X WALLACE NEFF

Wallace Neff designed homes that wonderfully embraced indoor/outdoor relationships, whether humble or grand. This garden, surrounding a villa set atop a prominent knoll, typifies the grandest of his designs. Masterfully sited, the estate affords 360 degree views. The current owners embarked upon a major update of the home replete with restoration of the original structure and a desire to utilize the steep slope below the back of the house. Planted terraces now make the most of the lot, with a sparkling tiled pool at the lowest level. A formal motor court with a central fountain and inter-planted pavers replaced the original asphalt drive. The result is an elegant and functional landscape that draws the family and visitors through a series of garden rooms.
