With sweeping panoramas over the Strait of Juan de Fuca, this outdoor space exemplifies coastal elegance.
When Don and Bev Sault first found the site for their new home, they sat on top of the rock outcrop, gazing at the view and felt a sense of “spiritual bliss.”
The entire home — indoors and out — was designed by the homeowners, who also worked on the build with local craftsmen. “Don has the gifted ability to visualize what is not there and then to design something practical and make it happen,” Bev says. “He could see the home nestled between the large rock outcrop and a beautiful massive arbutus tree.”
A waterfall cascades down a large rock outcrop, wrapping around the koi pond and the infinity edge lap pool, which overlooks a rare arbutus forest across to the Olympic Mountains.
