You name it, this project has it! Specialized engineering was needed to build this spectacular 45' infinity edge design, which offers the owners unobstructed sweeping views of the Mt. Diablo foothills from inside and out of the pool.
A total of 27 piers were dug 30' deep into the hillside to support the weight of this structure, which is surrounded by custom sandblasted precast coping. The salt water pool features a stone and glass plaster finish honed smooth for the ultimate in durabilty, comfort, and luxury. The advanced hoseless in-floor cleaning system with pop-up nozzles automatically and silently direct debris to cleanout drains located in the floor. The cleaning system, along with two automatic pool covers and color-changing LED lighting are controlled via smartphone app.
Next to the built-in spa sits an inset dry seating area, featuring a stainless steel gas fire table, where friends can watch the sunset over the mountains while keeping warm by the fire.
The client envisioned a design that captured Early California with elements reminiscent of the gold mining era. The finished project includes: a “cowboy cabin” style pavilion with distressed beams and stone counters, a tube slide with dilapidated mine shaft entry into the pool, a mine shaft outdoor shower built into the backside of the water features, and underwater boulder formations. Multiple water features including a gold panning creek and treasures, such as arrow heads and gold coins and nuggets, affixed and hidden throughout the pool, complete the ultra rustic feel.
The project design features include a 65’ x 38’ main pool which spills over an infinity edge feature into a secondary wading pool. A large boulder water feature with multiple stream beds leading into the pool. Other features include 50 specimen live oak trees and a zero edge feature on the wading pool.
