Decks and Patios by Deep River Partners

Deep River Partners' Richard Sherer and Nicholas Blavat show off pool terraces bathed in sunlight and rustic fire tables.

Poolside living is enhanced by a pergola that is artfully crafted, while promoting a defined setting around the sunken pool terrace. The airy lattice structure diffuses the sunlight and allows the breezes to flow. (Photo: Courtesy Deep River Partners).

A rocking porch on the rear of this Shingle- style home provides a place to relax while taking in lake views, and the pergola entry features a beach shower for rinsing off sand before entering the pool deck. The flower garden softens the hardscape where Adiron­dack chairs surround the circular fire terrace

This home wraps the outdoor living areas and swimming pool terrace, which is inten­tionally sited to be bathed in southern light and nestled into the hillside. Retaining walls provide perimeter definition and privacy, while the pool creates a focal point and is surrounded by a range of amenities: a pool deck, upper sun terrace, outdoor kitchen, screened porch, and hot tub.

This home’s modern rustic styling and rhythm of windows provide the backdrop for outdoor living areas. Descend the stairs to seating and dining spaces on a raised, stone-clad terrace where a fire table creates a focus for the seating lounge. Bollard lighting marks the perimeter, which looks out to the lake.
