City PenthouseContemporary Pool, Sydney
Spanning three levels this city penthouse was in need of a makeover. The client wanted a low maintenance garden to enjoy personally whilst also creating expansive entertaining spaces. Set against a dramatic backdrop of stunning views of the harbour and city skyline, the garden is enchanting with ponds; walkways and an entire entertaining level, complete with hot tub.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Social spas. If you’re mostly after a social spa, you have the option of either portable or concrete. It’s more about where you position the spa and what you put around it that will create a social catalyst. Placing a spa close to the main entertaining areas and giving the space inside the pool fence other features — such as built-in bench seats, fire pits and ice buckets — will give the spa a multifunctional appeal. Again, the portable, raised spa has some benefits, as the people in the spa are on similar eye level as those outside the spa. And some of the portable options have built-in TVs and sound systems.
Take a dip. It's probably too cold to hop in the pool, but it may have warmed up enough that you can now endure a swimsuited dash outside into a hot tub. Now that there's light the sky, you won't stub your toe on a blind run out there. And oh, yeah, you might be greeted with a fantastic view.Browse more outdoor design ideas
