It’s summer and all the thoughts are about vacations, beaches, sea and pools. That’s why today instead of a usual home we are sharing a beautiful and harmonious poolside home. This off-the-grid house that is little more than a decked campsite—albeit with a roof—includes a swimming pool for a family that loves to enjoy the elements. Affectionately named Camp Baird, the home is located on a 165-acre parcel near a campsite the owners had visited for years. Drought-resistant native plantings were incorporated into the property. A modern interpretation of the traditional dogtrot home, Camp Baird comprises two cabins placed along an L-shaped orientation. An elongated, solar-heated lap pool runs the length of the south-facing side, alongside an expansive ipe deck that measures nearly 1,600 square feet. Though the home includes a full bathroom, there’s an outdoor shower for bathing. In line with the family’s active lifestyle, the kitchen is also situated outside; to the south of it, a screened-in area of the porch, clad in ipe and black fiberglass mesh, serves as the impromptu dining area. The interior décor is super simple, clad with natural wood and absolutely uncluttered. Every room is totally opened to the outdoors as the owners love to spend time there. I especially love the sunroom décor – it’s a glass volume opened to outdoors and even if the weather is bad, you’ll feel like outdoors there. The 82-foot-long pool gets quite a lot of use, especially by the kids, who are both on the local swim team.
