While staying true to the architecture of the house, modern design elements were incorporated as well. The barbecue enclosure is veneered with limestone in a subway tile cut, while a trellis added to the garage adds shade over the outdoor kitchen area.

Pool parties are a great way to cool off on a hot day, but ensuring that everyone enjoys themselves without overdoing it can require a bit of planning ahead. Guests may forget to bring pool necessities like a towel, sunscreen, goggles and ear plugs, so it's best to have several on hand along with plenty of iced beverages.
