A Touch of Italy
Contemporary amenities meet Old World Charm in this gorgeously crafted hardscape. The homeowner wanted his home to have an Old World look and started with stone walls around the home. Some of the stone that you see in these photos is 600 years old – from Italy. The lighting choices really help to accent the stone work around this hardscape which includes flagstone walkways which lead to an inviting infinity edge pool. The pool here is designed with a walk-in reef.
This beautiful pool features a walk-in reef with contemporary loungers, a jacuzzi with a waterfall that flows into the lower pool. The pool deck for this job s made from flagstone. One of the special features of this project is a large, beautiful, half-circle stone bench lined with pillows for entertaining. In the middle of that entertainment area sits an artificial log gas fire pit. The hardscape includes an outdoor fireplace and kitchen, made from flagstone with chandelier lighting. The kitchen and dining area sit underneath a pergola. A retaining wall was built surrounding steps which lead you to and from the pergola.
