When the Wilkinson family moved into their beautiful home in Saffron Walden they wanted a swimming pool that would enhance and not detract from the stunning house and landscaped gardens. This eye-catching pool, hallmarked with the Certikin stamp and built by Cambridgeshire pool builder, Aqualeaf, more than fitted the bill.
We approached Aqualeaf with a brief to create a pool which is long enough to swim in but one that wouldn’t dominate the garden or take up too much space. Its prime purpose is to provide our children with a source of fun and exercise,” says Ian Wilkinson.
MD of Aqualeaf, Paul Carmen, says: “It’s fair to say that the house and gardens of this particular property are, by anyone’s standards, simply stunning so we knew we were looking to create something special. We installed a 9.5m x 4m x 1.5m deep liner pool in just six weeks and I understand the pool has more than met the Wilkinson’s expectations. Indeed, Ian concludes: “Aqualeaf have done an excellent job and we look forward to a long hot summer to put the pool through its paces.”
