Amazing Stradivarius Violin Swimming Pool Creates Backyard Fantasy


What an incredible recreation of a Stradivarius violin – as a backyard swimming pool.

Complete with all the violin accoutrements: purlflings, f-holes, a bridge, strings, a tailpiece and a chin rest. This pool was custom built for an amateur violin player — can you imagine? We were expecting the head of the New York Symphony!

And New Jersey-based Cipriano Landscape Design is the company that made his dream a reality. We found this stunning backyard fantasy at Trendir and couldn’t resist writing about it ourselves.

Of course, there’s an underwater speaker system for listening to music, and the heater is 1,000,000 BTUs – plenty of power to keep the pool as warm as you’d like it, even in a NJ winter.

And the colors and lights? All of the technology surrounding this pool is controlled from an iPhone. Can’t get much more convenient (or impressive than that).

The chin rest is a 12-person spa, and the strings are LED rope lights. The strings create lap lanes — and there’s a Riverflow jet system, which creates a strong current to swim against (when swimming with intent). And the owner loves Koi so you guessed it — the bow of the violin was fashioned into two koi ponds, each with 250 fiber optic starlights (and fish of course).

The result is a backyard fantasy that is truly one of a kind and so absolutely jaw-dropping that we have only one word: Bravo!


LED rope lights are the strings of the violin – but they also serve as lap lane markers.
