Landscape architect Jason Brownlee designed this outside oasis to mirror the circular design of the Mediterranean-style villa but added modern touches to accentuate the view. This ebb and flow design features a reflective, infinity-edge pool in black onyx with terraced water features that allow overflow to be caught in spa basins below. The perimeter overflow system allows the pool to level flush against the travertine floor of the upper patio and helps to frame the view for a continuous water-to-water illusion from pool to lake.
Around the back of the house, a small patio overlooks the rolling California hillside. With another fountain and flowers all around, this quiet space is perfect for reading or simply enjoying the sunshine.
