The northwestern Wyoming home and barn is dominated by jurisdictional wetlands and natural water courses, so man-made water features are a natural enhancement to the landscape. In the front, the pond butts against the foundation of the barn and family room. The water exploits the glass chinking between the logs of the barn, providing a quietly dazzling mirror image of the barn.
The bedrooms in the main residence overlook the gardens and lagoon. Guests have a private, two-room suite separate from the main house that is attached by a breezeway and accessible via a private staircase.
This beachfront home is actually made up of two buildings: a main residence with four bedrooms and an adjacent two-bedroom guest house connected by a breezeway. The pool and spacious patio sit in between for both to use.
A covered loggia connects the garage to the main house, as well as teases a view of the rear garden. Blue pottery decorates the breezeway and speaks to the same cobalt-colored tile that lines the pool and fountain.
The Ponte Verda Beach home evokes a Mediterranean style with stucco exterior walls and adobe-style roof. Open breezeways are punctuated by classic white columns and house comfortable outdoor living areas. The pool flows seamlessly with the lawn and patio.
This entryway easily sets the tone for the whole lake house, as its clean lines and raw materials offer a glimpse of what's to come. Through the door, guests will arrive at a sophisticated stone breezeway.
Enormous windows allow expansive views onto this home's outdoor areas, like the contemporary patio. The opening in the wall on the other side of the patio is a breezeway that leads from the main house to the master bedroom suite.
In addition to a covered patio and breezeway, this guest house comes with its very own outdoor kitchen. Bright blue cabinets enliven the space and provide storage for plates, tablecloths and other supplies, while a stainless grill makes it easy to prep dinner.
Entertaining space was important to these homeowners, so designers made sure to add ample dining space both inside the house and outside. One such space is this home's breezeway that accommodates two tables that seat four people. The tables are sturdy, weatherproof wicker with outdoor cushions for comfort, and, since they are protected by the breezeway roof, homeowners can use this space in rain or shine. To top off the elegance of the space, this outdoor dining area is situated directly in front of beautiful ocean views, making it the perfect location for a sunset dinner or sunrise breakfast.
Separated by a breezeway and outdoor space, the two-level tower that adjoins the Pinewood Forest Idea Home by Atlanta designer Sherry Hart suggests a hip grotto custom-made for a visiting artist or a cool getaway for the teenagers of the family. A space-saving spiral staircase leads to the upstairs bedroom.
The symmetrical entrance and rigidity of a traditional colonial are softened by the shingle style and supplemented by stonework. An angled garage wing responds to the natural contours of a plateau on which the house sits, addressing the natural landscape as well as clients' needs.
Natural materials in earth-tone colors were used to make this house feel at home. Though it is only two-stories on the front facade, the dormers and chimney pots help to elevate an otherwise horizontal structure. The breezeway to the left of the garage allows guests to reach the rear-yard pool without going through the house.
