The pattern of the stone on the car barn's exterior closely resembles a building on the Franklin Delano Roosevelt estate. The Springwood estate, located in Hyde Park, N.Y., served as inspiration for this structure. Many mockups were erected and knocked down before finding the perfect blend of four different stones.
French doors open up the interior living space to elegant, inviting patio. Red brick grounds the space, which is surrounded by lush flower beds and beautifully potted plants. Old World-inspired furniture pairs with cool blue pillows to reflect Mediterranean style.
The deck and patio span the length of the entire house so that almost every room has access to outdoor space with stunning views. In traditional Mediterranean style, the pool boasts stucco posts with fountains and diamond-patterned stone tile around the perimeter.
Mediterranean-Inspired Backyard Perfect for Entertaining
The Mediterranean home seamlessly blends the indoors and out to create a space that's both family friendly and great for entertaining. An outdoor dining spot is shaded by a deep blue umbrella, while cozy seating areas are space throughout the patio. Speakers hidden behind the Japanese maple trees softly fill the air with music, while smart landscaping provides privacy.
One of the fun design moves in this spectacular outdoor space: a pathway leading across the pool from one side of the patio to the other. Trellises on the home's outer walls make the ivy part of the look as well.
