Adjacent to the swimming pool area is the motor court entry, that’s clad with Hartstone steppers and lined with synthetic turf joints.
From this viewpoint, the rear side of the spa wall is visible. Fifteen custom stainless steel scuppers designed by Randy Angell Designs, pour out from above an acrylic covered window, and into a hidden gutter system in the rocky media below. The acrylic panel allows you to see through the opening, but also protects the fire from the windy courtyard breezeway.
On the other side of the wall, is a raised perimeter overflow spa, designed so that water flows up and over 3 sides of the spa. The automated, linear, gas-burning firepit has been built into the opening of the wall, while floating stepper pads stretch across the front of the spa, allowing easy walking access from one side to the other.
Behind the wetdeck, there’s a sunken fire pit and conversation area at water level, that’s surrounded by a shallow water fountain.
The perimeter overflow design allows the pool water to be at the same level as the sunken firepit, with it flowing right up to the edge before dropping down into the narrow seam and being captured by the hidden gutter system underneath.
