NEW BUILD
COTSWOLD POOL ROOM

As part of the overall refurbishment of this Grade ll listed Cotswold house, WG Carter created a stunning pool and outdoor living complex that joins the buildings with the beautifully landscaped garden.

The main building was newly constructed using an exposed oak framed structure featuring oak trusses and purlins, with natural stone walls. The internal walls are lined with dry stone effect walling that is left exposed inside and a cedar shingle roof. The open fireplace has a raised stone hearth with a log store below.

The key feature is an 11m long glass wall that faces onto the garden. This stunning glass wall has 5 large full height glazed doors with solid oak beam dividers. Each door panel can be drawn back into a specially created wall pocket to give a completely open 11m frontage, bringing the outside in. To further create the integration of inside and out, the large module limestone flooring is finished flush with the external paving to create a sense of harmony.

The building includes a lounge area and a dining space with a fully equipped concealed kitchen. The pool house and the swimming pool are heated by a wood chip biomass boiler, which is located in a newly constructed plant room.

Outside there is an external dining area under an oak pergola with a separate outside kitchen fitted with a gas hob and sink. The kitchen is under an oak framed structure with a cedar shingle roof that is open to the garden yet protected from inclement weather.

The basement of the pool house contains the swimming pool plant as well as the mechanical and electrical plant for the pool building. The inside and outside lighting work together to further enhance the pool area complex.

Close to the swimming pool, there is an outside Jacuzzi and drench head shower with the changing rooms located in the pool house.
