Private indoor pools in which to indulge your inner Michael Phelps

In a city where pools are scarce, any building offering a place to swim is a draw. But a private indoor pool that can be used rain or shine, winter or summer, day or night, 365 days of the year, well that’s taking the perk to a whole new level.

All of these already impressive homes come complete with indoor pools that are ideal for stroke work, split times, your racing turn practice, perfecting underwater handstands and rollicking games of Marco Polo. What are you waiting for? Dive in!

Located on the top floor of this 11,500-square-foot townhouse at 2 North Moore in Tribeca (on the market for $44.5 million) is a private fitness facility, including a fully equipped gym and this 50-foot pool.

As stunning as this sky-lit pool—tucked into the lower level of a six-story townhouse at 107 East 61st Street (yours for $25 million)—is, it’s probably even more awesome-looking filled with water.

As if the river views, coffered ceilings, marble fireplaces, bay windows, multiple outdoor spaces and ornamentation—like gargoyles, scallop shells, and cherubs—galore weren’t enough of a draw, the basement level of this six-story, French Renaissance Revival limestone mansion at 3 Riverside Drive (asking price: $22 million) also houses this nifty indoor lap pool.

Most townhouse basements house extra storage and maybe the laundry room, but this one at 49 East 67th Street (priced at $26 million) has all that, plus this 57-foot indoor pool and—because who wants to run through the house dripping wet after a dip in the water—a shower and a sauna.
