The Pool House

Terrell Hills, Texas

The Historic Pool House is part of a larger estate property in Terrell Hills Texas and was originally designed by the turn of the century progressive Architect -Atlee B. Ayres.  Found in a state of great disrepair, the original Cabana and Bathhouse was almost considered to be unsalvageable. It was the keen interest of the current owners to restore this wonderful landscape centerpiece. The restoration gently pushes the Cabana into the 21st century by offering outdoor use including an outdoor kitchen and small sleeping quarters offering vaulted spaces hidden within the original structure.
