Summer Guest House on the Cove

Views of Long Island Sound from the pool were exquisite but could only be appreciated in the few months of swimming weather.  An ample pool house for entertaining with a ground floor bar, kitchen and seating area and an upper rooftop terrace with seating, a fire pit and glass railing was the answer, providing year round water view spaces.  The design concept centers the living space and its 12-foot high sliding doors on the existing pool with two 10-foot wings on either side balancing the mass.  The enclosed wing includes a guest bedroom and bath and the other wing an outdoor dining area with pergola.  The pool house and roof deck, 1,530 square feet in all, also feature surrounding terraces, a vegetable and flower garden and a wooden outdoor shower.
