Thirty miles out to sea and seemingly detached from the rest of the world, Nantucket has served as a tranquil summer escape for generations. Already graced with stunning natural beauty, it seems an unwritten rule that even the most luxurious homes, whether newly constructed or renovated centuries-old dwellings, should blend into the already extraordinary landscape.
When one family sought to add a pool to their expansive 12-acre estate on Nantucket’s south shore, they sought a design that would merge seamlessly into the captivating surroundings. In lieu of a conventional pool, the homeowners turned to R.P. Marzilli & Co. of Medway, Massachusetts, to create a natural or “living” pool that would boast chlorine-free water and abundant vegetation creating a refreshing sustainable oasis on the property.
