East Moriches, 17 Briana Ct., $869,000
The weather won't get in the way of your workout at this Briana Court home, where the heated lap pool is housed in a climate-controlled solarium for year-round enjoyment.

Woodsburgh, 22 Willow Rd., $6.78 million
The owners of this Willow Road Colonial built a lap pool in the basement so their children could enjoy four seasons of swimming, says agent Evangelia Boudourakis of Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty. There was an unexpected bonus, Boudourakis says, as the family discovered they also loved doing water aerobics in the lap pool, calling it "a refreshing way to work out."
Weather permitting, you can choose to swim outdoors -- in the gunite, saltwater, heated pool on the 1.09-acre property. The grounds feature bluestone patios, a four-car garage and a paved area that can be used as a basketball court or a hockey rink. The eight-bedroom home, custom built in 2001, has nine full bathrooms, three half-baths, two kitchens and a formal living and dining room.

Massapequa Park, 184 South Park Dr., $499,000
You can look out a wall of windows while swimming laps in the pool at this South Park Drive home.
