A garden surrounded on two sides by the lower level of this penthouse offers a private oasis for the homeowners, their family and their guests in the heart of Manhattan. Both levels of the home enjoy views of the garden.
The Mediterranean-inspired outdoor space combines multiple areas seamlessly, from the raised garden beds and hot tub to the outdoor dining room. Lush flower beds line the backyard, while potted plants and flowers add life and color around the space.
A balcony in New York City’s West Village becomes a lush garden oasis in this design from Urban Green which brings together a lovely mix of perennials, evergreens and colorful annuals such as petunias and topiary bougainvillea.
