Outdoor Entertaining Area St. Louis

Highlights & Features

To create a cohesive outdoor living space utilizing the existing pool and covered porch, our Creve Coeur customers requested a free-standing pool house with a fireplace and television.

A Pool House for All Season

The new pool house was positioned on the opposite side of the yard from the garage to create a courtyard environment.

Increased Entertainment Seating

Ample seating is positioned underneath breezy ceiling fans, recessed lighting and in view of a large flat-screen television for catching the game or a movie al fresco.

Expanding Footprint

The footprint was also extended with a new natural limestone retaining wall to provide additional seating in a cozy niche.

Comfortable Outdoor Living

The roofed outdoor space is open on three sides with a handsome floor-to-ceiling limestone fireplace on the fourth.

Custom Designed Concrete

A stamped and dyed concrete overlay was applied to the existing pool deck pavement that seamlessly blended the surfaces of the old and new areas.

Other Features

  • Enlarged covered porch with circular edge to mirror the pool
  • New limestone flagstone veneer along the perimeter to compliment the pool coping
  • Privacy screen added in between properties
  • Preservation of existing irrigation alongside addition of new valves, wires and lines
  • New plantings and LED landscaping lighting

Challenges

  • Creve Coeur building codes required that the pergola be connected to the house and the pool house to be at least 10 feet away – the exact opposite of the original design intent
  • A larger hardscape footprint meant that a new drainage system needed to be installed
  • New electricity and water lines to the new kitchen and bar area required extensive rerouting

    “Dear Bob Wilhelm and the Poynter crews,
    When I got home and Peggy showed me how you guys had bent that rock for our bridge with your bare hands, well we just had to send you these for a job well done!”

    LARRY & PEGGY
  • “The first and best decision we made for this pool project was calling Bob, your Landscape Architect. What a breath of fresh air for the project. He saw through all the details and we just love our pool!”

    CHESKA, TOWN & COUNTRY
  • “Thank you for the great job you and your team did on our outdoor lighting. We could not believe how well manicured they left our beds after trenching to install the lighting.”

    JOEL OF CHESTERFIELD
  • “We are very pleased with the fine job you did providing lighting for the front of our home. It is a dramatic change.”
