Beside the pool is a separate building made of hand-cut stone and standing seam copper roof to house a powder room, changing room, toys and pillows. In between the doors is also a outdoor shower to rinse off.
Natural woods and greenery surround a stunning sandstone swimming pool to create this private, contemporary outdoor oasis. The custom pool was raised off of the ground for a dramatic look and to accentuate the rim flow edge.
The design of this sandstone backsplash helps to bring a beachy feeling to the space. Since the guest house is host to many pool parties, the designers wanted the space to feel as if it were a home off the coast.
Water cascades down the sides of a sandstone architectural water feature, a showstopping element in this calm, native garden. The stand alone feature is built with vertical sandstone boulders, arranged in a circle within the small pond framed by smaller tumbled stones. Uplights at the base enhance the drama of the water feature.
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.
A small galley kitchen that is often used for a wet bar during the family's frequent pool parties leads from the interior of the pool house to the cozy sitting area that lies between the pool and the pool house. The concrete floors tie the space together, helping the transition from indoor to outdoor become a seamless one.
The pool house kitchen often serves as a wet bar and food prep station for the family's pool parties, so the small galley kitchen has been decked out in Ann Sacks tile and custom shelves. The tile backsplash gives the room a textured feel, while the open shelving helps keep the modern look of the space.
The original site of this home was piled high with nearly 200 cubic yards of sandstone. So instead of getting rid of it, landscapers incorporated the stone into the design, using it in walls, borders, benches and more!
The placement of this dry cast sandstone statuary is prominent on steps and near vibrant containers. The Native American "Nakoma" sculptural figure was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and reproduced by Nichols Bros.
