The rear facade of this Brooklyn townhouse is painted all-black, a bold decision that lends drama to the traditional structure. A bricked terrace adds to the home's livable space, while a tall fence provides privacy.
The rear exterior of this home was designed to take advantage of the home's beautiful features. Each level has a balcony so that family and their guests can enjoy the view of the ocean and the pool below. On the lower level, a covered patio boasts several spaces to relax and even a dining space for al fresco entertaining. A swimming pool adds entertaining space to the backyard, while lounge chairs beyond the pool space give the couple a relaxing space to enjoy their view of the ocean.
From the rear of this modern-rustic ranch, the homeowners have access to all of their home's exterior spaces. From the more intimate, lower outdoor dining area and covered lounge space to the larger, upper level dining area with a grill space, each space is accessible from the home's interior, allowing for a seamless indoor-outdoor entertaining space.
At dusk, the rear patio transforms into a visual wonder, with vast stretches of sky overhead and a sleek fire pit to the left. Here, reclaimed wood benches and stools circle around the feature, creating an intimate space for after-dinner conversation.
