A Jewel of a Setting for a Splendid House: Estate Garden


You can start off at what they call the “auto court,” a good expanse major to the front door of this elegant estate house — multi-colored manufactured cobble and concrete — but that’s only the beginning of this lavish California landscape, garden, and entertaining location brought to life by Kikuchi and Kankel Style Group. Move by means of the white gate (and stately white fencing) and you’ll have a visual feast: manicured lawn, carefully sculpted beds, terraced plantings, and even humble potted plants up the methods. In the crisp light of fall, a red maple holds pride of place, although other mature trees drop dappled shade over the walkway top out from the deck toward the “play locations.”


And these are worth the trip: at the finish of a lighted walk — or, down the methods from one particular wing of the mansion — you’ll see a deep blue pool and spa edged in white and natural stone on one particular side is a spacious pool property with plenty of changing area, while to its left is a stone mini-patio for leisurely sitting. Facing the pool property is a slatted white pergola with arbors and potted plants that thrive in the sunlight. About 1 curve of the walk is a white gazebo, a shady spot to pause and reflect — just methods away from a complete-size tennis court helpful for a excellent workout. Walkways connect one outdoor “room” to yet another for effortless entertaining in this space large enough for a crowd. Fine specifics of organic stone, elegant shaped shrubbery, and well-trimmed lawns are a fitting setting for this “jewel” of a property — and stunning in their personal correct.
