5 Homes with Infinity Pools

Luxury Defined tours five stunning homes, each with its own zero-edge pool

It’s summertime, and what better way to escape the triple-digit temperatures than in cool waters and the beautiful illusion of an infinity pool? The water flows over a vanishing edge, there to be silently filtered, cleaned, and returned. Ah, the Zen tranquility of it. But that edge, that negative-edge horizon line makes artists of us all, placing us at the center of a new perspective on the world. What better way to contemplate that view—whether it be the sea, mountains, or countryside—from the glassy surface of water melding into a cloudless blue sky? Consider a coastal compound with a pool facing Narragansett Bay. And if one infinity pool isn’t enough, how about five, each framing a picture-perfect vista of Mexico’s Pacific coast? The homes featured in this Luxury Defined collection illustrate why an infinity pool is more than a trick of perspective: it’s the ultimate place to while away a lazy summer afternoon.
