9 Homes with Indoor Swimming Pools

210709 EJ 191 Brayton Englewood NJ 0175 0018HIGH RES

This grandly proportioned family estate on 11 acres in Grouville, on the island of Jersey in the Channel Islands, was built in 1993 to an exacting standard by the current owners. The design combines the 18th-century Palladian style with the use of local pink Jersey granite. Extending to 14,400 square feet of living space, the house takes the form of a U shape, with north and south wings either side of the central core. The living spaces are luxuriously appointed for recreation, entertaining, and working from home. Inside the grand, Doric-columned entrance, the double-height reception hall has a handcrafted marble floor. Mahogany staircases rise to the first-floor gallery where French doors open to a balcony overlooking an impressive Haddonstone circular fountain. Just beyond the hall are the formal dining room and mahogany-panelled library. The beautiful oak kitchen, by Smallbone of Devizes, adjoins a conservatory overlooking the gardens and the views to the south.  An indoor pool complex, housed in the south wing, features hand-painted tiles depicting an Italian countryscape under a glass- and pine-panelled roof. The second floor houses seven bedrooms, including two self-contained guest suites. The third floor features a recreation room with billiards table, an office, boardroom, and kitchenette. Ample parking is provided by an integral, four-car garage and a detached folly with an upstairs staff apartment. The home’s elevated location affords panoramic views towards the southeast coast, the town of St Helier, and the hills and valleys inland.
