This home in San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico, opens up to the backyard, creating an easy flow between the home's interior and exterior living space. The back patio leads to a pristine pool, built around an existing tree which appears to float on the water's surface.
Designer Scott Cohen of The Green Scene varies the flooring materials of this backyard patio to add visual interest as well as to help create separate outdoor rooms. The covered seating area features Sweetwater flagstone, while stone-textured concrete is used in the lounging area beside the pool's Baja shelf.
A raised feature walls brings the soothing sound of water to the contemporary swimming pool. The pool has a large tanning shelf designed for grandchildren to play and adults to sunbathe. An open pavilion is the perfect spot to relax poolside and stay out of the sun.
A variety of outdoor rooms invite opportunities for social gathering and entertaining in this welcoming backyard. A cabana with a grill and bar serves the outdoor dining area and is accented by the soft sounds of a limestone wall fountain. The swimming pool has a sun shelf and spa, which is surrounded by a limestone patio.
At the center of this luxurious private estate garden is a relaxing swimming pool, which features a sun shelf and an attached spa surrounded by bullnosed limestone coping and dimensional limestone paving. The stone pool terrace is lined with boxwood hedges to balance the soft textures of the trees and flowering shrubs. A custom timber beam pergola is anchored by stone piers and a low stone wall that defines the terrace space.
The outdoor space of this home provides a seamless indoor/outdoor living. Above the outdoor entertainment space, a master bathroom patio on one side of the house provides privacy for the homeowners, while the outdoor living space eases the transition between the spaces. On the patio, a swimming pool with three bubbling water features and an eight foot shallow shelf and steps down to the pool give kids a safe place to play and seating at various water heights creating an outdoor space that is perfect for entertaining and relaxing.
