Dover Pool House

Dover, MA

This pool and pool house complete and complement the campus created by the existing home and gardens on the property. The simple form of the white-painted clapboard building, capped by a cupola with clerestory windows, recalls New England’s classic farmhouse architecture, while its openness encourages contemporary indoor-outdoor living.

A pergola extending from folding glass doors provides shade to the alfresco dining area on the bluestone terrace, which extends around the pool—making it look like it floats in the grass. Inside, a seating area centers on a fireplace, while a bathroom, laundry room, changing area, and outdoor shower fill out the suite of amenities.
