A 10-room contemporary home in Sands Point, on the market for $2,799,000, has a surprising feature in the backyard — a Japanese waterfall garden.

When homeowner Reuben Seguritan bought the house in 1987, he called upon landscape designer Hal Inouye to create a waterfall feature for the in-ground pool. The designer took advantage of the sloping backyard to create a natural stream that rushes 20 feet down a bed of rocks, then flows into a pond that overflows into the pool producing a waterfall effect.

Other features of the five-bedroom, 4.5-bath home include an eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, den, two fireplaces, seven skylights (including one in the master bath), a deck off the master bedroom and an attached three-car garage. There is also a tennis court on the 2.45-acre property.

The listing agent is Ruben Velasco of RSV Properties.
