Million Dollar Pool

The Kitchukov family of Gilbert, Ariz., wanted a pool worthy of a Las Vegas resort, so that’s exactly what they built. This one, far larger than most hotel pools, features waterfalls, palm trees, custom lighting and flaming fountains.

The palm trees surrounding the pool had to be brought in by crane and lifted over the house and into the backyard. The boulders used to create the waterfalls are larger than Cadillacs.
