Black-Tie Pool Party

When the time came to add more family space to their plain 1960's home, the owners decided to "amp up" the style, which would set the tone for future work. The family areas were brought right out to the well-used pool, and dressed up with paired pilasters, tall cornice and roof railing for a touch of resort, while allowing ample light and views. Softening the look is a curved deck supported by a stone-based arcade. Inside, an 11 ft. high great room is warmed by a stone fireplace and a deep grid of beams, while the lower level provides a media room and handy changing rooms for the pool.
