One Of The Best Palm Springs Pools
The focal point of this celebrity pool is the unique shape. This piano-shaped pool was built specifically to meet Frank’s tastes and not only is it appropriate, it is also quite beautiful as well. The architectural design of this pool and accompanying pool area focus on minimalist features instead of gaudy looks.
Since the main building itself makes use of straight lines and sharp angles, the swimming pool makes and effort to accommodate this design choice as well. So, in an effort to fit the overall aesthetic of this Palm Springs estate, the swimming pool incorporates long flowing lines as well. However, in addition to this there are a couple curves that are present in the pool’s framework. Instead of close tight curves that we see on many freeform pools, these curves are long and flowing. This allows this side of the pool to contrast the sharp lines and angles of the estate but still somehow compliment the overall aesthetic as well.
The pool area of the Twin Palms Estate also has a useful pool house situated nearby. This pool house contains convenient his and hers bathrooms so that guests don’t have to make their way into the main building. There is also a lavish kitchenette and bar at the pool house, a perfect place for a few poolside drinks or a cozy lunch.
Frank Sinatra was the embodiment of Hollywood royalty and his luxury Palm Springs home carries on his legacy, showcasing his style and flair to lucky visitors.
