Nothing says summer like a sparkling, sun-drenched pool beckoning you to unwind with a frozen cocktail in hand. We invite you to enjoy this dose of summer inspiration, featuring some of our favorite pools, from the Sunset Strip to Indian Wells, from the Hollywood Hills to Palm Springs.
This stunning architectural marvel off the Sunset Strip, represented by Mauricio Umansky and Rouja Koleva, is centered around the outdoor experience, where water features, a grassy lawn and sun-soaked terraces lead to the zero-edge swimming pool and sprawling adjacent cabana. And there’s much more than initially meets the eye. The lower level of the home offers alluring views of the pool from below; a view that is the eye-catching centerpiece of the magnificent lounge and bar. An entertainer’s dream, the home also boasts a 21-foot motorized wine rack, fitness studio, sauna, spacious home theatre and seven-car gallery.
Rolling green fairways, distant mountain peaks and shady palms come into view from the zero-edge pool of this custom Toscana Country Club estate, represented by Richard Bartholomew. Flanked on either end by raised fire bowls, the pool boasts a shallow ledge for lounging, a raised, heated spa, an expansive sundeck and adjacent sunken fire-pit lounge for the ultimate outdoor living experience. The final south-facing home along a double fairway in the community, the estate captures sunlight from morning to sunset.
An award-winning, contemporary home situated on the exclusive Bird Streets, 9318 Nightingale, represented by Mauricio Umansky and Alejandro Aldrete, captures sweeping city and ocean views from the spectacular, elevated pool terrace.

The masterful architectural achievement was designed by Zoltan Pali of SPF:architects and built by Dugally Oberfeld.
Situated in one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the city, this new construction Royal Oaks home, represented by Craig Knizek, counts an ultra-private, resort-style pool among its enviable amenities.

Among the home features are a gated motor court, two-story guest house, movie theatre, basketball court and rooftop terrace with a wall-sized TV, second BBQ and bar.
The 110-foot, infinity-edge pool spans the width of this contemporary custom home nestled along the hillside in Beverly Hills, capturing unobstructed vistas that encompass Downtown Los Angeles, Century City, the Valley and the Pacific Ocean beyond. Located just two minutes from The Beverly Hills Hotel, the home, represented by Mauricio Umansky, Jon Grauman and Brendan Fitzpatrick, was designed by Joseph Ferrugio to blur the line between indoor and outdoor living. The home’s lower entertainer’s level with Calacatta marble bar offers underwater viewing into the crescent-shaped swimming pool above.
You can’t live the ultimate Palm Springs lifestyle without a sparkling pool to slip into, be it day or night.
