Designer Ann Nicholson admits she borrows inspiration from unlikely places—Edgemont, a historic Albemarle residence possibly designed by Thomas Jefferson; a pool house in the Hamptons belonging to designer Tory Burch. But the pool at Lowfields Farm in Fluvanna, where she resides with her husband? That was all her. Installed by Charlottesville Aquatics, the double lap pool respects Nicholson’s design aversions (“I intensely dislike things that aren’t symmetrical,” she says). Accordingly, two sets of stairs balance each side and lead to the stylish (yet uniform) poolhouse, with views of the 250-acre property beyond.
