With a Napa Valley view too good to pass up, and easy access to Yountville and St Helena, the owners snapped up this Mediterranean style estate, and invited us to help them bring a contemporary flair to the outdoor living areas while they remodeled the interiors. The existing pool was removed and replaced with a larger pool with deep end, Baja shelf, spa, automatic cover, and infinity edge maximizing the view. At the deep end of the pool sits a cocoon-like daybed on limestone pavers flanked by Lomandra grasses. At the shallow end, a sunken ‘living room’ with custom daybeds faces out toward the view.
At the edge of the Douglas Fir forest beyond, a custom steel fire pit creates an evening destination, literally made for sunset viewing, and reflecting on the closing day.
