A Private Woodside Retreat

By working closely with the homeowners, Marquis Latimer + Halback, Inc. created a private retreat in a pine flatwood located in a master planned community in northeast Florida. An outdoor kitchen, flagstone dining patio, and brick fireplace are surrounded with native grasses, shrubs and trees. A pondless creek runs along the flagstone patio, providing a calming sight and sound to the homeowners and guests.The integration of the landscape into the adjacent preserve was important to homeowners, and the resulting design blends the two seamlessly.
