Doing dishes is anything but a chore in this kitchen with a full wall of windows offering views of the Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., home's verdant back yard. White cabinetry and marble countertops are elegant without distracting from the beautiful scenery outside.
A sunny bedroom, one of six in this Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., estate, enjoys views into the property's beautiful back yard. An en suite bathroom with freestanding tub offers a spot for unwinding at the end of the day.

With its own spa, a custom waterfall and an infinity-edge pool, this backyard from Surrounds Landscape Architecture + Construction is a stunning oasis tucked into a Virginia neighborhood. Boulders and plants along the edge of the lot further the sense of privacy and seclusion.
The stone patio surrounding the backyard pool leads to a beautifully landscaped flower bed. The flowers that have been planted are both flowering and non-flowering and will bloom throughout the season.
The raised beds were used to solve drainage problems the lot had. Stone walls allowed for screen plantings along the fence and have room to plant seasonal color in front of them to add some appeal to them. A dry creek bed with oversized gravel meanders throughout the backyard to catch all water runoff from the patio and surrounding beds.
