The landscape plan for this home is especially breathtaking at night, as well-placed lighting illuminates all of the special features included outdoors. The unique pergola, pool, stone fireplace and dining and lounging areas have an ethereal quality — as if guests were being entertained on a hillside villa overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
Tucked into the hillside and encircled by trees, this outdoor space by designer Elizabeth Przygoda-Montgomery seems like something out of a dream.

This South Florida home boasts multiple outdoor entertainment areas in one cohesive design. Neutral stone pavers cover patios and walls to create a harmonious feel throughout the three distinct spaces seen here. A sunken seating area in the pool is framed by the same stone material used in the coping around the pool's edge, helping to connect and define the spaces. Rough-hewn stone veneers are carried throughout the covered lounge and kitchen areas.
A developed backyard with limited access and a client wanting a fun pool for the kids, but with an adult feel..The solution was to craft a vessel that would sit within the multiple terraced gardens, that were created with dry stacked stone.
