One of the main reasons I love living where I do is because we have a pool. Living in the south without access to a pool is cruel and unusual punishment. We do have several months of access to a pool and I don't think we take it for granted, at least I don't.

Growing up in the Pacific Northwest I learned to swim in an indoor pool. Indoor pools weren't anything unusual, the best part of living in an area where there are so many indoor pools is that you can swim any day. Is it pouring down rain? No big, you can swim indoors.

An indoor pool is something we don't see in the south, much less in Shreveport.

That is up until I stumbled upon a large family home located on 7708 Creswell Rd in Shreveport sitting on a 1.5-acre lot. The real estate agent described it as a "show stopper". The real estate agent wasn't lying.

This house has a marble foyer, crystal chandeliers, imported marble fireplaces, Viking appliances, extended crown molding throughout plus custom built-ins in almost every room. Yes, it's epic.

What caught our attention? The very rare indoor pool with a fountain feature. I am convinced that that's the center point of this property.

Looking through photos of the listing you can see that the formal dining room has a wall of windows that lets you take in the beautiful view of the pool.

The indoor pool will cost you $950,000. However, you will get 7,733 square feet of beauty and you'll have a whole lot of living space with a 4 bedroom 4.5 bath. Of course, you'll have to be okay with a whole lot of mowing, you'll have 1.5 acres of mowing to knock out.

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.

LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean

With the infinite number of memes scattered across the internet, it's hard to keep track. Just when you've grasped the meaning of one hilarious meme, it has already become old news and replaced by something equally as enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for a majority of meme infections, and with the constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker hunted through internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases like Know Your Meme to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-replicating nature of these vague symbols can get exhausting, memes in their essence can also bring people closer together—as long as they have internet access.
