Outdoor lights strung across the backyard of this stately home give the space its "wow factor" and add a festive ambiance. Ample windows and terraces connect the house to the backyard and brings the indoor and outdoor spaces together.
Stairways—both concrete and corten steel—connect this terraced backyard. All around the stairs are a graceful mix of perennials and grasses, with planters helping to soften the transition between levels.
Our backyard is precipitously sloped so until we decide to invest major green in terracing and remedying that problem, our deck and screened-in porch are our primary backyard destinations. My collection of Skotch Koolers do double duty as a side table in the space.
This jaw-dropping backyard features a covered patio with multiple seating areas, a grass and tile terrace, an elevated hot tub and a luxurious infinity pool. Multiple balconies offer views of the backyard so it can be enjoyed from different vantage points.
