Family Grows in Cherokee Park
Outdoor family living is paramount at this streetcorner home, which integrates seamlessly into its bustling young neighborhood. Careful screening and circulation offer privacy yet create an inviting facade. Preserved live oaks anchor the design elements of the front yard, including several custom structures and edible plants. In the back, it’s time to play.

It has been a pleasure to watch this family grow, and to help them realize their vision of outdoor living. An extensive palette of edible species was used at this residence, including fruit trees, herbs, and vegetables. Native pollinating plants provide a haven for birds and butterflies. Ample space for thriving young children includes a swimming pool, sport court, and soft zoysia lawn. Reclaimed brick walkways compliment the classic architecture of this family home.
