With the coronavirus encouraging all of us to spend more time at home, the option of a backyard pool has become suddenly much more attractive. Fortunately, Coral Gables abounds with properties avec une piscine. To see what sort of a pool homes $2 million would buy today, we asked three real estate agents to submit one of their homes for sale in that price range – give or take a few hundred thousand dollars – with a place to go for a dip. Here is what they came up with, in different Gables locations.
