This stunning 10,000 square foot home sits on 1.13 acres in Port Chester, New York, just a short drive to the heart of New York City. White columns frame the stone terrace, as well as several windows located on the rear exterior, both providing ample opportunities to take in the view. The backyard also features a luxurious pool area.
A variety of paving materials, including limestone, ipe wood and blue beach stones, were used to fill the ground space in this New York City backyard, adding a sense of serenity and flow to an otherwise small and elongated area.
This marble-clad bathroom is luxury itself with a fun pop of pattern coming from the polka dot shade. Here's the extra decadent part: French doors seem to lead out to a leafy backyard. But that's actually a rooftop terrace in the middle of New York City!
Evergreens in custom ipe planters line this modern urban backyard and provide privacy from neighboring buildings. New York City fire code limits the amount of wood decking that can be used in terrace and roof design, so the designers turned this limitation into a design feature.
Even small urban spaces can incorporate water features. This Minneapolis backyard is only 27-by-64 feet, but the landscape plan by Southview Design carved out space for a water fountain created with slabs of stacked New York bluestone. The overall yard won an award from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.
Because New York City has fire regulations specifying the amount of SYNLawn artificial grass an occupant may use, the landscapers made an efficient choice by placing a simple children's play area atop a bed of the grassy stand-in. Children can play in this Soho backyard while adults enjoy a beautiful day outside in the pergola only a few feet away.
