~ Does the set of the house have a wing that extends outward towards the pool, the way the matte painting does?

It absolutely does not. And that wing sits right where the beautifully designed patio ...

The more distant the object, and the shallower its depth compared to its distance from the viewer, the less important perspective becomes.
