The client desired a design that incorporated a 50’ swim lane, natural waterfall, infinity edge and natural materials. The pool was raised 18” above grade to address privacy, negative-edge viewpoint and available informal seating. The raised pool beam also provided privacy for the client while sun bathing and optimized the view point of the infinity edge overflow. We used natural quartz stone on the decking, beam fascia, waterline and coping.
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.
