Chino Hills Wooded Retreat

A 70's styled home with a view out to Mt. Baldy and existing mature pine trees set the tone for this landscape design: a woodsy feel with a modern twist. A newly remodeled kitchen off the covered patio create an indoor-outdoor feel and place to sit in front of a fireplace in the rain. Rich woodwork and stone add warmth to the modern poured-in-place patios, walls, and hearth. The double-sided fireplace gives visitors plenty of room to enjoy the peaceful site. Concrete pads with gravel joints allow for water infiltration throughout the site. A barbecue counter with seating bar is located just off the kitchen, and a water feature is visible from inside the kitchen.
