The homeowner's love for modern design is merged with the native forest and grass meadows of the Midwest on this 24-acre Ohio property. Designer Nick McCullough created lush mixed borders that transitioned between the dark modern pool house and the classic Georgian architecture of the brick main house. Plants with dramatic foilage, including 'Black Magic' elephant ears, add to the modern look. This project won a 2015 Association of Professional Landscape Designers award.
The modern design is continued in the bathroom of this pool house with the clean lines of the vanity and toilet, as well as the elegant mirror that covers the back wall and makes the space feel large. The walls in this space are covered in vinyl to make them water resistant, while also adding a beachy, sandstone-esque texture to the space.
Naturally, this luxury property comes with its own pool house. Tucked away in the far corner of the backyard, the structure uses clean lines, large overhangs and wood paneling to complement the main house. A large shaded porch with several chairs invites the owners to lounge or nap after swimming a few laps.
The emphasis of this design is on the access to the pool, so designers installed a sliding barn door created from Oregon reclaimed lumber to hide the entertainment center when it is not in use. The wood and metal of this apparatus complement the industrial style the family desired.
Clean, straight lines characterize this modern backyard, which features an angular pool and hot tub with a dark-stained wood deck. Concrete walkways surround swaths of green grass, and a small structure with a pergola is a convenient pool house.
This traditional, white pool house features Pennsylvania bluestone inside and around the large, modern swimming pool. The indoor space offers a kitchen, living and dining area, and access to the yard, with the pool designed in a blue, pebble finish.
This beautifully-designed, traditional pool house offers a private getaway just steps from the main home. With wrap-around Pennsylvania bluestone and long, pebble finish pool and hot tub, guests are invited to relax poolside in lounge chairs, or step inside the pool house and enjoy views from the folding glass windows.
Just off the pool area, a set of stairs leads up to the pool house. Underneath the pool house is a sitting area with modern furniture that gives the homeowners a great space to entertain with the perfect view of the pool.
