Swim in all kinds of weather

I’m not sure why the owners of this Hawaii Kai home put their pool inside the house when they did it: To ensure they could swim, even when it was raining? To provide shade during the hot summer months? To keep leaves and critters out? Whatever the reason, now you can own it and contemplate the benefits. (Click here for details.)

The 384-square-foot lap pool isn’t just enclosed, it’s got a large deck and flat, open areas for entertaining. So if you’re into pool parties and want to guarantee it won’t get rained out or windblown, this is an ideal set up.

The rest of the home is pretty cool, too—when you enter, they have a private, formal living room; the rear section of the 2,153-square-foot house (adjacent to the pool) has three bedrooms, a large family room, and the kitchen. There’s a total of five bedrooms and two baths in this multi-level set up with high, vaulted ceilings.

It’s definitely a unique house with a unique floor plan, one you have to see to understand. Maybe this is a good one for Michael Phelps. Not for you? If you’re in the area, check out other listings, here.
