A backyard featuring a fun pool for the kids, but with an adult feel..The solution was to craft a vessel that would sit within the multiple terraced gardens, that was created with dry stacked stone. The first challenge was getting into the backyard with minimal disruption, this would require importing soil to fill in areas creating ramps over walls and developed areas.
The Mediterranean home exterior sets the tone for this paradise backyard, complete with a pool and spa. Palm trees and other tropical plants surround the space, contrasting the bright blue pool water for a stunning view of vivid colors.
Everything about this gorgeous backyard, patio and pool was designed to evoke the East Coast's Hamptons. Pergolas provide poolside shade, while cozy furnishings and blue accents infuse the outdoors with a style all their own.
At the center of this luxurious private estate garden is a relaxing swimming pool, which features a sun shelf and an attached spa surrounded by bullnosed limestone coping and dimensional limestone paving. The stone pool terrace is lined with boxwood hedges to balance the soft textures of the trees and flowering shrubs. A custom timber beam pergola is anchored by stone piers and a low stone wall that defines the terrace space.
Designed by Wagner Hodgson Landscape Architecture, a wood-burning fireplace was cast in place of concrete with a board-form finish. Its covered position protects it from the summer winds in its Vermont setting.
Contemporary Pool With White Stone Entrance and Wall
This sunny backyard pool area features a white stone walkway and steps that lead the way through a contemporary wall constructed from slabs of matching stone in various sizes. Several tropical and succulent plants decorate the outdoor space, adding a beautiful natural touch.
The poolhouse offers luxuriously comfy features, including a high-end kitchen with a martini sink. Storm shutter doors tucked inside the arches drop down with a push of a button. The pool house was built only 2.5’ from the waters edge creating an unusual situation with a venial pool. To make sure the pool wall was properly supported, a newly constructed block wall supports that edge. The three main arches facing the pool hide screens and shutters to block the sun or wind.
