Verandah AdditionThe homeowner asked Michael Lyons to re-imagine the outdoor living area of their property for large-scale entertaining of family, friends and business associates. A new 4-car detached garage connects to the main house with a drive-through arbor crowned with a 20′ diameter steel dome with hand-painted tile and glass mosaics. An antique French chandelier hangs inside the dome providing an attractive entrance to the guest parking. A new infinity edge pool was designed and built between the main house and the guest house. Two large arbors were added to flank the pool, providing a sitting area and dining area. The dining area features a freestanding ledge-stone fireplace with a cascading fountain on the back. An outdoor kitchen, spa and fire pit complete the terrace. An existing pond with waterfall was enlarged and lined with stone edging. A second pond with fountain was added below. Architect Michael Lyons designed a connecting stone wall and walkway with arbor between the two ponds leading to a terrace with a fire pit for an additional outdoor entertaining and seating area.
