Too cold for a swim? Not in these Philly suburban mansions

The pool at 1070 Eagle Rd., Newtown, Pa.

With weeks of dreary winter left, we are dreaming of warmer climates and sunny, poolside vacations. If you can’t whisk yourself away to the tropics, at least an opportunity for swimming might scratch the summertime itch. These three multimillion-dollar homes feature indoor pools so lovely that January will seem like a distant memory.

1070 Eagle Rd., Newtown
Monthly taxes: $3,212 
Tell me all about it: Not only does this home include an enormous indoor swimming pool, it also features a sauna. The rest of the property is pretty remarkable, too, boasting six bedrooms including a master suite in its own wing. The two-story suite features two separate entrances, separate water closets, dual walk-in closets, and a spa-like bath with soaking tub and a heated towel rack. Guests also have access to a private apartment with their own entrance. Bonus: The property is on 15 gorgeous acres.

5441 Ash Rd., Doylestown 
Monthly taxes: $1,971 
Tell me all about it: Part of this self-described gentleman’s farm dates to 1728, but the home includes modern touches such as an au-pair suite, custom chef’s kitchen, and an indoor pool with its own entertaining area. You can keep the dream of a modern-day farm alive with the potagère kitchen garden that includes a chicken coop, raised planting beds, and two paddocks. The 10-acre property also has a stone barn and a private pond.

100 Springhouse Lane, Newtown Square 
Monthly taxes: $5,908 
Tell me all about it: Casa Pacifica features a 4,000-square-foot indoor pool pavilion, which also has a sauna, icy plunge pool, foot bath, and a walk-in shower. Dressing rooms and a separate kitchen and dining area basically make this into a private spa. The rest of the home is just as luxurious, including six bedrooms and 11 bathrooms inside, as well as a bluestone terrace and multiple gardens outside.
