Backyard Escape

Summer may be coming to an end, but we know these homeowners are making the most of their backyard escape. This pool house from our Harness Creek project provides a resort-like getaway without needing to leave the property. The fountain on the stone wall adds an extra touch of serenity to the pool and hot tub area. Equipped with an indoor sitting room, full indoor shower, and additional outdoor shower, this space has everything needed for a day by the pool. Multiple seating areas allow for easy entertaining when guests visit. The tranquility of the Harness Creek waterfront gives a stay-cation feel right at home.

This tranquil glass pool house is situated on the waterfront of Harness Creek in Annapolis. Homeowners desired a meditative reflection space that mirrored the same aesthetic as the main house it is detached from. The feature story in Home and Design Magazine, In Harmony, further details the connection of the pool house with the meadow and shoreline garden. Emphasizing nature and it’s elements was a major component in this project. The grasses and plant beds throughout create a “tidewater habitat.”

Each stone of the connecting bridge to the main house and pool were individually chiseled to achieve a hand-stacked look. Custom vanities, aqua blue tiled spa shower and closet, and a sitting area make up the interior of the space. Writer Sharon Jaffe Dan perfectly depicts this as “living proof that man and nature can coexist in harmony.”
