This large acreage property situated on the outskirts of Palmwoods required extensive
landscaping including 20m lap pool, kitchen and firepit area.

Pool – The pool consisted of a 20m heated Lap pool with an offset play area. At the Kitchen
pavilion end of the pool there is a swim up bar with custom fabricated stainless steel bar stools.
Glass mosaic waterline tiles were installed with fully tiled stepping stones leading to the sunken
lounge area. Full mineral sanitizing system with 7 x multi color lights.
The spa is also fully tiled with glass mosaics, includes 8 x spa jets and 1 x LED light. The beauty
of the spa is that it can be controlled with a home automation system so you can heat your spa
on your way home from work.
THe large Pavilion room (12m x 7.5m) laid with a silver Travertine tile, houses a sunken lounge
area with a custom concrete swim up bar. There is also an outdoor kitchen crafted in the same
concrete design as the pool bar, pizza oven and enough space for an outdoor dining table.

Timber floating steps lead you down to the Firepit area consisting of a concrete curved seating
area with a backrest 45 degree angle cut into the slope. The entire structure was clad in stone,
including a centre firepit plinth with corten firebowl insert. Wooden slats were installed as a seat
wrapping around the wall. The base was laid with travertine tiles to match outdoor dining and
living areas. Entry to the firepit entertaining area is via Large Bluestone stepper path planted out
with tropical planting.
