Relax after a long day in this inviting pool with blue tile, pebble finish and lush landscaping. Large potted plants and mediterranean flowers create a lush, natural space, with privacy fence around the pool.
Natural wood shingles weather with age, becoming the lovely dove gray color seen on this home. Landscaping on the front slope provides privacy from the street, and a bench tucked off to the side makes a quiet garden retreat.
Mahogany-trimmed glass doors lead the way to a quiet patio oasis, complete with a small outdoor table and pair of chairs. Towering palm trees, bamboo and other tropical plants surround the space, providing a natural element of privacy.
A platform seating area built upon inlaid stonework flooring is home to a stone fire pit and bench. The bench is embedded with accent lighting that complements the fire's warm glow, while outdoor seating made of woven wicker complements the landscape's rich texture. In the distance, a tiered garden rich in topiary features and formed by sloping stone walls provides depth and privacy to the home's occupants.
This home's walkway and landscaping leading to the front door are inviting expressions of form and balance. Created by landscape architects C.B. Conlin, this space introduces the loveliness of the home's exterior, and its manicured greenery shows a formal and well-conceived design. Especially fetching are the stone planters that sit atop columns that repeat in other outdoor areas of the home, providing privacy and structural detail.
Since the home is situated on a corner lot, designers wanted to make the structure appealing from any angle, so they added a cozy side patio with fluffy landscaping and a stone retaining wall for aesthetics and privacy.
