A request from a Tampa family to replicate a favorite resort in their own backyard was answered by award-winning pool and outdoor space designer, Ryan Hughes in his signature “over the top” manner. Inspired by a 5-star resort, the Ballmont Lazy River project created streaming waters built to flow around and through an elegant and commercially appointed outdoor space literally outside the family’s back door.
Flowing for over 200 feet, the river passes fire pots and fire features, sunken spas, and multiple venues for outdoor gathering and relaxation. While infusing his internationally recognized expertise, Hughes was able to incorporate tremendous wow into the overall design as well as elegance and personality. The Mediterranean design style of the home and the personal preferences of the family were integrated within the 1.5-million-dollar project. The design provided ample space and bountiful experiences for family fun to a gathering of 500. Private relaxation was also addressed by incorporating a dedicated owner’s patio with lounge seating, spa and landscaped privacy.
