Preston Waterscapes-25 years of Quality in the Making

 

We put the "Art" in Artificial Rockwork


Condon Residence
Somis, California

Remodeling the pool area of this Mediterranean-style ranch home, located at the top of a ridge with a 360-degree view, was an excellent opportunity for Preston Waterscapes to showcase our vast array of artistic talents.
Starting with an outdated pool that was too small, the owners had a vision of a more functional, natural setting with a raised spa and plenty of decking to provide useable areas for personal use and entertaining.
Half the pool was demolished to make way for expansion and the addition of a shallow Baja-style beach landing with fountain jets, and a large, 12-person spa.
This custom spa has a deep, standing well with a multitude of soothing jets and a custom, poured-in-place, rock textured coping and a series of artificial rock on the pool/spa transition. Water cascades from hidden crevasses, crashing into both the pool and spa along cracks and ledges.
Using a cast-on, hand troweled application and rock texturing, the 5,500 sq. ft. deck and patio area are a random stone pattern that has been meticulously stained.
Custom, iridescent blue-green tile and a light blue mini-pebble plaster contrast gracefully with the otherwise rock-themed setting.
Employing our time-tested, self-developed printing techniques, and the addition of fossils, shells and even sand dollars found on-site during excavation, Preston Waterscapes has lent a special touch to a very special project.
