Lone Pine East

Nestled in a quaint grove of trees, this landscape project in Bloomfield Hills offers a private, secluded environment for relaxation and entertaining.

From the house, solid slabs of New York bluestone placed between a pair of limestone plinths showcasing planters of seasonal color welcome you to the pool terrace. The smooth surface of the pool and spa reflect the vibrant colors of the existing trees standing sentry around the space. At the far end of the patio, two additional zinc-washed planters and a row of single stem Amelanchier trees announce the transition from the patio to the expansive lawn and garden beyond.

Running parallel to the length of the pool, a pool house and pergola create a private elevated terrace offering ideal views to the garden and pool area below. In addition to the pool house and bar, an intimate conversation area underneath a wood-paneled vaulted ceiling is illuminated by the soft glow of lighting. The space is filled by the warmth of the double-sided fireplace. The dining area at the far end of the terrace allows captivating views of the entire garden.
