Nestled in the hills and community of Keilor East is this contemporary, new backyard. A lush, inviting family retreat that packs a lot of wow factor into a small area.
Designed to make clever use of the limited courtyard space, the feature of the garden is undoubtedly the swimming pool. Fringed with greenery, elemental textures of granite pavers and porcelain tiles in soft greys, are the perfect aesthetic against the reflective water. At the north end of the pool, a luxurious sun lounge sits on white pavers, positioned to allow ground cover to flourish. The selection of timbers and stone mirror the natural tones of the landscape. Texture driven plantings of soft green and grey foliage provide a calming backdrop for mauve flower spires and gossamer grasses, that catch the morning and afternoon sunlight.
The modern swimming pool is accompanied by a stunning new landscape. A formed concrete outdoor kitchen, equipped with built-in granite sink and stainless steel cooktop takes the backyard BBQ to a new level. The existing deck is revived and contemporary furnishings added, enhancing the tones and character of the surroundings.
The finishing touch is a fire pit with sculptural corner bench seating, which extends the entertaining zone and oozes with warmth throughout the seasons. An ideal spot for an intimate Winter wine, or a place to sit and relax on a nature bursting Spring evening.
This backyard is the perfect setting for memorable get-togethers with family and friends, or a much coveted summer pool party.
