Outdoor Space

Platte City Oasis

Various entertainment zones create a complete at-home resort experience in this custom outdoor project. The infinity edge of the pool—stretching more than 80 linear feet—is the largest in Kansas City. Splashing into the crystal-blue water is a specially designed, 82-linear-foot waterslide. The pool area also features a sun deck with laminar water jets for sunbathing and a basketball hoop.

A custom-built pergola with more than two miles of metal tubing connects space from the house to the covered outdoor kitchen, providing additional shaded places to dine or relax. Under rooftop protection, the outdoor kitchen offers space for grilling, watching sports or resting. With built-in heaters, the second-tier covered area provides three-season lounge space. The adjacent fire pit is yet another cozy atmosphere for evening time or cool-weather enjoyment.

The project’s large-scale undertaking made it susceptible to weather-related delays and seasonal changes; fortunately, the team managed to complete the pool and outdoor living areas just in time for the homeowners to fully enjoy them during the summer.
