8 of New Orleans' best pools 

Perfect to a "T"

The simple mandate for this Old Metairie yard was a lap pool where the homeowner could swim for exercise. But the overall home renovation, which included a cabana, outdoor kitchen and basketball court (by Schneider Construction & Restoration) as well as the pool, took the concept to a new level. Earl Hardouin of Paradise Pools and Spas and architect Jen Inman designed the T-shaped pool. The lap portion measures 61.5 feet. There is a cold dip area (kept at a lower temperature) for cooling off after workouts. The shorter center stem includes the steps and a hot tub. Other amenities include high-efficiency LED lights that can change colors, spouts that arc over the pool and a pergola over one end. The floor of the pool is covered with black tile, a striking contrast to the house's light tones and flagstone decking.
