Serene Evening Retreat

A rustic stone pathway climbs the side of the landscaped hill, lit by beautiful assorted low voltage lighting from the Nick Williams Lighting Collection, as it leads you on to an amazing vista at this serene garden property. Here sun-dappled clouds and amber sky reflect beautifully from the glistening glassy waters of an infinity-edged pool. The shadows of nearby trees fall gracefully over the still waters, and you can lounge in the nearby cushioned patio furniture taking in the quiet gloaming of the evening sky before the hardy, warming fire that glimmers near an adjacent stone wall.

These open fires join with elegant lanterns to cast their warm light on the flagstones by the pool, which leads you to an outdoor gazebo with a Spanish tiled roof sheltering the adjacent spa. Elsewhere a tall stone pillar becomes a fountain, the wet stones gleaming in the evening light as water falls toward a bed of tall green reeds.

This home had an existing pool that Nick Williams redesigned with a remodeled infinity edge. Graceful fronds and colorful plants screen adjacent views of the infinity pool where some wonderful faux boulders, fire pits, a pond and an adjacent patio have been added. From within the pool itself, your eye extends out to the distant hillside, and the beautiful cloud sewn sky at dusk is mirrored again in the water.

Serene Evening Retreat

Nick increased the size of the backyard by creating a courtyard and a patio space up at the top of the hill with a winding broken concrete walkway that goes to the top. The low voltage lights, that have been designed by Nick Williams, allow for garden enjoyment well past sundown. This garden is a sedate and tranquil refuge from the hectic world of Southern California, a hillside retreat where the serenity and calm tranquility of water creates an ambience that calms the soul.
