location: Dana Point, California
With wide-open views and breezeways, this plantation meets west-coast themed masterpiece literally brings the outside in. The Summerset grill is framed beautifully in matching stone while the eating area is pleasantly tucked away under the classic white suspended porch. The mix of textures of outdoor hardwood furniture, like teak or ipe, with stone pavers, creates a dichotomy of warmth and cold that is aesthetically pleasing and functional. Such an experience is beautifully crafted and engineered to take in all that the stunning Southern California coast has to offer.
