshing pool parties you can have on any given day, here are some of the reasons adding a custom pool will make your luxury home complete.

No Driving to the Club 

When summer hits, all you want to do is swim in your pool. If you live in a luxury home community, they more than likely have an olympic-sized pool to swim laps or just relax with a group of friends in the summer sun.  However, if you don’t want to make the trip to the luxury community pool and just want to have a great time with close friends in your home, then a custom pool is the way to go. Beat the summer heat with a custom pool filled with all the perks and features they offer at the club, while still being able to enjoy the community amenity perks at the club. 

Fitness Right Around the Corner

Other than fun and relaxation, a custom pool allows you to get the exercise you need for a healthy and active lifestyle.  Swimming is a low impact exercise that allows you to get a cardiovascular workout without putting stress on your bones, joints, and muscles. When you have a custom pool in your luxury home, you can swim a few laps and get your exercise in anytime you wish and know that your body won’t suffer from the impact years down the road.

Pool Parties 

Perhaps one of the most imperative reasons to add a custom pool in your luxury home is the fun-filled afternoons with family and friends. London Bay Homes focuses on outdoor living spaces to create a lavish area to enjoy the Florida sunshine, with an outdoor kitchen, outdoor living area, and outdoor dining area located right by your custom pool.  This open space beckons family get-togethers and summer pool parties with your children and grandchildren.  

Custom Pools Increase the Value of Your Home 

If you ever find the need to sell your home, whether you’re moving to another city or state, are ready for an upgrade, or are ready to resize your home now that the children have moved out, you’ll want to make sure you’ll get a good return on your investment.  Adding a custom pool in your home will increase its appeal and help deliver the selling price you need.  This is especially true in Florida where an outdoor living space is almost a necessity.
