The covered back porch and patio steps and floors previously had different shades of concrete. Concrete Craft covered the concrete with a coating, imprinted it with texture and hand-carved the design to make it look like hand-laid stone.
Design Styles Architecture transformed this once-boring home into something spectacular. This backyard is nothing short of a resort and is perfect for family gatherings, entertaining guests or sampling taking a dip in the pool.
Every detail of this home is modern, from the sleek stairway near the pool to the low-profile chaise longue that rests beside it. Inside and out, slatted wood sheathes walls for a neutral, restful effect.
A set of grass covered steps leads from the main house down to the paddocks and barn area. To define this feature from the lower level, natural stone was added to the face of the steps. This addition allows for a pop of color in the landscaping as well as creates a separation between upper and lower spaces.
When considering a renovation, the homeowners had several items on their wish list. The back stairs needed to be restored; the eat-in area needed to be updated, and the homeowners wanted the individual spaces in their home to be defined, so designers made these dreams a reality. The stairs that had been closed off have been renovated and are now functional. The eat-in area has been modernized by pushing the walls back to create more space and by adding a red accent wall and modern furnishings. To create the delineation homeowners wanted between spaces, designers dropped the ceiling to create a clear pathway from the front of the house to the back, giving each space its own separate area while still keeping the home connected.
A sleek pool, spiral staircase and welcoming back porch are among the custom features that make this home's rear elevation unique. Stately columns separate upstairs and downstairs balconies that maximize the home's outdoor living space.
