Break Out the Speedos! See 10 Amazing Indoor Pools

- — When it comes to over-the-top real estate amenities, having your own yoga studio, football field, or heliport can earn you some pretty serious bragging rights among your friends. Mention "indoor swimming pool" and your friends will love you even more.

Perhaps the image that springs to mind is a warm, enticing space where a deep blue body of water can satisfy the need to swim a few laps, or simply serves as a place to relax -- without ever leaving your home.

Found in homes for sale from $49 million all the way down to a few million, these magnificent pools in these magnificent homes offer a little of both: Great places for R&R or getting in some cardio.

But please, let's not think about the water bill.

It features 12 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, a dining room that seats 20, not to mention a gym, library, 2-car garage and massive, lodge-like indoor pool.
