This Texas-sized ranch deserved an outdoor environment that would truly reflect the wide open spaces and rugged Western charm of the home and property. The end result is a massive, multi-level pool and entertainment venue.

This AQUA Choice-winning poolscape utilizes four distinctive water elevations as it follows the site's sloping terrain. The first is an oversized elevated spa with native boulder stream spilling into the upper level, which features a 50-foot-long lap and volleyball pool. This custom vessel vanishes into the next level below — an 800-square-foot mid-level diving pool with 40 feet of vanishing edge, which delivers a stunning flow of water to the lower level catch basin.

The total water area is close to 2,000 square feet, and is surrounded by flagstone terraces, a large rustic fireplace, a stone fire pit, and a summer kitchen. The immense size of the area affords many spectacular views of vanishing water, cascading waterfalls and campfire glows from multiple locations. The entire pool is equipped with an in-floor cleaning and debris removal system and is finished in a blue/green aggregate interior. Wow.
