Almaden Valley #3

This classic Italianate styled garden steps down a steep slope in Almaden Valley, San Jose, CA. On the upper terrace, we designed a stone privacy wall, outdoor fireplace, heater and BBQ station all flanked by rustic, over-grouted stone columns supporting a heavy-timbered shade structure. The observation deck just off the terrace and above the pool offers a terrific view of the valley and the hills. Descending the stairs leads to the sun-drenched pool and travertine terrace. The client, originally from Bulgaria, loves the old world ambience.
