Detached Cottage, Pool, and Landscaping


We love to do big backyards, large landscaping projects, and to build cottages.  In this case, we created a tropical paradise in Cambrian Park with a new fully self contained Tuscan influenced cottage in the back of of a 16,000 sq. ft. lot.  The mature queen palms, towering birds of paradise, star jasmine, and bougainvillea of various colors makes you feel like you are walking through a garden in Maui.  The new pebble sheen lined pool with an integrated flagstone pool deck completed the scene for this tropical oasis rivaling a top resort (exactly what the owners wanted).

The design of the detached 800 sq. ft. cottage is the best we've seen yet with a full kitchen, separate bedroom with a walk-in closet, a laundry room, a small dining area, and a full bathroom with a soaking tub.  Yet, with all these amenities the soaring ceilings and use of space felt like a much bigger area.  The private entrance and private rear patio made a perfect getaway for family members and long term guests.
