It took over five years and many phases to transform this landscape into the lovely “Casa California” style it exhibits today. Great attention to detail in every corner creates an outdoor living space that enhances and perfectly complements the beauty of this Spanish mission-style home. One of the main features of this yard is the unique spa and attached lap pool. The yard couldn’t house a full-sized pool, so we designed a narrow one just large enough to achieve a good workout. The owner has a love for Spanish tile and worked with an interior decorator to find rare traditional tiles to adorn the pool, spa, fountains, steps, and flooring. The tiles bring an authenticity to the home that was lacking before the renovation. Another focal point is the loggia with attached pergola. It creates three unique outdoor “rooms” for dining, socializing, or quiet reflection. With a terra cotta tile roof and stucco exterior, it is a seamless extension of the house itself.
