Old-World Opulence

Outdoor Areas

Photography by Creative Revolver

Heavily influenced by the traditional French country style, this poolscape fuses classic features with fun flair for a timeless appeal. The entrance to the pool is outfitted with a spacious sun shelf and two bubblers to make wading more enjoyable. Raised features on both ends of the rectangular pool design contribute to the poolscape’s sense of symmetry – the spa and its spillway deliver on luxurious comfort, while directly across the pool, three spillways flow for an aesthetically pleasing finish. This outdoor area is also punctuated by a series of playful elements, including deck jets and four urns with fire balls that add warmth and ambience. Just feet away from the pool, a covered pool house offers a shaded respite – here, features such as the outdoor dining area, large archways, wall-mounted lanterns, and multi-colored stacked stone lend to the European feel of the space. Ornate iron railing surrounding the backyard is the cherry on top of this area’s design.
