6 Gorgeous Philly-Area Swimming Pools
There are swimming pools, and there are swimming pools. Philly-area homes have plenty of the latter, and on gorgeous sun-soaked days like today, we wish for nothing more than a swimming pool to perch beside. Here, six amazing ones. (Plus one hot tub so cool, we couldn’t resist.)

Location: Chestnut Hill
Of note: This lap pool features a biofilter; plants in the filter consume algae and nitrates to keep the water clean naturally.
Location: Center City
Of note: The same materials were used both inside and outside of this home, creating a seamless, connected feel.
Of note: Okay, okay this is technically a hot tub, not a pool. But the smart designers hid it beneath this Fairmount deck, so that it can be fully covered by wood planking to maintain the deck’s full size when not in use. We’d take it.
