Modern Playground

Healdsburg, CA

The new owners of this 70’s ranch home on three open acres desired a Healdsburg countryside destination for relaxation and entertainment. The home, awkwardly sited near the private road, lead to the installation of a mature Thuja hedge. This wall of green created the privacy required to locate the swimming pool close to the road and home in order to take advantage of the best views. Soil from the pool excavation was used to create a sculpted ‘mountain’ that provides sound protection from the neighbor’s while offering space for a stage used by the musician/DJ owners. The grounds were laid out in such a fashion that a party for 200+ can easily take place or a more tranquil weekend could be spent doing poolside yoga. Mount Saint Helena is nicely framed in the distance below the cascading spaces, leaving another 2 acres open for future development and informal use.
