Designed for ultimate relaxation, this charming Southern backyard is the perfect place to enjoy the gorgeous vistas of Chickamauga Lake. The same stacked stone continues from the home to the poolscape, creating a cohesive space with an emphasis on nature. Natural elements are a priority in everything from the curated landscaping to the simple but stylish wood tables and woven chairs, and the tasseled umbrella offers a bohemian flair. An outdoor shower is tucked away in a nook featuring plenty of tropical greenery for a luxurious rinse. The elegant but understated pool layout offers optimal views of the lake whether you’re enjoying the spa that spills into the pool or relaxing on the sun shelf with soothing bubblers. The smooth and light travertine pool decking protects bare feet from the hot summer sun and ample seating provides plenty of opportunity for gathering together to appreciate the scenery.
