The 82-foot-long pool gets quite a lot of use by Jeff and Millie, and especially by the kids, who are both on the local swim team.

Hitting the right combination of real estate ingredients; view, space, light, and pool, the house fit perfectly in the Casa plan.
In addition to the beautiful setting, guests can enjoy an on-site restaurant and swimming pool, and local activities such as golf and surfing.
The magnificent grounds provide ideal views of LA beyond.
The pool continues inward past the guest wing and runs beneath a small concrete bridge separating the public and private spaces. Steely credits contractor Mike Lynch with helping to engineer this feat of site-poured concrete.
In central Argentina, the province of La Pampa is dominated by vast, grassy plains whose fertile soil supports myriad farms and ranches. Stretching out in all directions, the flatlands resemble an ocean in its sheer horizontality. When professional polo player Nacho Figueras—a champion of the sport and a longtime Ralph Lauren model—enlisted architect Juan Ignacio Ramos of Estudio Ramos to build a stable for 44 polo horses, the architect was sure to incorporate the region’s meditative flatness into the design.

Homeowners Erik and Kelli Petrik can open the wheel-hung, 10-foot-tall shutters on the second floor with the push of a handle.  The panels cost approximately  $75 per square foot to fabricate.

Frequent Dwell photographer Roger Davies snapped this concrete block dream of a house, equipped with its very own pool. Via  desire to inspire. (Pin)
From the 1940s through the late 1960s, Arts & Architecture was  the unofficial headquarters of California’s nascent modernist movement. It spearheaded the Case Study House Program, which  produced some of America’s  greatest residences. VKG furniture was used for many of the houses, and appears in photos shot by Julius Shulman, as seen above.
The modern house responds to the local landscape in an exciting new way.

Seen from the guesthouse, the new home touches every corner of the property without overwhelming its natural beauty.
A double-sided fireplace serves as a way to unite the screened-in porch to the house’s main, open-plan living area.
Architect Burton Baldridge’s design for a house in Austin features a cantilevered upper volume with a gabled profile that was in part inspired by the work of Dutch architects MVRDV. It juts out over the patio, outfitted with chaise longues by Harbour Outdoor and Adirondack chairs by Loll.
The pool juts out perpendicularly from the main house; the land was bulldozed to become level with the concrete pavers.
The old barn's foundation, re-stacked by a local stonemason, was reused as a rustic retaining wall for the pool area. The property also came with a corn crib and blacksmith shop as old as the barn, seen behind the pool, which are both used for storage now. St. Tropez chaises from Kingsley-Bate line the pool.
In the summer months, the pool provides a welcome respite from the heat.
