La Gracia Residence
When first arriving at this Country villa, it was hard to tell where the front door was. Our firm re-designed and re-graded the front entry drive, so that one could see where to go. Then we created a pedestrian portico, designed in the old rancho style, to capture the visitor’s attention and invite them in. Layers of trees and shrubs ring the front yard, and frame the portico. Once inside the gate, viewers are treated to a flowering walkway, and landscape, a long fountain, built into the slope, and serene water plants. The front door immediately follows.
The rear yard was enhanced to take advantage of the existing views. The pool and spa were remodeled, with a more classic appearance.
