The fragrant 'Eden' rose.

An arbor with a cascade of 'Autumn Sunset' roses and clematis frames the view of Vancouver Lake and the verdant West Hills of Portland, Oregon, that drew homeowner Candace Young to the property she has converted to a year-round retreat.

A potted viola hybrid adds color to the pool.

Candace in the arch of the walled courtyard off the master bedroom, where she enjoys first light.

Cistus purpurea is potted at the pool, where color is more vibrant than in the rest of the garden.

Centered by a fountain, the lower garden is a pocket of privacy.

Oh-so-pretty petunias.

Fragrant rosemary covers the retaining wall in the pool court.

An outdoor kitchen is part of the pool court. Because it is on the outer side of the home's exterior wall, a copper roof provides shade and breaks up the verticality.

A brick path with a pergola beckons visitors to the pool court.

Details make a garden--like this lion's head fountain in the private courtyard off Candace's bedroom.

'Eden' roses spill fairy-tale like into the walls of Candace's private courtyard.

Flowers in terra-cotta pots alongside the bluestone steps help give the pool court its vacation vibe.

Details, details, details.

Can't you hear it buzzing?

The property captures a view of Vancouver Lake and the hills of Portland, Oregon.

Candace's granddog, Winston, strikes a dignified pose.

Interest is added by an iron inset in the wooden door leading to a swimming pool notched into a hill.

The brick terrace is a good place to enjoy the sunset.

A beautiful Jacquemontii birch tree shades the terrace.
