Typically, we like to wait a few years before we put a new project up on our website. It’s nice to allow the gardens time to fill in and gently spill over the edges. This large project north of the city occupied 2 years of our time. It has been suggested that in this case, instead of waiting, we share some of our file of build photos. It was a privilege to work on this site. We hope you enjoy the ‘in progress’ shots.
Overview Drone Shots
Drones allow for some pretty impressive overhead shots. They are great for conveying property context.
Framing this entranceway through the woodlot was pure pleasure. The stonework for these columns was an assortment of material regionally reclaimed. The base and caps were newly carved Indiana limestone. The entrance keypad was mounted on an old granite hitching post.
Front Entry and Parking
Adorning the main entrance to any home while simultaneously maintaining flow and functionality is always a challenge. A mix of oversized granite flagstone and brick pavers delineates vehicular and pedestrian zones. A large parking pad pullout sunken into garden with a low retaining wall allows convenient space for visitors. A highly detailed application, lush generous gardens and impressive corten steel planters make this entranceway a pleasure to experience.
Maintaining the stunning vistas to the south was priority one at this home. A large deck wraps two sides of the home linking the three access points on the same luxurious plane. A significant barbecue and pizza oven surround anchors the southwest corner. A broad, dramatic dry set patio of oversized granite flagstone provides a place to take in the southerly views. Sizeable raised stone planters address the very challenging elevation changes encountered at this part of the property.
Pool and Pavilion Area
The ‘showstopper’ feature at this home is definitely the pool and pavilion area. A rose arbor welcomes visitors to a sunken sitting area mix of brick and oversized granite flagstone. The sizeable timber frame pavilion allows for poolside shade as well as a luxurious area for gathering in front of an impressive Rumford fireplace. A large concrete retaining wall faced with stone and corten steel separates this area from a secondary parking pad above. Deep gardens and hedging surround the area, making it feel like a piece of paradise independent of its surroundings.
