Residential Landscape Design

Back Bay Estate

Refined Southern Elegance

The home looks as if it has been on the site for several decades.

Located along the Back Bay, and hidden amongst large Live Oak trees, this estate boasts spectacular views from the moment one drives through the main gate. A long meandering driveway through the old oak trees reveals a beautiful home designed by architect George Denmark.

Native plants are sprinkled throughout the site creating splashes of color across the landscape. A large paver parking court welcomes visitors to this secluded, elegant home on the water.

Comfortable Beauty

Bluestone pavers, brick walkways, and native grasses blend the home into the natural surroundings.

The back terrace of the residence is perhaps the highlight of the property. With a pool, a large bluestone paver pool deck, and fire pit, all looking out over the bay in dramatic fashion, it is difficult not to love this area. A combination of seat walls and planters define the edge of the large deck area without obstructing the pristine view. Steps lead down to a walkway that guide you to the owner’s boat dock.

Wetland grasses along the edge of the lawn help tie the property back into the natural bayou landscape. Looking back from the dock up to the home, it becomes apparent how grand and majestic this place is and how well all of the details of the architecture and the landscape have come together.
