House plans designed for swimming pools require careful thought and planning to make the most of the sparkling blue pool. This luxurious Mediterranean home design does just that! The floor plan was fashioned with the pool in mind reaping all the benefits it has to offer.
First, consider the view. Most of the main gathering areas are arranged across the back of the home delivering views of the pristine water from all angles. The family room, dinette and living room not only enjoy direct views of the pool and surrounding areas, but also open to the pool and lanai extending the living areas outdoors. Plenty of natural light spills inside through the use of pocketing sliding-glass doors, French doors, windows, and mitered glass. Furthermore, guests immediately receive a breathtaking and refreshing view of the pool the moment they step though the double door entry as the foyer affords a glimpse of the pool through the living room. The master suite is also oriented to the poolside view with a wall of windows and sliding glass doors overlooking the water’s edge. Views of the pool are always an important element with house plans designed for swimming pools.
Now pay attention to the outdoor living area. With many of the living areas, the master suite and Bedroom 4 opening to the lanai, this design encourages outdoor living and enjoyment of the poolside atmosphere. There is plenty of room to relax on chase lounges and add outdoor dining patio furniture. Take a look at the summer kitchen promoting outdoor cooking and dining alfresco with friends and family. There is nothing like enjoying an exquisite meal beside the water. The layout accommodates small and large groups as well as pool parties. Many house plans designed for swimming pools make the most of outdoor living spaces.
Finally, this floor plan offers a pool bath beside Bedroom 4. Its convenient location works well for using the restroom and provides a space for visitors and guests to change clothes without leaving wet footprints throughout the home. Convenience is key with floor plans designed for swimming pools.
While the main focus of this Mediterranean house plan is its pool orientation, this ranch floor plan has much more to offer. Four bedrooms and four baths, arranged in a split-bedroom layout, accommodate a large or growing family while keeping everyone on one level. The island kitchen is designed for efficiency serving both the formal and casual dining spaces with equal ease, not to mention its simple access to the lanai. Fanciful ceiling treatments top the dining room, living room and family room while a fireplace surrounded with built-ins adds a touch of flair. Practical elements include a peaceful den, ideal for a home office, His and Her walk-in closets, a convenient utility room and a 3-car garage. For the home owner, a sumptuous bath is ready to pamper, refresh and relax. A double bowl vanity and compartmented toilet are only the beginning. A splashy soaking tub and huge walk-in shower are the main attractions.
Sophisticated, yet family-oriented, this house plan designed for a pool is sure to get your attention.
