Classic White Poolhouse and Gray Stone Swimming Pool Deck
This poolhouse is located on a lower terrace behind the main home at the basement level. The property's natural slope presented a design challenge, but it also allowed for a large rear terrace. The adjacent pool features large gray flagstones.
The cabana-style structure is open on all four sides for maximum flexibility with indoor-outdoor entertaining. The goal of the design was to create a structure that integrates with both the main home and the landscape, and also offers easy outdoor entertaining during all seasons.

Traditional Cabana with Kitchen, Entertainment Space
While the design of this traditional cabana ties into the existing house, certain details lend it a more casual style. Columns that match the home's architecture give structure to the front of the cabana while contributing to its open feel. Meanwhile, lattice-work joining the columns is reminiscent of beach house design, as is the vaulted ceiling finished with white beadboard and exposed beams.
A stone fireplace, fully equipped outdoor kitchen and comfortable seating areas create an open-air entertainment space that's ready for year-round use. The chimney is built from the same fieldstone as the surrounding retaining walls. Bluestone flooring continues onto the poolside patio.
