Pools, patios and pool houses make for perfect outdoor living

In the summer, there’s no better place to entertain than the outdoors. John Matteson of Matteson Custom Homes is an expert in creating outdoor spaces that bring a homeowner’s vision to fruition. From infinity pools and spas to patios that beg for summer parties, these three featured areas will entice you to get outside.

Custom Designed Pool and Outdoor Patios

This home in Oaktree features a pool with a waterfall that comes off the patio roof and a 9-foot tiled spa with an infinity edge. Spend hours relaxing in the spa and watching television with surround sound during the summer and enjoy dual jets and other fun features. The waterfall is lit at night with LED lights, giving a lovely glow alongside the view of a wooded, natural lot.

“It’s designed for entertaining and luxury,” John says. “Custom and luxury living is a big mission of ours.”

Facing the pool are two outdoor patio spaces. The top-floor balcony has an open wood design right off the kitchen and dining areas of the home. It presents a fantastic view of the Oaktree National Golf Course, and below the balcony is a covered stone patio with another dining area. An iron spiral staircase connects the two.

Custom Designed Pool House

This 9,000-square-foot home located along Oaktree National Golf Club comes with a custom-designed pool house and golf aficionados workspace. The pool house features a bathroom, shower and sitting area, but also a space to park a golf cart and room for the homeowner to work on his golf clubs.

With reclaimed wood from a barn in Illinois, the pool house maintains a classic yet natural feel, especially with an Isokern fireplace attached to the exterior. The pool house also has a full outdoor kitchen complete with a wine fridge, sink area and more.

“You have everything you need to cook a five-star meal,” John says. “We like to take the vision of how the client lives and bring it to life. For instance, this homeowner loves tinkering with his golf clubs, so there’s a special place included for him.”
