Private Residence Pool House
Leonard Masonry completed an addition, extensive site work and a beautiful new pool house that mimics the historical design of this private residence, built in 1921. The existing home is composed mainly of brick with limestone frieze trim, arches, pilasters, brick terraces with stone rails, and slate roofing. It was vitally important to the owner that the new and old blend perfectly. To achieve this look, Leonard Masonry installed a brick veneer with limestone window sills, brick soldier and limestone key headers at all openings, and a limestone panel base.
The pool house incorporates carved and profiled limestone that matches the dining room patio entrance to the main house. Detailed carvings under the roofline are identical to those found at the main residence. Fluted, tapered columns separate the openings into the pool house. The two-way tapers were difficult to carve, tapering from the ground up and from left to right. On the east side, stone balustrades guide visitors from a brick-paved terrace down into the yard, while the west side leads to the pool.
