THE POOL HOUSE
AT BARK MEADOW FARM
As you drive up the hardwood tree lined lane and take a left at the gravel path you can almost hear the children laughing on the playground and half expect to bump into a mesmerized guest wandering from the sweet garden to the fenced pool. The Pool House at Bark Meadow Farm is truly an enchanting English inspired cottage with a charming secret garden enclosed by hedges and brimming with raised beds of flowering perenial favorites.
BRIGHT & AIRY
The crisp white pallet and soaring ceilings makes this cottage feel even grander than its already generous square footage. The open and airy kitchen is the perfect space to serve up festive fare for the whole group and with an abundance of french doors and picnic tables there is a very good chance the dinner party will move outside to enjoy the garden and meadow views.
One of my favorite pieces in this sweet space is the vintage bamboo tiki bar gifted from wife to husband. Another piece I adore is the the chinoiserie mirror with its bright pop of color which flouts an otherwise conservative pallet.
Although the interior of this happy, light-filled space offers a bit of respite and cheers your soul, the beauty of the gardens and grounds outside will make you want to stay for days … from the meticulously groomed playscape complete with adult chatting space to the perfectly pruned topiaries and rambling vines, there is something truly inviting about this little oasis in quiet Pomfret, Connecticut.
