Pool House St. Louis

A Pool With it All

A pool house appears to float in one corner of a the pool, physically separating it into two wings - one with a shallow end for wading and one with a deep end with a diving board.

Fully Stocked Bar

The front of the pool house features a full bar that is shaded by a Brazilian hardwood pergola sitting atop limestone columns that match the pool’s border. The rest of the structure is constructed of the same brick and shingles as the main house for a seamless design aesthetic.

Water Feature

The pool also features an elegant fountain across from the bar.

Cooking Al Fresco

A fully-equipped outdoor kitchen was installed along the back wall of the main house amidst showy climbing hydrangea and showcases a brilliant granite countertop that matches the pool house bar.

Relax in Privacy

A raised bed was installed several feet above the pool deck to create privacy for the outdoor living area. Arborvitae and Norway spruce screens views from the street from the inside. The street-facing side is constructed of large granite boulders and low-growing shrubs.

Other Features

  • Urns planted with flowering annuals and perennials are placed throughout the space to add bright pops of color.
  • A red brick walk connecting the driveway to the front door is lined with low-growing vegetation such as impatiens, hostas, Thorndale ivy and medium-height boxwoods, China holly and azaleas. Japanese maple, honey locust and blue spruce trees were strategically placed to introduce soft, filtered into the library’s bay windows.
  • A pergola located in the side yard extends out from the master bedroom, creating a small, private outdoor space.

Challenges

  • A large pool with deep end and shallow end, a pool house with a bar and an outdoor kitchen all needed to all fit elegantly into a narrow, triangular-shaped lot bordered by two streets.
  • A variance was required from the City of Frontenac to allow the construction of the pool house.
  • Local ordinances require at least 20’ of green space between the street and hardscape.
  • The house was at a higher elevation than the backyard requiring significant regrading.
