This cabana has a secret identity: By day, it's a poolhouse serving the pool, terrace and barbecue area. By night, it's a guest house! Its lap siding and metal framed doors connect it visually with the main house.
A beautiful Mediterranean terrace combines herringbone brick patios and walkways with turquoise reflecting pools. Pathways offer opportunities to take in the stunning trees and to reflect on the peaceful atmosphere across the grounds.
Doors from inside are framed by elegant yet casual damask curtains, softening the view of this outdoor terrace with rustic charm. Brick pavers are laid in a herringbone pattern to add interest underfoot. A long dining table surrounded by wicker chairs provides the perfect spot for entertaining in view of the pool.
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 pool garden terrace space while framing expansive and captivating views of the property beyond.
To complement the yard's natural slope, the landscape architects built a terraced travertine deck that descends towards the pool house. Grassy levels and plants add a touch of color along the way down.
With a rammed earth wall boasting a fireplace and waterfall feature, a cozy seating area with stylish furniture and an infinity pool overlooking views of the Sonoran Desert, the home's terrace embodies luxury at its finest.

A rustic stone and wood home contrasts against the sleek, contemporary pool. Modern white lounge chairs surround the pool, while native trees, grasses and perennials make the pool terrace feel at home in the context of the adjacent meadow.
Native plant material provides a buffer for the pool terrace from the adjacent entry drive. The lounge chairs and side tables are made from recycled milk jugs and are so durable they can be left out all year long.
The rear terrace is framed by stone balustrades with decorative urns, leading to an inviting swimming pool. The line of the terrace is continued with the use of a linear hedge to further define the garden's spaces.
