This 40 year old residence is beautifully sited: massive Cottonwoods to the rear, a small creek to the side and stunning, mountain views to the West, across acres of open space.The landscape renovation plan capitalized on the vista by creating a raised, flagstone terrace near the home’s entrance where this family can lounge, visit and dine. A multitiered water feature cools the west facing area, and a stepped walkway eases the grade change between the driveway, terrace and new front door and landing. Careful attention to nightlighting features the rhythm of the trees along the property edge as well as the rain chain, steps, fountain and terrace perimeter.
