It’s styled in a 1950s American design and the floor-to-ceiling windows give impressive views over London.

The Embassy Gardens development looks out across the River Thames to Chelsea and Kensington and is just a 10-minute walk to Vauxhall tube and overground station.

The first daredevil swimmers were seen using the sky pool at the end of May this year.

And anyone brave enough to take the plunge would have had uninterrupted views to the ground from the 10th floor.

The pool holds 400 tons of water – and it’s got some of the best views in the capital.

Brits practising their butterfly stroke will be able to see for miles around, with the billion-dollar US Embassy, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye all within sight.

The pool was shipped 5,000 miles from Colorado in the US.

The pool though might not be everyone’s idea of fun with some Twitter users saying just looking at it made them feel queasy.

One Twitter user said: “My hangover is starting to kick in and the thought of swimming in a sky pool does make my stomach drop.”

Another wrote: “It’s not even 6am and I already have tonight’s nightmare all set up!”

And one tweeted: “This is absolutely just a scene from the opening of a disaster movie about earthquakes, right?”

The flats at the development start at £600,000, while the penthouse suite is worth a whopping £5million.
