Ocean views offer so much to enjoy – endless blue water, salty breezes and stunning sunsets. We designed and created two outdoor living spaces designed to capture the beauty of the ocean for this Sunset Cliffs home as part of a whole-house renovation. We created a relaxing private courtyard outside the two-story family room by designing and building a stair tower with an adjacent great room; the design incorporates an existing 50-year-old pepper tree. Tall windows in the surrounding rooms and French doors leading out to the patio windows create seamless indoor/outdoor living. On the second level, we added an ocean-view deck perfect for outdoor dining and entertaining. Clean, light tile work and French doors enhance the coastal ambiance.
