The Pool House

The pool house in Asti. This separate building anchors the pool and gives a place to sit by the fire, barbeque, sleep (upstairs) or use the jacuzzi. There is also a bathroom with a lovely shower for overnight guests, etc. It is wonderful in the summer for shade when temperatures in the upper Alexander Valley can peak around 100 degrees. But also in the winter because of the fireplace and shelter.

A cool place to sit in the heat of the summer. The pool is to the right.

Above, the stairway leading up to a small bedroom. Only for the adventurous as there isn't any heat. It is like sleeping in a treehouse. The bathroom is to the left at the bottom of the stairs, the spa to the right.

The spa bathroom waiting with robes and slippers.

The spa overlooking the neighbor's vineyard (Rodney Strong) in the Fall.

Pin It!

I have to admit, I'm totally jealous of this pool house and everything about your wine country house. I look at the pictures and dream of what it would be like to stay at a place this nice. You have done a beautiful job decorating and I think it should be in a magazine!

The pool house, as well as your home, is absolutely beautiful. You have the perfect weather to enjoy the outside.
