Designer Mary DeWalt selected a color scheme for this home--blue, green and brown--that she brought outdoors for masterful effect. As seen here at dusk, the soft beige hardscape surrounding the turquoise blue pool displays a serene aura against the blue sky and verdant landscaping, the same feeling that is imbued indoors.
Despite the tight dimension of the site, a small lap pool and spa were designed into the terrace. There is a waterfall feature at the end into the spa. Both pool and spa are covered by an automatic cover that helps keep the heat in.
Due to the restrictions of redeveloping lakefront, you are not allowed to encroach any further than the previous building footprint with any structures. This means that the retaining walls and pool had to fit within the previous house footprint.
This backyard pool is cool and inviting, but the spa is available if you need a hot soak. The home is constructed with a classic Florida keystone facade and the copper seam roof is just beginning to patina.
A backyard featuring 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 was created with dry stacked stone. The first challenge was getting into the backyard with minimal disruption, this would require importing soil to fill in areas creating ramps over walls and developed areas.
Outdoor seating surrounds an infinity pool and spa in this oceanfront oasis by designer Madelyn Simon. Low hedges provide a level of privacy around the stone deck without obstructing the spectacular view.
Thanks to its sleek, streamlined design, this private pool blends seamlessly with the horizon. In turn, the owners can see for miles as they swim a few laps, soak in the spa or lounge while the sun sets in the distance.
Inspired by the Louisiana architecture of A. Hays Town, this project replicates a Louisiana courtyard in the midst of this creekside estate. A pool is the centerpiece of the design and is anchored by an antique brick-clad spa. Boxwood hedges, ferns and azaleas add life to the space.
