This home is situated on a steep slope overlooking a reservoir. To make the outdoor spaces more accessible, landscape designers terraced patios, gardens and the pool. For color, perennials, flowering shrubs and roses were planted in a palette of blue, pink and white.
An alternating step, ships-ladder connects family and guests to spectacular views from the tower’s “look-out”. On a clear day, the view stretches thirty miles across the New York City reservoir system.
Nestled in the hills of northern California, this eclectic and truly iconic home boasts a stunning view of the Crystal Springs Reservoir.
