The homeowners of this beautiful rural site wanted an outdoor retreat where they could relax and unwind. Although there appeared to be plenty of room to sprawl, the location had some surprising limitations.
With a historic log cabin at its core, the home presented some unique challenges. The orientation of the home — and the need for a seamless transition to key indoor spaces — made finding a location for the main pool and patio difficult.
A timeless granite fieldstone wall was constructed alongside the driveway, hiding it from view and providing a natural backdrop for the pool. Using natural materials helped the remaining amenities fit seamlessly into the space.
The unique pool design has soothing water features and appears to be built into a "collapsed" fieldstone wall.
A natural stone patio and cedar deck provide a seamless transition from the house to the newly constructed pool area.
A sunken hot tub, gas fire table, and built-in metal kitchen make it easy to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
A subdued colour palette of classic plants transforms the surrounding gardens, enhancing the feeling of tranquillity.
