Wisteria Lane

Pool Construction Project

The home owners were looking for a backyard that was both functional and an aesthetic match for this gorgeous home nestled in the hills of the Bay Area. The pool construction project included an additional dwelling unit (ADU) which was to provide a beautiful, peaceful space for visiting grandparents and guests. The ADU was placed at the far end of the pool, facing the infinity edge–a unique placement that created a water feature for the small patio in front of the ADU cottage.

The infinity edge is broken up by a small granite bar which can be enjoyed from the patio or inside the pool with a swim-up side bar. Stainless steel anchors in the wall of the pool hold up submerged bar stools.

Both sides of the pool are home to huge trellises holding up lush rows of wisteria flowers, which inspired us to nickname the project “Wisteria Lane.” The hardscape surrounding the pool is composed entirely of walnut travertine.

Other features of the backyard include a metal fire pit, custom-made wooden benches positioned beneath the row of trees to the side of the yard and a play area for the kids (complete with a trampoline).

The opposite end of the pool (from the infinity edge) includes a sunken spa with walls capped in walnut travertine to create the illusion of stone floating on the water. The gentle sound of flowing water from the water feature wall beautifully finishes off the serene landscape of this private oasis.

The pool is equipped with an in-floor cleaning system and a hydraulic lid on the pool autocover by Aquamatic. Approved pool covers are one of the seven (of which any two are required) safety features mandated for pools in California.

The lid is camouflaged with matching walnut travertine. Once the autocover is rolled out, the hydraulic lid closes, creating a smooth, seamless pool deck once more.

This pool construction project was designed by a third party (pool construction is one of our services). We gave it the same attention to detail and craftsmanship as we would any of our own designs.

We work with homeowners all the way through final inspection, including the vital safety features mandated by law, without which your pool will not pass.
