The owners are both swimmers and wanted a true lap-pool design. The pool’s depth varies, but they made sure both ends were deep enough for flip turns.

For tile, the owners chose a blend of blues, which reflect the nearby ocean, and golds, which give off flecks of sunshine. The colors complement the deck, made of yellow Halila limestone, which comes from a quarry in Jerusalem.

This automatic pool cover, designed by Aquamatic, retains heat and keeps chemical usage low. Cool factor: It's stored inside the pool, and comes up through the water. Here’s how it works: A hydraulic lid in the floor of the pool opens, allowing the plastic cover to float to the top. At the surface, it unrolls slat by slat, in both directions, until it reaches the ends. Very James Bond.
