A private resort: outdoor design


A touch of class in your own backyard

The stunning rectangular-shaped swimming pool complements this gracious Federation Queen Anne residence perfectly. The sparkling water contrasts beautifully with the surrounding white sandstone paving and blends well with the colours of the gardens and lawns.

The brief from the client was to design, incorporate and integrate all the garden and lawn areas with a large swimming pool, a tennis court, a pool cabana, courtyards, alfresco eating areas, front entry pathways and driveway in a style that suits the lavish home.

The formality and simple geometric shape of the pool, together with the north-south tennis court and the layout of the lawn and plants, ensure the overall project is in keeping with the existing stately home.

The owners utilise the property for entertaining both friends and business associates. The meticulously built pool cabana is fitted with bespoke joinery and a palatial interior; it flows to the fabulous alfresco covered poolside entertaining spaces, in-ground pool and surrounding lawns and gardens.

The poolside garden includes a range of formal hedges and trees, creating a sense of class and sophistication to this formal Sydney North Shore property.

The final result is a stunningly beautiful integrated garden complex. The visual simplicity of this design and subtle use of quality materials unify the project and set the components well into the surrounding landscaped gardens to create a spectacular private resort.
