featured property Wellesley Backyard Retreat

An active Wellesley family of four sought to reimagine their backyard to provide engaging activity spaces with an inviting rustic feel. A pool, outdoor kitchen, fireplace, and an expanded patio space offers ample opportunity to maximize their time in their new outdoor living area.

about this property

Wellesley, Massachusetts |  The raised pool and spa transformed a forgotten corner from unused to a property focal point. Mature trees and large, irregular bluestone coping lend a feeling of a woodland swimming hole. The expanded patio, also of bluestone, appointed with a built-in grill and fieldstone fireplace, its margins sumptuously planted, serve to create a haven for outdoor entertaining.

The central lawn is the organizational heart, granting a seamless transition between the contiguous recreation and activity areas. A delight underfoot, this rich lawn is as much a destination as it is a passage. This design integrates existing and new materials to offer continuity. Generous plantings complete the sense of privacy, enclosure, and warmth.
