This modern styled architectural home in the Upper Beach area had an existing illegal asphalt "parking lot" in front. It was also sloping towards the house creating flooding in the basement.
This design incorporated monolithic precast concrete blocks to build up the grade of most of the front yard creating a basement walkout area close to the house.
A steel mesh stair case navigates up to the second story front door and also a second steel staircase leads to the basement walkout entry.
Inlaid dark flagstones in the interlocking brick paving highlight the walkway.
Tall Beech tree planting on the left block an unsightly view of a rundown house next door.
Ornamental grasses and boxwood hedges emphasize the modern styling.
