Real Project: King’s Creek Country Club – Rehoboth Beach, Delaware
Real Project: Kings Creek Country Club – Rehoboth Beach, Delaware
Real Projects is a series on back yard make overs completed by Ashton Group at the Beach. This real project highlights the challenge of transforming a sloped back yard into a multi-tiered multi use yard.
The homeowner’s intention for this makeover was to create a space for family and friends to enjoy in the summer months, when the beach and boardwalk are packed full of beach goers. We transformed this sloped yard to give this homeowner the entire package, an outdoor kitchen, pizza oven, bar area, fire pit area, pool and tanning ledge area, and even a turf field on the lower level for recreational use!
Outdoor Kitchen Area
The homeowners’ love grilling and with the installation of Twin Eagles brand grill equipment, they can do just that! Known for its high-performance grills, the homeowners’ chose the 36” grill head along with their Teppanyaki griddle, and an outdoor refrigerator to keep their meat and veggies cool while heating up the grill.
Cliffstone Boardwalk by Eldorado Stone and concrete counter tops make up the exterior of this grill, matching the rest of the project to give this all a uniformed look.
Outdoor Pizza Oven
Not only can you make your own pizza, this oven is large enough for roasting meat, veggies and create an entire meal to make and eat outdoors. Matching the grill area, AGB installed Cliffstone Boardwalk stone veneer by Eldorado Stone and concrete counter tops. Adding triple storage drawers and double doors underneath give ample storage space for the homeowner to keep any dry storage or cooking utensils.
Outdoor Bar Area
Perfect for any entertainer, AGB installed a Twin Eagles 30” outdoor bar, with a speed rail, an ice maker and fully functional sink to keep drinks cold and always pouring through the hot summer days and nights.
Pool and Tanning Ledge
The homeowner’s interest in a lounging area along with the pool helped us pick the Riviera 34 and tanning ledge in a crystal blue finish by Leisure Pools USA. This pool is large with several areas for sitting and long enough to swim laps for exercise. The addition of the tanning ledge adds an extra element to the water feature and any one can relax in and catch a tan.
This tanning ledge area is perfect for Ledge Loungers, custom lounge chairs sit perfectly in the water. Also available by Ledge Loungers is a table/cooler to create for total relaxation and hydration.
Fire Pit Area
Light up the night in this custom fire pit/ lounging area! AGB installed a 29” round propane fire pan with Cliffstone Boardwalk stone veneer by Eldorado Stone with Tuscany Beige bull nose coping that sits on top. This fire pit matches the entire project and has additional lounge chairs, perfect roasting marshmallows or keeping warm on fall night.
The lower level of this yard is covered with over 2500 square feet of synthetic turf. This creates the perfect space for family and friends to play a round of corn hole. The kids have space to practice for sports and the pets have tons or room to run around.
Landscaping and Lighting
Several varieties of plants perfect for the weather in coastal Delaware were placed throughout the back yard. A few different examples of plants that thrive in the coastal area are Dwarf Fountain Grasses, Liriope, Limelight Hydrangeas. Along with many others, these plants add beauty to the space and create a natural barrier for privacy.
Stepping stones for a pathway to the second level through grasses and trees add a natural aesthetic to the home. Landscape lights help with keeping this pathway lit after the sun goes down.
Surrounding the entire yard are large propane torches by Tempest Torch. These put off heat and light and illuminate the entire back yard. Maybe for a night time get together or a midnight swim?
