A unique feature of the house is a 32’ x 16” heated indoor pool surrounded by a pool deck in a separate insulated outbuilding. Stairs make it easy for anyone to enter and exit the pool. The clear roof functions much like a green house, capturing heat so that no propane is consumed during the summer months, and propane costs are greatly reduced the rest of the time, permitting economical year round swimming. The roof telescopes so that you can be out in the open air if you wish. Once closed, the roof not only retains heat, but also keep debris and leaves from getting in the pool, which makes pool maintenance very easy. The roof also provides UV protection so sunscreen isn’t necessary on even the sunniest days. The heating system for the pool is brand new and will provide years of thermostatically controlled trouble-free heating when required.
