Blueprint for Improvement:  Poolside paradise in Carmel



This 2001 home is in Carmel’s Buckhorn Estates neighborhood.  The homeowners wanted to transform the backyard into a resort-style retreat, complete with a new pool, outdoor kitchen, dining and seating area.


  • The backyard was a blank canvas. A  master plan was created to incorporate all of the features the homeowners were looking for to ensure all components of the plan worked together.
  • The outdoor kitchen is trimmed in stacked stone and features everything from a beverage refrigerator to bar seating for guests.  The fireplace features built-in storage for firewood.
  • A generously sized patio offers room for seating and dining and features built-in lighting at the steps to the pool.
