Laps of Luxury: Hearst Castle's Neptune Pool Opens
Hearst Castle’s Neptune Pool is currently being filled after more than 4 years of renovation.
By the request of W.R. Hearst, architect, Julia Morgan designed Neptune Pool to be 104 feet long, and range from 58-95 feet in width. In the pool’s entirety, it holds 345,000 gallons of water. The original construction spanned from 1924-1936.
To preserve the work of Julia Morgan during the renovation, a great attention to detail was needed. Workers replaced 9,000 square feet of broken tile with new tile from the original quarry in Vermont.
