Pelican Hill, CA, Oceanfront Project Receives HGTV People’s Pick for Best “Picturesque Landscapes”

This stunning, Pelican Hill, CA, oceanfront project, designed by landscape architect Marc Scott Associates and installed by D.L. Hickman & Son Inc., has received the 2018 HGTV People’s Pick for best “Picturesque Landscapes”.

This luxurious pacific retreat captures imaginations at the curbside with a custom quartz walkway and patio. As visitors make their way toward the house, they will pass through a bank of inviting, outdoor seating and be treated to a absolutely stunning views of Newport Harbor.

Then they will be met with a cascading set of natural stone stairs, complete with a handsomely understated wrought iron rail that opens to the walkway alongside lovely fountain and pool.


The back of the home certainly doesn’t play second fiddle to its front. There, the eye is drawn to the breathtaking vanishing edge pool, which offers an unobstructed view of the stunning hillside bathed in California sunshine. The stunning vista begs to be enjoyed from the poolside recliners that are set on natural stone.

Pre-cast, custom coping that borders the pool compliments the interspersed landscaping and the home’s adobe and natural stone facade. Likewise, tasteful and strategically placed lighting solutions offer a sense of enduring warmth and comfort into the sunset hour and beyond.

For cool evenings and autumn days, the pool’s three water heaters provide ample warmth; one controls the lounge area, one controls the pool temperature, and one controls the spa temperature. Visitors to this home will find nothing short of an oasis for the mind, body and spirit.
