A private retreat from the outside world on the stunning Mornington Peninsula.
Located in Blairgowrie, a seaside village on the Mornington Peninsula, this contemporary coastal rectangular pool and square-shaped spa on a corner block have completely transformed the backyard.
The homeowners envisaged a space for entertaining and relaxing, and Aquarius Pools, which built the 8m-long pool and spa, has more than delivered, with alfresco dining adjacent to the pool on the deck and outdoor kitchen.
“The beautiful blue hues of this pool and spa are inviting, and stunning slate paving results in a gorgeous water feature from the house, deck and adjacent firepit,” says Chris Jackson, managing director of Aquarius Pools. “The pool, spa and garden have completely transformed the space.”
“The intention was to create a contemplative private garden around the new contemporary pool,” says landscape designer Fiona Brockhoff, of Fiona Brockhoff Design. “This area required screening from the adjacent street traffic but also enough space to enjoy the pool surrounds. We used plants that are low maintenance and well suited to the existing site conditions. Most are indigenous to the Mornington Peninsula. The emphasis is on plant form and foliage colour. The result is a private green retreat from the outside world.”
