The rear yard of this small, Ridgewood home was designed to meet the client’s requirements: reclaim a severely sloping portion of rear yard to create space for a freeform pool with retractable safety cover and include a full-service outdoor kitchen with privacy and ample seating for a large group or a simple family meal.
In order to accomplish this, the rear yard was excavated to form two distinct levels, an upper level for an outdoor kitchen with a patio dining area, and a lower level for a patio, swimming pool, spa and water feature.
The completed project created a backyard retreat that not only met the client’s expectations in a relatively small space, but greatly increased the value of the property. The look is both elegant and simple, giving a sense of comfort and intimacy.
