In the world of music in general and violins in particular, the name Stradivarius is sacred and revered. It is a name that is recognized by even those casual fans who are not aware of the intricacies of music. And when a Stradivarius gets stolen, it is a story for the tabloids to swoop in on. Yet, here is a homeowner who has showcased his love for the 1700s era Stradivarius violin in a whole different fashion. This violin-shaped swimming pool is a perfect replica of the Stradivarius and was built with great care and precision by the folks at Cipriano Landscape Design & Custom Swimming Pools.
Now, the initial reaction of those who are not all that aware of the rich heritage and history of the Stradivarius might be that the idea is a touch extravagant. But you will quickly change your mind when you realize that there are very few of these original violins left, and some of them have been auctioned off for well over $10 million. Considering that price tag, this luxurious and stunning pool is definitely the cheaper option! Complete with f-holes, a bridge, strings, a tailpiece, and a chin rest, the replica pool is as close to the real thing as possible… Just a touch larger and a bit drenched!
There is more to this amazing pool though as an adjacent koi pond brings the image of the violin bow, while a rejuvenating spa adds to the opulence of the entire landscape. And once the sun starts to set, this audacious pool comes to life with its 250 fiber optic star-lights and rope lighting that define its borders. Add to this, 5760 strands of fiber optic lights the dazzle as the Stradivarius strings and you truly have a spectacular and inimitable pool.
Controlled with an iPhone, one can easily alter the mood and the lighting style of the entire backyard with the simple touch of a button. Equipped with underwater music streaming, this is a pool for those who appreciate the finer things in both life and music!
