While Joe Weichselbaum didn’t initially hire J. Tortorella Pools to construct the outdoor pool at his Water Mill home when he started building it 15 years ago, the semi-retired engineer now “would never use anyone else.”
“John and his team have become my ‘go to guys’ for both my pool and all our outdoor living and entertainment space,” says Joe who helped design the 14,000-square foot home where he lives with his family. Rebuilding and repairing the original 20’ x 40’ gunite pool is just one of several projects Joe has since entrusted to Tortorella—indoors and out.
Outside, the Tortorella team designed and built the expansive retaining walls and walkways that comprise the estate as well as the spa and fountain that complement the outdoor pool. They also designed and built the pergola adjacent to the home’s sunken Har-Tru tennis court and installed thousands of square feet of stone work around the property.
Indoors, Tortorella built a massive stone fireplace in the living room as well as designed and built a spa with hot tub and 14’ x 30’ rectangular pool. Both the indoor and outdoor pools and spas are maintained year-round by Tortorella service teams and heated with propane provided by J.Tortorella Heating & Gas.
