Pure poolside bliss was achieved at this South Perth residence by installing a large below-ground swimming pool for the whole family to enjoy.
Claire Serginson and her husband Chris wanted a pool to fit their backyard and cater to the needs of their growing family. “We had a specific size and design in mind for our home, but had not found what we were looking for,” Mrs Serginson said.
After a visit to the Pool, Spa & Outdoor Living Expo at Claremont Showground, the couple was impressed with Buccaneer Pools and selected a design they were happy with. “Buccaneer had exactly what we were hoping for on display, and the honest service provided by James Jackson really helped seal the deal for us,” Mrs Serginson said.
A fortunate series of events unfolded for Mr and Mrs Serginson when it came to selecting the colour for their pool design. “We had a specific colour in mind that no company currently stocked, but luckily Linley and Travis from Buccaneer’s head office wanted to design a new colour,” Mrs Serginson said. “We ended up working together with Buccaneer and agreed to trial the new colour.”
The project took about a month to complete and took out silver in the Residential Fibreglass Pools $40,000-$60,000 category at the recent 2018 SPASA WA Awards of Excellence. “We had a very clear vision of how we wanted the pool area to look and were adamant about including an undercover space next to the pool,” Mrs Serginson said.
Buccaneer’s Positano pool design, measuring 6m by 3.2m, was selected to fit the space, with a long bench seat running the entire length of the pool and acting as a safety zone for younger children to use.
Premium frameless glass fencing complemented the home’s stylish aesthetic whilst meeting safety requirements. Prior to the pool, the area housed an old stick-framed pergola and an intrusive peppermint tree that constantly dropped leaves. The decision to install a new pool alongside a new undercover alfresco transformed the backyard and will continue to provide entertainment for the Serginson family for years to come.
“We love the fun and enjoyment the pool brings to our family life,” Mrs Serginson said.
“It’s where we end up as a family each day and the first place we go when friends visit.”
