View of Open Poolhouse and Swimming Pool

The pool and poolhouse is set away from the main house as a destination and its own outdoor room.

Poolhouse Displays Breathtaking View of Mountains

Designed by Wagner Hodgson Landscape Architecture, a wood-burning fireplace was cast in place of concrete with a board-form finish. Its covered position protects it from the summer winds in its Vermont setting.

Open Poolhouse With Mountain View

A large opening frames the view to the mountains from the arrival court at the main house. The poolhouse and pergola have one largely solid wall that lends privacy to the pool area with the exception of one large opening.

Contemporary Poolhouse

The poolhouse and pergola are integrated into one linear structure. Simple materials of copper siding, bluestone paving, cedar and board form concrete tie the design together.

Chic Poolhouse for Entertaining

Inside, the poolhouse contains a studio apartment and bathroom/changing room.

Entertainment Pergola

The large pergola provides plenty of room for entertaining. The fireplace takes the chill off of the cool summer evenings, while lighting adds drama to the space at night. The floor of the pergola is one step up from the pool deck to give it more prominence.
