The outdoor patio in this Houston, TX, home offers the perfect place to relax after a long day. The rounded, stone retaining wall offers a divide between the natural landscaping and pergola-covered patio, with a large stone fireplace for chilly summer nights.
This breezy covered patio is high on style and function. The roof offers protection from the Texas summer sun, while a fireplace provides warmth even in winter, turning the patio into a year-round space. A mounted TV creates a great spot for game watching and adds to the home's outdoor entertainment options.
An outdoor living room features a mix of design elements, from the reclaimed woods on the coffee table and ceiling beams to the clean, contemporary lines of the woven and upholstered seating. The space is sited to take advantage of the sweeping coastal views, and it also opens to the indoors via a wide retractable glass wall that slides into a pocket door. Traditional lanterns light the space, giving a nod to the Mediterranean architecture.
