Ocean view with nautical details


This entry garden overlooking the Monterey Bay creates a whimsical space for entertaining and a fun-filled play scape for children. Replacing an old deck and a large, non-functioning pond, the new turf area, flagstone patio and walkway provide a safe and inviting approach to the beach cottage. The seat wall patio and natural fire pit are oriented to focus guests on the panoramic views of Manresa Beach. The new ship’s deck and captain’s wheel wrap around the ocean side of the house create a unique play area for guests of all ages. An outdoor shower is conveniently hidden along a walkway coming up from the beach. The stone and colored concrete were selected to compliment the stone of the house.
