Covered Patio With Arched Doorway and Exposed Ceiling Beams
This covered patio lets you enjoy the great outdoors in style. Exposed ceiling beams highlight the home's architectural style, while an open arched doorway to the backyard mirrors the arched doorways into the house.
Lounge chairs with neutral cushions are positioned next to this backyard pool, creating the perfect spot for relaxing. The adjacent cabana area provides a bit of shade, while tropical plants decorate the backyard.
At the center of this luxurious private estate garden is a relaxing swimming pool, which features a sun shelf and an attached spa surrounded by bullnosed limestone coping and dimensional limestone paving. The stone pool terrace is lined with boxwood hedges to balance the soft textures of the trees and flowering shrubs. A custom timber beam pergola is anchored by stone piers and a low stone wall that defines the terrace space.
The U-shaped design of this modern home in Lugano, Switzerland, is complemented by the undulating lines of the courtyards that surround it. Glass walls open the 3,658-square-foot structure to views of Lake Lugano and surrounding mountains.
Perfect for outdoor entertaining, this modern patio is conveniently located next to the pool. Bold, orange armchairs and a simple wood dining table offer a casual spot to dine outside. A pair of metal ceiling fans keep the space cool during the hotter months.
Spacious Covered Outdoor Sitting and Dining Area With a Fireplace
This peaceful covered outdoor area features wood furniture and wicker tables positioned in front of a fireplace. Teal cushions and decorative objects add a pop of color. Nearby is a dining table with wicker chairs and just beyond is a view of the gorgeous pool area.
In addition to the pool house and bar, an intimate conversation area underneath a wood-paneled vaulted ceiling is illuminated by the soft glow of lighting. The space is filled by the warmth of the double-sided fireplace.
Clean lines and low-level garden walls provide sweeping views of the desert and city skyline below. In turn, the backyard turns an everyday feature into a stunning visual display and so celebrates the local landscape.
A warm wood retaining wall features the home's address number that complements the exterior. Lovely green shrubs and plants fill the landscape, and a gravel walkway leads the way to the front entrance.
