Glamorous soirees are effortless at this poolside retreat where guests can swirl from indoor socializing to the poolside veranda and deck. It's a sleek, refreshing retreat by Atlanta-based Cruickshank Remodeling with high style for the lover of contemporary design.
Landscape architect Jason Brownlee designed this outside oasis to mirror the circular design of the Mediterranean-style villa but added modern touches to accentuate the view. This ebb and flow design features a reflective, infinity-edge pool in black onyx with terraced water features that allow overflow to be caught in spa basins below. The perimeter overflow system allows the pool to level flush against the travertine floor of the upper patio and helps to frame the view for a continuous water-to-water illusion from pool to lake.
This covered outdoor patio is certainly not lacking in atmosphere. A trio of chandeliers helps create a stunning ambiance at night, especially when the light reflects off the nearby water. The patio itself houses a fully equipped kitchen and grilling area, spacious dining table, lounge and fireplace. A swim-up bar offers a convenient spot to enjoy meals and drinks without leaving the pool.
Nothing says "party-ready" quite like this outdoor retreat complete with a swimming pool, full kitchen, fire table, dining table, lounging area, aluminum shade structure and flat-screen TV. Day or night, this space is the ideal setting for friends and family to gather.
With its own private deck and easy access, via telescoping glass doors, to an outdoor space, the master bedroom in the HGTV Smart Home 2013 offers a luxurious retreat. An oversized photograph draws the eye in the room's far corner and has a nice contrast to all the peacefulness without being jarring.
Integrating indoor and outdoor spaces is beautifully executed in this poolside retreat. An modern-style art installation is featured on the large white wall while a soft, blue sofa is an inviting place to unwind.
A traditional white pergola above the patio will one day be snaked by climbing roses, bringing additional shade to this poolside retreat. Stone steps lead to a cozy pool house that complements the Cape Cod-style home.
A cozy fireplace rests beneath a pergola with a pair of comfortable chaises nearby, creating a poolside retreat with rustic appeal. Mediterranean rural architecture inspired the design of this home, which is sited to take maximum advantage of its leafy lot.
Whether you want to take a dip in the pool or sit poolside in one of the green lounge chairs, this outdoor retreat offers an escape for everyone. A stone fire pit provides a bit of warmth when enjoying an evening outdoors, while open doors just off the cement patio provide quick access to the home's living room.
