This mountainside aquatic retreat features two pools: a whirlpool on the upper level and a calm pool on the lower level. The large, carved-concrete deck was stained and sealed to match native rocks and connects the two pools. What better way to enjoy such a picturesque view?

Vanishing-Edge: These types of pools can “enhance a breathtaking view or particular focal point. Though vanishing-edge pools look natural in almost any setting, they work best in yards that are elevated or have a slope. In level areas like Maryland, the best locations are properties with waterfront views.” -Daniel J. Bridges, President and Owner, AQUA Pools & Spas, Easton, Md.; Photo courtesy of AQUA Pools & Spas
