Built to perfection

Making a carefully planned vision a reality

Built to perfection
Project by Betz Pools Ltd.

It took the entire season to complete the backyard of this new home in Ancaster, Ont. Not from production delays, but rather the owner’s unrelenting commitment to perfection. He wanted to ensure every single element brought functionality to his carefully planned backyard luxury leisure living space.

Betz Pools was contacted by the homeowner’s landscape architect. At this stage, the only item in place in the backyard was the roof structure and concrete foundation for an elevated loggia across the back of the home. The initial plan called for the placement of a pool and sports court several steps down at ground level.

The consultant from Betz suggested raising the pool and deck to mitigate the change in grade of the sloping lot. The far side of the 4.8- x 11.5-m (16- x 38-ft) custom-vinyl pool, which is elevated three steps above the sports court, serves as a retaining wall.

The pool features elegant wide-tread custom vinyl-over-steel walk-in steps. These steps, along with the spa seats and spacious 2.1- x 4.5-m (7- x 15-ft) tanning shelf, are lightly padded to provide comfort and prevent slipping. The pool’s blue pebble liner contrasts beautifully with the sand-blasted Algonquin stone coping. The coping’s square-cut face lends a modern look.

The 1.8- x 1.9-m (6- x 6.33-ft) custom vinyl-over-steel spa is centred on the length of the pool. This “sport pool” has a medium depth ranging from a 1.2-m (4-ft) shallow end to a 1.6-m (5.2-ft) deep end. With the pool’s shallow depth, the spa is easily accessible from all four sides.

The eight-person outdoor dining table, which is conveniently located beside the kitchen walkout, is sheltered by the loggia roof structure. The premium clear cedar tongue-and-groove ceiling features Solaria radiant heaters, which help to extend the season for outdoor entertaining.

Also located next to the kitchen walkout, the custom outdoor barbecue station features a full complement of premium Twin Eagles stainless steel appliances and storage accessories. The black granite countertop and custom Algonquin stone cladding blends beautifully with the loggia’s structural materials.

A spacious outdoor lounge area, also sheltered by the loggia, is located beside the home’s family room. The focal point is the custom stone-clad fire feature with elegant linear flame burner. A pair of flanking frosted glass panels helps to enhance privacy and block any chilling breezes.

  1. Hello, Thank you for sharing such an informative post. It’s worth reading. My name is Adam James, and I’m a senior administrative assistant at SEO Agency Ireland. A couple of months ago, I got my bonus from my company and started looking for this type of pool built at a minimal size. Could you please tell me if it is possible to have it in a different size? Thanks.

  2. There are lots of sports bar and kitchen in Euless having such attractive and best interior decorations. Basically the sports bar and the other public places are for the people relaxation and refreshments and these kind of looks and attractions give the positive vibes to the people who need.

  3. Wow. This is just my dream house. Looks great, no exaggeration. I really liked this photo and I even had the idea to use it in one of my projects. How do you like las vegas vector ? I like images like this. That’s why my joy knew no bounds when I joined this marketplace, because there are so many cool pictures, videos and music files. Now this is my inspiration. Moreover, they really help me a lot in the implementation of my most daring ideas.
