The Descent

at UPPER SADDLE RIVER

If you own a property that has a massive hill, and you aren’t sure what to do inorder to create a living space that feels seamless transition and allows you to enjoy your whole property, look no further than Visionscape Design! That’s what the owners of this Upper Saddle River property did and we think they made the right decision!

The first portion of this property design element is a 1700 SF Marmiro Stone – Deep Blue patio that is spacious enough to allow for entertaining while also being cognizant of the hill’s drop off location. This patio features a huge outdoor kitchen and bar area which doubles as a prep area for those big family feasts and is capped off by a tv wall, perfect for functional privacy. This patio is wrapped with a gorgeous head of boxwoods to ensure no one is going for a tumble without the need for a fence blocking your view to the yard below!

 

Leading to the lower level of the property, you can see the use of Monolithic Bluestone steps and landings accompanied by natural boulder wall tiers and natural plantings which help lead to the destination spot of the property.

The pool is a 16’ x 32’ vinyl liner pool with stadium steps and a 10’ x 10’ sundeck bump out perfect for lounging and cooling off on a hot summer day. The 585 SF pool patio consists of  that same Marmiro Stone – Deep Blue patio which gives the property a cohesive feel even though it seems to be so far apart, it feels like you are in the same place all at once. As well as two turf areas, one longer section excellent for lounging by the pool and catching some summer sun and a smaller section that is home to a spacious daybed, the preferred spot for naps after a long day of swimming! This day bed section is flanked by an ample amount of white hydrangeas that fill the area with life and the subtle pop of color with elegance to the hardscapes and while also giving privacy to the area.
