A family retreat to celebrate holidays and provide a destination for those living near and far. The owners wanted a landscape that would refloct the warmth of the home, with an emphasis on their contemporary style and inflhence. The original birch grove is a focal point for the front entry and parking court. A bridge separates the front door from the parking court and a 30’ living wall is an inviting display as you enter the home. The ocean views and sunset are enjoyed from the raised stone terrace and pool. Plantings on the terrace, such as roses, Pennisetum grasses, and Russian sage create a garden within the wire railings and provide a sense of privacy yet are low growing in order to preserve an open view corridor to the ocean.
