A HILLTOP OASIS IN SARATOGA

When we were called in to work on this project, it was in shambles. The original design/build company had fled the scene, and it was up to us to bring it all together. As you can see, we were able to turn the project around, and the clients now enjoy a beautiful hilltop retreat, complete with swimming pool, outdoor bar, spa, split-level fireplaces, an ornamental fountain, and a dining tent. The colorful outdoor furniture reflects the fun-loving nature of this couple, who not only collect art, but are actively involved in the music world as well (he plays classical guitar and she studies Flamenco dancing). They were kind enough to invite us to one of their parties, and at night the space truly is a wonderland.
