The house has an indoor SwimEx lap pool. The pool has a swim-in-place feature, with various resistance settings. "If part of your workout routine is swimming, this lap pool is a nice feature," says one of the listing agents, noting it's unusual to find a house for less than $1 million with an indoor pool. The pool room, which looks out over the 90-by-156-foot property, has windows along two walls, skylights and recessed lighting.

21 The Registy, East Quogue

For the owner of this 4,400-square-foot contemporary, having an indoor pool has been a source of pure joy. While it's a wonderful spot to gather with family and friends, the homeowner says it's been especially nice to take a dip while snow is falling outside.

The heated pool, which has a waterfall, is 3 feet deep at the shallow end and 6½ feet at its deepest. It is in a 1,600-square-foot room designed with a Mexican tile floor, cathedral ceiling and walls of river rock, glass and cedar (the latter is said to help absorb moisture). The room -- equipped with heat and air-conditioning -- also boasts a half-bath and a sitting area.
