One updated section of a 200-acre farm in New England features an infinity pool and lawn terraces by meant for modern living, just outside the contemporary home. Maryann Thompson Architect kept the mature beech, elm and sycamore trees.
To maximize the views from inside the house, the majority of the outdoor living space was placed on the street-side front yard. A pool was a must for the clients. The existing 60-year old Dragon Tree on site was carefully protected throughout construction and formed the inspiration around which the house and garden were designed. The tree shaped the garden and planting palette, while providing the depth and age a new home may lack.
Crisp white walls, sleek white sofas and a clean-lined coffee table create a contemporary look in this pool house. A sisal rug and aqua surfboard add coastal flair, giving the space some sea-inspired personality.
