These homes with pools are perfect for making a splash this summer

In most other cities, a home with a pool is a relatively common occurrence. But in New York, where few homes have outdoor space—much less enough of it in which to build a structure sufficiently large to hold gallons and gallons of water—it’s a true luxury. Here, five homes that deliver the impossible.

Built over a hundred years ago in 1905, this three bedroom, two-bath row house at 24 Winthorp Street in Lefferts Gardens (listed at $1.695 million) includes one rather retro amenity: An above ground pool in the backyard.

A three bedroom, 3.5-bath house at 2406 National Drive in Mill Basin, Brooklyn (on the market for $2.395 million) has this built-in gunite pool (and hot tub!) located on a large, waterfront deck with its own boat slip and jet ski ramp.

This 2,000 square foot tiered landscaped garden with a heated pool joins a pair of 19th century townhouses—one at 166 East 81st Street, the other at 179 East 80th Street (both, yours for $28 million)—making for a truly decadent main house/pool house arrangement.

Finally, you get an in-ground saltwater pool with this five bedroom, five-bath house at 14-33 164th Street in Beechhurst, Queens (asking price: $2.8 million).
