The project is a stay-cationer’s dream getaway. The project includes a 65’ long pool with raised and recessed 14’ diving board, boulder outcroppings above and below the waterline, 15 person spa with stone water feature, and massive boulder waterfall. The pool and pool deck area were lowered 2’ below the existing grade creating informal seating with stone seat benches surrounding the pool, as well as eye catching interest through elevation. Design parameters also include a fire pit area, landscape, solar heating and a 2000 SQFT pool house with many indoor-outdoor features.
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.
