Exquisite landscaping really complements the design of this backyard, with luxury and elegance in mind. Fountains and manicured hedges line the walkway by the pool, and a covered area for entertaining rests in the background, complete with a bar, grill, outdoor fireplace and plenty of space to sit.
By using matching or complementary veneer materials to that of the home on this courtyard fireplace feature, it allowed it to blend harmoniously. The Spanish Cotto Terra Cotta is used as the mantle and hearth, with the antique brick veneer surrounding the fireplace box and the base of the view-port openings. However, it was the plantings that provided the critical contrast in colors and offered a serene atmosphere to this outdoor 'room'.
Although simple in design, the wrought iron crossing over the wall openings matched the wrought iron on the Juliet balconies.
This dramatic, elevated infinity pool and spa rest beside a cozy outdoor room with a fireplace and comfortable seating. The hillside entertaining space features dramatic, sweeping views of the Los Angeles landscape.
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.
Upon entry into the inner courtyard, dual fountains frame the walkway, providing highlight views from both the office and dining room. The entry fountains' location is fairly shady so the planting in this area needed to shade tolerant. Jasmine vines were used to provide fragrance.
This hillside project features a unique cantilevered infinity pool and spa. With views of nearly 180 degrees, the pool links the site with the vast open space beyond. A patio with a mini-outdoor kitchen offers convenience for entertaining.
