We took a family-friendly approach to Beverly Hills living. Emerald green lawns, soft yellow, and blue flower gardens, wooded glens, and even a croquet lawn evoke the elegant feeling of a country estate in Great Britain—it’s the perfect haven for a couple with four kids and busy lives.

We turned the steep slopes on this three-acre lot into an advantage, creating outdoor rooms such as the croquet lawn, swimming pool, country formal fountains, and herb gardens on successive levels, separated by a rose terrace, lawn steps, “Lutyen’s” stairs and orchards.

This terracing creates separation from the outside world, enhanced with a perimeter woodland. Rather than just look at the garden, the whole family can now play, explore, relax and restore here.
