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.

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.
