Nothing says summer like a swimming pool of your very own. Throw in a river view and a hammock and a long, tall drink and you’re set for the season. Real estate experts say that pools are really value neutral when it comes time to sell your house, but they sure do look mighty appealing to summertime buyers who are hot and tired and sick of looking at houses.
Here are five homes with cool pools listed for sale in the Hudson Valley that caught our eye.
