Despite being just a couple miles from the downtown core, this home feels decidedly rural. Its streamside setting provides an opportunity for urban homesteading, with the homeowners maintaining a vegetable and herb garden as well as raising small livestock. The low-maintenance landscape complements the contemporary residence with geometric forms, but uses natural materials and native or drought-tolerant plants to blend the home into its setting.
Sometimes the best solution requires breaking down some barriers. This screened porch was pushed past the house's side wall to ensure the roomy expanse the homeowners were looking for. And it looks perfect!
This amazing landscape project for old friends was an opportunity to design everything outside of the house. The tiered pool includes shear descent waterfalls, diving platform, deck jets and stepping stones across the water. A formal garden in the front yard features bluestone paver walkways. A fire pit by the bay sets the stage for relaxing evenings. A synthetic turf panel by the house provides a convenient relief spot for the family dog. Custom designed brick walls and gate screen the trash cans and provide access to the Owner's brother's house next door.
