Manicured and elegant, yet simple and spacious – this property is equally suited to formal gatherings and family fun. Structure is a key feature of the landscape: square-trimmed privet hedging around the border offers privacy, while lattice fencing defines a private garden at the side of the home. The patio was completely rebuilt and enlarged to create ample space for family dining, gracious entertaining or even a fast-paced game of Ping-Pong. Unique features include a wood-burning fireplace and gas-fired lanterns that appear to float in the surrounding hedge. A stone path connects the patio to the custom-designed pool, where an extra ten feet of length allows for an integrated spa with sacrificing pool space. A harmonious blend of plants and materials, including bluestone, boxwood, hydrangea and English ivy, give the finishing touch to this sophisticated, but still comfortable, property.
