Low Country Home's Stunning Back Deck
Two sets of French doors connect the great room to the back deck in this rustic home, which is elevated 10 feet above ground level and boasts stellar views of marshland. Walls of glass blur the line between inside and out. Great-room trusses, visible from the back deck, take on added drama once night falls.
The 2013 HGTV Smart Home includes has a stunning back patio and grilling space. The covered outdoor kitchen allows for year-round cooking, and the expansive deck and beautiful dining space are perfect for those summer barbecues.
The yellow front door creates a stunning visual contrast against the blue Cape Cod home. A small deck features built-in bench seating, while a paver walkway leads through the flower beds around the back of the house.
Long, low lines characterize the architecture of this modern California home, nestled into a hilltop in Sonoma County wine country. An al fresco dining space is sheltered from the sun by a sleek patio roof, meanwhile enjoying stunning views. The dining area, as well as a pair of modern chaise longues, overlook a contemporary swimming pool.
The front porch of this coastal Low Country cottage is the perfect place to relax at sunrise. Neutral geometric prints add interest to the plush outdoor furniture that's perfect for reading or taking in the view. To combat the harsh sea air, the home features weather-resistant cedar shingle siding and Garapa decking, a durable, sustainably harvested tropical hardwood. (HGTV Dream Home 2013)
