Design Challenge

The client was looking to create a private area that included a swimming pool, as well as having plenty of usable outdoor living space to entertain guests. However, this downtown Saratoga home had a high degree of difficulty due to the fact the working area was very small on this property.

Design Solution

For entertainment, we added a pool along the back portion of the property and squared it up with a fire pit and sitting wall. To increase the entertainment space, we then created a large patio which was outfitted with an outdoor kitchen. For the client’s privacy needs, along the back side of the property we added a privacy fence and planted evergreens to to reproduce nature into the space. Along the front side of the space, we added a natural stone fence with an integrated black iron fence, creating a grand entrance to the entertainment space while still fulfilling the client’s request for privacy.
