In true Californian style, Ben chose well-manicured lawns for the pool area to take full advantage of the northern sun. The King Cove Sun Lounges provide the ideal resting place for a poolside cocktail, as well as for quiet moments of rejuvenation in the low winter sun accompanied by a good novel.
Aesthetically, a succession of white limestone square steppers leads around the pool and spa, while a thin steel fence complements in its simplicity. Ben specified the fence close to the swimming pool’s coping to provide maximum space in the surrounding backyard.
To create a more spacious entrance into the backyard from the rear doors, the overall length of the pool was minimised on the eastern side, further enhancing a feeling of space and flow from the kitchen into the yard.
