The Robert Gurney 'Nevis Pool and Garden Pavilion' is a delicate glass abode surrounded by nature from all angles. The pitched roof appears as if it's floating in space as the glass structure beneath blends into the background.

With a backyard garden like that, it would not do things justice to use traditional brick or wooden slat walls. The crystal space allows guests to sit back and enjoy the raw natural surroundings in the comforts of their living room. The miniature detached sunroom comes with a fully functioning kitchen and wood-fired hearth, perfect for all-season entertaining. This is one property where the pool house might just be nicer than the pool itself.
