By providing the tranquil sound of running water close to the backyard loggia, it added another element to further enjoy the surrounding space and the vast ocean views beyond.
Taking advantage of the 12" raised patio, it allowed for a small, but elegant water feature to be placed in just the right location to be enjoyed by the dining table.
A wood pergola provides welcome shade for this raised patio, which houses lounge chairs for enjoying the great outdoors. The patio's stone walls are softened by hanging plants and thoughtful landscaping at every turn.
This sleek home makes use of its outdoor space in several ways: A patio extends off the lower floor, with glass doors folding back to connect it with the interior. There is also a grassy upper yard and several balconies enclosed by glass railings.
In an effort to maintain the intimacy of this wooded backyard, a space with two levels of entertaining was created. The upper screened-in porch is connected to the lower flagstone patio with large fieldstone steppers. These two tiers seem to be woven into the mature landscape. A dry creek was also installed to provide better drainage.
Beds of drought tolerant shrubs and ornamental grasses, sand finished concrete pavers, statuary, a raised deck for lounging and other features bring a zen garden feel to this private pool and patio area.
A spacious patio presents several features as rivals for your attention, including a brick and cement fire pit, fountain garden sculpture, raised garden bed, ornate patio furniture, and an outdoor kitchen.
Guests will be clamoring for an invitation to pool parties at this incredible space. Multiple levels make cozy gathering spots all around the patio. A raised hot tub is the perfect companion to the stunning pool.
