Annangrove lap pool. Multipurpose swimming pool

This multipurpose swimming pool was recently featured in the Pool+Outdoor Design magazine. “A winner of the Hills Building & Design Awards this expansive pool is built on acreage in Annangrove, has something for everyone.”
“The homeowners wanted a pool that would cater to the needs of a young and fitness-conscious family for years to come. It includes a 16.7m x 3m lap pool with dive platform, an 8-metre wide general swimming area with spa and relaxing ledges, as well as a slide for the younger children.”
“The pool is positioned at the rear of the home with an unimpeded outlook over the property. The sloping block allowed for a slate wet-edge to be created by levelling the yard with a retaining wall. The 20mm x 20mm glass mosaics that were selected for the pool surface combine beautifully with the surrounding marble paving and glass fencing to create aesthetic cohesion between the outdoor area, home exterior and bushland beyond.”

Meet the pool builders

MacMahons Point Pool

An article titled ‘Meet the pool builders’ in Pool+Outdoor Design Magazine’s latest edition celebrates Crystal Pools 60th anniversary.
Over the decades we have built pools for some of Sydney’s landmark properties like Admiralty House at Kirribilli, which boasts undoubtedly one of the best views in Sydney and is still in regular use today. Others include Wally ‘Toyota’ Truscott’s harbourside mansion, as well as pools for famous Aussies like Dame Joan Sutherland and Graham Kennedy.
Crystal Pools has witnessed many changes during the last 60 years. In the early days spray and ready-mix concrete were yet to become reality and plans were drawn long-hand in duplicate. Contemporary features such as invisible edging and glass blade edging were yet to appear. These days homeowners are looking at automation and environmental solutions.
