Not much is written about the Swimming pool, but it is one of the most beautifully designed areas. The only thing of note, was during World War I, the swimming pool terrace was used as a Victory Garden.
Today, the area boast beautiful roses, Clematis, and Wisteria. It is a very romantic scene.
The reflecting pool was built after the gardens became public. It adds a cooling, tropical feel to the terrace.
The sun porch transitions between the interior and the exterior. The arched openings were at one time glazed, making the space functional year-round. But later, when the gardens went public, were taken back to the original design and opened up. When I was here, people sat to enjoy it as it was originally intended.
