This home is divided into three levels, linked both through the interior and through external stairwells and terraces. The property is surrounded by mature palms and lush landscaping, creating privacy for the lower levels.
The home's front yard and driveway have subtle, but compelling landscaping. Bricks carve out a circle in front of the house and garage. Terraced garden beds accompany a flight of steps down to a lower patio.
Built-in bench seating lines the perimeter of this lower-level outdoor terrace, which is almost level with the Malibu beach. Gray tile is offset by outdoor fabrics in cheery, colorful stripes. A fire bowl offers warmth for breezy nights.
Fieldstone clads the lower levels of this four-story Old Greenwich, Conn., home built in 1895. The home is situated to enjoy a sweeping lawn and breathtaking seascapes with open and covered waterfront terraces and porches.
Wanting to create a sanctuary for their clients' family, TLC Gardens outfitted this backyard with a custom kitchen, pool, spa and even a putting green. Landings from the terrace to the lower deck help match the home's size and scale.
