Our client requested a serene space to get away, with integrated spaces for entertaining and relaxing. We wanted to preserve the natural character of the property and achieved this by incorporating the old-growth Coastal Live Oaks into the tranquil space. Meandering paths of flagstone and shale connect six outdoor rooms, including a Chinese-inspired gazebo, a fully furnished outdoor kitchen with a stone slab table, a natural meadow, and a Balinese pavilion complete with daybed and white curtains for daydreaming by the pond.

Blue Star Creeper between flagstone steps weaves through sentinel Live Oaks and spotlights Mountain Lilac and pure white Rockrose blossoms. Near the pond, native ferns lend themselves to the shady nature of the space.
