See what can be done outside at any home to help bring you back out into Nature - this combined effort between exterior designer Nick Williams and the entire homeowners’ family make this home a perfect example of California Outdoor Living. It features a beautiful solid covered family room, supported by lodge-style wood pillars, a natural stone fireplace with a large flat panel TV mounted above the mantle, and it’s very own hillside boulder waterfall.
Comfortable outdoor furniture makes it a perfect place to relax and watch a ball game with a cool drink in summer, or a steeping hot chocolate in winter. What’s more, there is a full outdoor kitchen and cooking area directly adjacent to the room, so you can also keep an eye on the barbecue without missing the best play of the game! Complete with a rich colored “hand chiseled” granite countertop, sink, under-the-counter refrigerator, and plenty of storage, the kitchen has everything for entertaining that one would need to be the perfect backyard chef.
Stepping stones lead you away from the kitchen and living area and beckon you to explore. Wander along the hillside pathways and up stone stairs lit by elegant and functional outdoor lighting designed by Nick Williams, including his unique “Candle Lights.” Small vignettes of plants, shrubs, flowers and clusters of boulders and stones create a wonderful natural landscape. Waterfalls spill down the hillside between large “faux boulders”, that look so real you could not tell the difference from Mother Nature!
