San Souci translates from the French as “Carefree”. In keeping with this ethos, the agenda was to transform a terraced garden at this Tower’s Estate home, into a convenient, comfortable sanctuary for the older couple who are the new owners. The existing garden was well established, and bounded by a 12’-0” high retaining wall that created a somewhat level area. The arrangement also featured stone steps down to the lower area of the site, which was left primarily as a natural landscape. The scope of the project included creating an outdoor oasis with pool, spa, patio and gardens, and also turning a ground floor study into a new Master Suite.
