Renovation is an understatement in this mountain getaway redo. The existing pool was dramatically reshaped; spa and 80 ton natural stone waterfall added and stone coping and waterline tile complete a truly magnificent transformation. The pool and spa were surrounded with extensive landscape and hardscape including fire pit area with large boulder seat walls, outdoor living pavilion with cook center and bar as well as fifteen field excavated live oak and Manzanita trees. Stone and stucco walls with custom made wood gates and hardware surround this private resort like space.
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.
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.
