The backyard features cedar siding, outdoor brick fireplace, professionally designed landscaping and a crisp, white patio that runs the length of the home and leads into the infinity edge swimming pool.
The resort-style home features a living room enclosed with floor-to-ceiling windows that reveal a show-stopping water view. A bright, colorful sectional and coordinating ottoman give the room a fun, tropical vibe.
The stunning pool area is just one of the gorgeous water features the home has to offer. Just beyond the outdoor space lie wide and long waterfront views that provide a magnificent vantage point looking down the Intracoastal Waterway in Northeast Fort Lauderdale.
A beautiful swimming pool with a sleek infinity edge makes the home's backyard feel like a luxurious retreat. The wraparound porch and balcony overlook the pool, providing countless options for entertaining.
This living area, one of the home's many, boasts the same style of wall used in the spiral staircase — a combination of heavy gray stone and brilliant blue sea glass. The living space also features chic white furnishings, which provide contrast against the warm wood ceiling.
This dining area features a sleek wood dining table, modern white dining chairs and orange midcentury modern pendant lights for a dynamic look. The dining space, situated by a cozy living area and a large stone fireplace, fits beautifully in the home's open floor plan.
With gas prices and travel expenses rising, the backyard is becoming vital when it comes to leisure, says Scott Cohen, landscape artist of The Green Scene in Canoga Park, Calif. Taking vacations at home means designing your backyard like a resort with all the amenities. Waterproof plasma flat-screen TVs and swim-up bars are all fair game.
The open plan kitchen features a spacious island with plenty of barstool seating for an eat-in option on casual nights. The kitchen's crisp white color palette creates striking contrast against the warm wood ceiling.
