A fabulous pool house design can not happen with out the creation of a detailed,  intelligent plan. Our professionals have a passion for creating great pool house designs.  Their goal is to bring to life the dreams of the homeowner and to offer clever solutions to specific lifestyle needs. The end result is always fabulous and life changing. It of course encompasses many factors, but the most critical being a personal  plan that is custom to the homeowner. Everyone knows a pool house is the ultimate in luxury and convenience, but it’s also a significant long term investment. This is why your new pool house  should be not only thrilling, but nothing short of a dream come true.  

After three decades of construction, and hundreds of beautiful pool house projects, we’ve earned the respect and reputation for being one of the best pool house builders in the Charlotte area. Here are a few recent pool houses we’ve completed in Montibello, Quail Hollow and Baxter Village:


The Majestic Montibello Escape  



This pool house in Montibello evokes feelings of a carefree, tropical vacation. Nestled between the pool and a wooded lot it’s the perfect spot for dinner and conversation with friends, respite from the sun and watching the kids play. The homeowners choice of materials, for this pool house, are both stylish and functional.  Embellishments include quartz kitchen counters, a Bull grill, sleek ceiling fans and a large 65” flatscreen for movies and game time. The ceiling is vaulted and is finished with a 6” tongue and groove plank. The shiplap walls add charm, the 10” white columns complete the look. Sonos speakers were strategically placed for optimum enjoyment. The roof was designed for breezy open gables at each end. The ceiling and walls are stained in with fresh creamy white to match the color of the existing  nearby porch. The look of this amazing outdoor getaway is completed with lush plantings of boxwoods, blooming hydrangeas, hollies and tropical grasses. 


Fantastic Quail Hollow Hide-a-Way

This homeowner had an existing pool but longed for an outdoor living area and space to entertain friends. The ideal environment would also meet the needs of wet, hungry poolgoers. After several meetings, our designer at Coogan’s Design-Build created a perfect plan. The end result was nothing short of spectacular and the homeowners are delighted with their new pool house (shown above).  

This Quail Hollow pool house offers a luxurious setting for dinner parties, a place for swimmers to change out of wet suits and best of all, a haven for homeowners to recharge after a busy week.    

The cabana is graced with a hip style roof, tray ceiling and 10” round columns. The brick on the 7’ wide fireplace was chosen to perfectly match the existing brick on the home. It is flanked on either side with custom crafted cedar cabinets  providing needed kitchen storage for the owners. A Bull Angus, grill, smoker, refrigerator, stainless sink and granite counters rival the comforts of an indoor kitchen in this stylish escape. Music, lighting and the sound of splashing water offer a dramatic setting for dinner parties. Azaleas, hydrangeas and ornamental trees are added to the surrounding landscape for seasonal color. 


Baxter Village Retreat

This amazing pool house retreat began with one mission in mind: the homeowners wanted to work with only one contractor for their pool and pool house project. Coogan’s fit the bill and after several brainstorming sessions we began working on their dream of a private backyard oasis. This client had a massive property which provided limitless opportunity for creating their dream. The goal for this pool / pool house design was the construction of a beautiful outdoor living space, pool, and pool house which would provide optimum entertainment and minimal maintenance. 

This Baxter Village pool house is 35’ long by 22’ wide  and incorporates an amazing swim up bar, restroom, outdoor shower and lounging area. The design includes an open gable roof and vaulted tongue in groove ceiling. The stain, brick and windows all mirror the look of the existing home.  The custom fireplace is finished in ‘Silas Lucas’ and the stone is ‘Tennessee Fieldstone’. The addition of infrared ceiling heaters enable the homeowners to enjoy the open air part of this living space even on chilly nights. An outdoor shower was placed on the east side of the pool house in close proximity to the bathroom providing the children an easy place to rinse before and after swimming. ‘Blue Dunes Cosmos’ granite was chosen for the outdoor kitchen counter with swim up bar which stays busy with hungry swimmers. ‘Steel Gray’ granite was chosen for the indoor counters in a leather finish. Canned lighting ceiling fans and carefully placed speakers throughout the pool house complete the feel of this luxurious space. The finished product is stunning. The home owners are over the top thrilled with their pool house and swimming pool. Their new tropical paradise feels like an endless vacation right in their own backyard. The only regret they had is that they didn’t start years ago.
