It's always gratifying when a client calls us back to say, "We love what you did so much, we want more!" And this project especially will hold a treasured place. We love the way this one turned out. The rustic natural stone fits so perfectly with the style of the house, and the lakefront view is spectacular. Ten Mile is always one of our favorite places to work. The views of Watts Bar lake, the mild breeze, and the serene setting always make for amazing outdoor spaces. With this particular lot, we were dealing with a reasonably steep slope, so we got to get creative. The original plan was a natural stone walkway down to a beautiful rustic firepit area. But once it was complete, these clients realized they wanted to expand the scope. We added a beautiful free form in-ground hot tub with all the bells and whistles with custom seamless-edge natural stone pool decking around it for a modern rustic flare. However, because we were dealing with such a slope, we had to (got to?) continue the boulder retention walls to create a solid, level space for the area. Merging the two key areas are natural stone staircases and walkways that tie it all together.
This project features two natural stone patios, a custom fire pit, boulder and natural stone retaining walls, and a luxury in-ground spa with an onyx finish.
