The stream that bisects this family's front yard is as elegant and peaceful as any stream found naturally occurring. Designed to mimic a stream that might be found in the mountains around the home, small stones line the riverbed, while large stones are placed around the river to give it boundaries, but also to make it look more natural.
The roundabout in the front yard is an elegant touch to the entry of this home. Reminiscent of old-world elegance, this feature gives the homeowners a place to sit and entertain, but it also serves as a crossroads for guests, guiding them to other parts of the garden.
The owners of this elegant home wanted friends and family to have a true mountain experience as guests enter the house. They loved the idea of a stream that bisected the entire yard and unified the space. The couple wanted their home to have plenty of character, while still blending effortlessly into the peaceful mountains around them.
