Nestled among natural rock outcroppings, this traditional pool cabana provides a year-round entertaining space for a Westchester, New York, family. The cabana is designed to complement the architecture of the shingle-style home.
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.
The property, located on the Thousand Islands in Clayton New York, overlooks the St. Lawrence River. Local stone was used throughout the landscape design; this patio was made from Lilac Bluestone pavers.
Even small urban spaces can incorporate water features. This Minneapolis backyard is only 27-by-64 feet, but the landscape plan by Southview Design carved out space for a water fountain created with slabs of stacked New York bluestone. The overall yard won an award from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.
Multiple water features combine on this Minnesota patio with a pergola: a water fountain, hot tub and an outdoor shower. The fountain, which has underwater lighting, and flooring are made of New York bluestone. The pergola is made of fiberglass columns, cedar timbers and wood beam rafters. The outdoor shower was added by Southview Design in the second phase.
A massive vented grill creates a great spot for cooking in this open-air entertainment space in New York. Multiple seating areas provide spots for dining and relaxing. The pool decking uses random-sized bluestone tiles that blend with the natural rock outcroppings.
A mix of seating creates areas for lounging and dining beside this pool in Chappaqua, New York. Ceiling beams, columns and lattice trim are traditional details that set the tone for a sophisticated space.
Multiple seating areas make maximum use of this open, yet private poolside cabana in New York. Traditional architectural details tie the structure to the main house nearby. The finished surfaces of the cabana are wrapped with Versatex, a weatherproof PVC material, to ensure that it stands up to the elements.
