Fine Homes


This authentically-designed two-story Victorian is nestled in a neighborhood of stately homes with each generating its own unique personality. Our client called upon us to create a spectacular backyard worthy of this dramatic home.

The existing back porch was tripled in size to function as an indoor/outdoor space with special attention given to the integration of the same details a Victorian deserves. A raised colonnade was built to welcome family and friends to the pool house and summer kitchen.

An Old-Chicago Brick terrace and deck frame the oversized pool while your eye is drawn to the centerpiece of the backyard: A free-standing masonry outdoor fireplace with 15’ chimney.
