Phoenix Rising

Rising out of the ashes from the firestorm of 2007, this residence was among the first to be rebuilt from the devastation. The rebuilt pool, adjoining patios and walkways, and outdoor gathering areas were re-designed to blend seamlessly with the new architecture. Materials and details from the new custom home were brought outdoors with wall and gate details, paving patterns and materials, and the new outdoor kitchen area. Look on this site in 2011 for new photos of this Rancho Bernardo hilltop home in full bloom with matured, casually formal, drought-resistant landscape with various species of flax, daylilies, fragrant sages, and striking burgundy Kangaroo Paws. A lush, airy, colorful showpiece.
