House #2 on the Private Garden Tour
The second house we visited on the garden tour was a huge home that we learned had been completely remodeled after it was purchased by the present owners in 2013. The vision was to create a "warm and inviting environment with a soft, French feel". The front drive is new and creates an arrival court with a French limestone fountain in the center.
In the back was a beautiful and very large pool. There was also a tennis court and a wide expanse of desert to edge of the property.
I loved this little seating area with the candelabra hanging from the tree above. Wouldn't that be a great place to share a bottle of wine and great conversation?
There was an extensive garden of roses all around the back patio featuring the pretty iceberg roses. They added dots of delicate white blooms in every direction.
On the way back out the driveway, I spotted this pot overflowing with beautiful plants. They were mostly white and green but I love those little tiny splashes of red in there too.
