Wrought iron railings, ledgestone accents, and cedar roofing are natural pairings with this home's elegant off-white walls. Completing the pool's intricate symmetry, a raised seating area in limestone provides a comfy place to catch the afternoon sun or simply view the garden beyond.
The word is Classic Elegance (okay it's two words) for this back view. Double-height columns frame a gracious entry and covered seating area. Focal point is the circular water feature surrounded by cool, smooth marble and accented with potted shrubbery and bronze sculptures. A historic breath of the tropics amid modern city living.
Contemporary and boasting extravagant use of glass, this home has a carefully balanced angularity. Stone pillars appear suspended on either side of an upper balcony with frameless glass railing – two sentinels wearing gaily-colorful floral "caps." At the right, a lattice provides not just privacy for the hot tub but a perfect environment for the climbing roses already preparing to share their scented glory later in the season. A white pergola with matched pair of hanging baskets provides a pleasing counterpoint to the simple, clean lines of the house itself.
