The size of the property in the rolling countryside outside New York City, as well as the scale and style of the old Colonial house, suggested a straightforward and generous pool supported by "outbuildings". New York architect James Crisp placed a 25-by-55-foot gunnite pool with a bluestone deck about 150 feet away from the main house. Behind it he added two structures: a white clapboard pool house for the homeowner's two sons, complete with soda fountain, and extra long built-in beds and a smaller pitched-roof building to house an in-ground spa. The result is a clean lined recreational compound tailored to the needs of every family member.
