Mountain Lodge

Situated on a 100 acre site, this landscape for a private residence draws it's inspiration from the classic mountain lodges of the northeast. Rich sweeping drifts of native perennials, grasses and shrubs create a relaxed, elegant composition that ground the home and define a variety of spaces for family gathering, entertaining and quiet reflection. Large caliper trees were planted to compliment the surrounding mature trees, providing a sense of permanence and timelessness. An existing pond was augmented and expanded for swimming with a 'diving rock' hand selected and perched at one end. The south-facing terrace is defined by large slabs of stone and a grand outdoor fireplace that gives way to views of the neighboring ski trails.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Donald Pell - Gardens added this to Creating a There, There in the Garden
Whether it’s a large pond or a small architectural feature, water is always alluring. The earliest Islamic gardens and the 16th-century gardens of Italy were often built around water. Designer Julie Messervy has some interesting ideas about how expanses of water recall us back to being in the womb. I’m not really sure what that means, but I always really love time spent by the water.
