The Desert Meets the English Country
This stunning desert mountain retreat was inspired by the English Countryside. It was designed to transport you to another time and place, by seamlessly blending old-world architectural details with modern amenities that elevate every day living. Every material was thoughtfully chosen for its naturally porous properties, that age and take on character over time, telling the unique story of the home. A mix of reclaimed limestone, stucco and cedar siding are not only visually striking when paired together, but embrace the elements of both the desert and the English countryside. The wood shingled roof with the gabled fronted dormers add an heir of tradition, while the black steel paned windows and doors provide a timelessly modern touch. A charming addition to the front exterior is a reclaimed limestone fountain that greets you upon arrival. Further enhancing the surroundings are silvery-green-leaved olive trees that are a European favorite, along with traditional oak trees providing privacy and lush greenery.
Nestled just off of the kitchen is an outdoor dining space featuring the Harper Dining Table and the Valerie Outdoor Dining Chairs. This space is perfect for dining al fresco on cool days and warm evenings, creating a true European garden-like dining experience.
The Backyard Living Space
The backyard living space is where the desert meets a garden-esque oasis, featuring beautiful English country inspired architecture, five separate seating areas, including two fireplaces, a fire pit, and a luxurious pool. The imported and reclaimed limestone fountains bordered by a wide crushed granite path, creates beautiful focal statements that invoke the old-world sophistication and timeless tradition of European gardens. Newly planted oak and olive trees, along with lavender and feathered grasses, show restraint while enhancing the desert landscape, and invoking a tranquil environment that feels timeless, yet modern.
Further enhancing the backyard living spaces are the furniture selections. A combination of dining and lounging areas create several spaces to relax, unwind, and entertain guests. Wicker style chairs and ottomans, paired with natural wood tables and benches, create stunning and versatile selections designed to withstand the elements and add a touch of style and functionality. We absolutely love the Elise Outdoor Rocking Chair due to its sleek, modern design and natural comfort. Other stunning furnishings are the Monica Woven Chair paired with the Eden Outdoor Coffee Table. These were the perfect selections for this oversized fireplace, creating an intimate and charming outdoor experience.
