On the east harbor section of the River Spree in Berlin, a barge has been reconstructed into a floating swimming pool. This unique pool offers bathers a safe swimming area since the river is too polluted for safe swimming. The Badeschiff is open to the public and the swim season lasts from May to September.

Top-10-richest-actors-in-the-worldToday we’re profiling Sylvester Stallone and his new $4.5 million La Quinta, California mansion. The actor, director of movies such as The Expendables, Rambo, and countless other action flicks has had an illustrious career in cinema dating back to 1976 when he wrote and starred in the academy award winning classic Rocky, the film would be nominated for a total of 9 academy awards and won 3 for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Film Editing. Stallone would be nominated for Best Actor in his first serious dramatic role. Since then he’s had enormous success at the box office and with a net worth of over $400 million, Stallone can certainly afford the finer things in life.

Celebrity Pools - Sylvester StalloneBeing a multimillionaire, Stallone has many homes, of note he has a 15,000 square foot mansion sitting on 4 acres in Beverly Hills, as well as another palatial home located in Lake Tahoe. His new home located within the confines of the Madison Club in La Quinta, CA, is situated on one of the premier private golf courses in the country. The Stallone residence is a blend of Mediterranean and Spanish design motifs set on a lot of nearly a half acre. A far cry from his former $25 million, 11.7 acre bayfront luxury estate in Coconut Grove, he downsized in 1997 after having his youngest daughter was born. Rumor has it that since he and his former wife Jennifer Flavin are indeed looking to part ways that he’s thinking of selling yet again and perhaps moving back to the Miami area.

Celebrity Pools – Ashton Kutcher Hollywood Hills

Ashton Kutcher’s 9,385 square foot contemporary Hollywood Hills home is simply amazing. The “That 70’s Show” star had been renting the home at one time for $50,000 a month and pulled the trigger before Justin Beiber who had also had interest in the home. He just had to have it and we know why! The home comes equipped with a luxury swimming pool custom built with one thing in mind – entertainment. As far as celebrity pools go, this one is certainly one of the best.

These are luxury features you won’t find just anywhere, including: a floating dining area, a meandering infinity pool that enters the house, and a patio with an unbelievable view of Lake Hollywood. Word around the campfire is Ashton is planning on purchasing a new home with longtime co-star Mila Kunis in expectation of their new baby on the way. Rumor has it that after quietly shopping this palacial glass mansion on the marketing for around $12 mil or so he recently sold it for a tidy profit. If building this type of luxury celebrity swimming pool is a must have for you – why not contact Premier Pools & Spas today?
