Thanks to a thick wall of trees and shrubs, this swimming pool and patio enjoys complete privacy. Flagstone gives dimension to the patio and has a more natural look than concrete. Teak lounge chairs offer respite from the sun or serve as the perfect spot to tan.
With an outdoor kitchen, bar and grill, this modern backyard is ready for hosting a crowd. Sliding glass doors encourage cool breezes to filter inside, while plush sofas and chairs keep guests comfortable.
This contemporary blue and green outdoor lounge offers the perfect place to relax and enjoy the outdoors while cooling off in the luxury pool. The lounge decor complements the rustic stone Tuscan exterior of the home.
Perched 10 feet above the ground, this 600-square-foot deck, clad in durable garapa wood, is an outdoor extension of the home's great room and provides a cinema-like experience of the natural surroundings.
An outdoor dining table and chair set made from durable teak offer a comfortable spot to enjoy dining al fresco and relaxing on the pool deck. A second floor veranda also enjoys views of the swimming pool at this Santa Ynez Valley estate in California.
While staying true to the architecture of the house, modern design elements were incorporated as well. The barbecue enclosure is veneered with limestone in a subway tile cut, while a trellis added to the garage adds shade over the outdoor kitchen area. Due to the limited space of the backyard, the original backyard did not provide adequate lounging space for the homeowners. A dry deck is added within the pool perimeter, using lightweight blocks to ensure no unnecessary weight was put on the existing gunite shell.
The patio view from this midcentury modern home is stunning: A pool in the distance is lined with lounge chairs for sunning and surrounded by the endemic trees of the region for privacy. Near to the home, an outdoor dining table and living area provide ample space for entertaining, and a fire pit adds warmth and pizzazz.
