Pool & Pool House

Pool & Pool House
Stowe, Vermont

This mountain top residential site offers spectacular 180 degree views towards adjacent hillsides. The client desired to replace an existing pond with a pool and pool house to be used for both entertaining and family use. The open site is adjacent to the driveway to the north but offered spectacular mountain views to the south. The challenge was to provide privacy at the pool without obstructing the beautiful vista from the entry drive. Working closely with the architect we designed the pool and pool house as one modern element closely linked by proximity, detailing & geometry. In so doing, we used precise placement, careful choice of building & site materials, and minimalist planting. Existing trees were edited to open up selected views to the south. Rows of ornamental grasses provide architectural delineation of outdoor space. Understated stone steps in the lawn loosely connect the pool to the main house.

Architect: Michael Minadeo + Partners

It's nice that some places don't make to a slave to those kinds of rules.

The most popular pool size that we do is 18' x 36', but this one is 18' x 45', a little better for lap swiming.

What's the roof covering? - This looks like half pergola, half pool house. What is the roof covering for the enclosed portion. Could I purchase the plans for this design?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to 8 Tips for Pool House Perfection
Build in ample storage. Pool gear can be cumbersome, and it has a tendency to accumulate. Layer in shelving, cabinets and functional furnishings, such as storage benches, to keep your pool house free of clutter.
