Usually there’s no running by the pool, but we’d say these six Louisville listings with lavish in-ground swimming pools are worth the risk.
A Mediterranean masterpiece in the Highlands, $2,490,000
Built in 1897, this two-acre estate boasts a heated pool with lights and three chiseled stone fountains. A grill center, cabana with a bar and full bath + multiple seating areas round out this luxury hangout — complete with surround-sound capabilities.
Bonus: This home also has a wet bar modeled after the Louisville Palace.
Modern Germantown gem, $750,000
This newly constructed home’s contemporary design flows through the house and into the backyard. Surrounded by a privacy fence, the stoned-in patio and pool await in the heart of one of Louisville’s most popular neighborhoods.
A quaint Seneca Park oasis, $650,000
This 1950s three-bedroom home still has a few retro features — see the pink-tiled bathroom — but the real star is the small, oval-shaped pool hidden within a well-manicured, shaded garden.
Belgian-inspired River Road mansion, $7,650,000
To infinity and beyond. No expense was spared in creating this 10-acre Ohio River Valley residence — including the oversized infinity-edge pool in the backyard. Surrounded by lush greenery, this crystal blue pool also has a three-tiered fountain flowing into it.
Harrods Glen estate, $3,995,000
Outside of this grandeur, 9,842-sqft house is basically an onsite clubhouse. Flanked by tall evergreens, the private outdoor space features a rectangular pool with a diving board, a pool house with a full bathroom and bar area, a stone fire pit + a full sports court. Game on.
Golfer’s East End paradise, $1,295,000
Located next to the Valhalla golf course, this five-bedroom home comes with a heated saltwater pool that has a 50-ft creek stone waterfall that overlooks the scenic, terraced hillside.
