"There used to be a bigger pool here," Cooke explains. "Built in the '70s, it was 20x40 feet and 13 feet deep." And the old one held 54,000 gallons of water; this one holds 17,000. "It was a lot less money to fill it in, to build a new pool rather than repair the existing one," adds Musso. "We found some tiles that were appropriate to the period of the house, creating a pool that felt like it would have been in style when the house was originally built in the 1920s."
