At the front of the 54-by-21-foot pool is a retractable cover and at the back are a sun shelf and an eight-person hot tub. A pergola with limestone columns provides partial shade. It’s flanked by fastigiate sweet gum trees, which have a narrow form. “They have a nice fall presence—leaves in four different colors,” Knapp says.
