The landscape design at this Dade City estate is as lofty as the home's moniker

Hinting at the elegance hidden inside, these wrought iron entry doors welcome guests to a majestic outdoor living space with everything imaginable for entertaining.

To achieve a lagoon look, this eight-foot-deep freeform swimming pool has a black reflective bottom and black granite waterline tile, all of which is finished with black pearl pebbles.

A pergola subtly strung with lights offers a shady place to take a break from the sun during the day and a quaint place to catch a meal at night.

A curved, stone diving bridge bisects this swimming pool design. On the right, waterfalls splash merrily from the spa to the pool.

A cozy porch swing faces away form the pool and lush plantings in this covered oasis, but it faces an equally impressive landscape design.

Plants are peppered throughout every inch of this outdoor living space, form foxtail palms, Christmas palms and pigmy dates to giant birds of paradise, philodendron and crinum lilies.

A spiral staircase leads from the upper level of this home down to the the covered outdoor oasis, which includes five waterfalls, a koi pond, pool with a diving bridge, a porch swing and a dining nook.

A six-foot high boulder waterfall with stepping stones splashes merrily into this lagoon-style swimming pool.

A 20-foot-long concrete koi pond adds to the serenity embraced by this relaxing, multi-tiered oasis.

An outdoor water fountain gurgles pleasantly in this courtyard area. The unique shape draws eyes and adds character to the space.

A tiled outdoor shower is tucked into a far corner of this outdoor living space, allowing guests to easily go from pool to spa to pergola for a late-night bite. The design keeps up with the overall elegance of the space without sacrificing it's functionality.
