These homeowners love to entertain, so designers built them an outdoor barbecue area in their backyard. With a propane grill, counter space and easy access to the indoors through windows that connect the space with the kitchen, this addition makes the backyard the perfect place for a cookout.
This beautiful country cottage has been renovated to include a warm color palette that plays on the warm, California sunshine let in by skylights and expansive multi-pane windows and French doors. The ceilings are high pitched and feature exposed beams, creating the cozy cottage feel in this just over 2000 square foot home.
The Solis Two Porsche Drive hotel adjacent to the Porsche Experience Center, has become the go-to destination for visitors checking out the driving experience at Porsche. Part of the booming city rising in the shadow of the airport, the "aerotropolis" of Hapeville next to Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport—the world's busiest passenger airport—is just 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta and has a lot to recommend it for both car-crazy adults and their child companions. The 8-story hotel itself overlooks—at key vantage points—the Porsche Experience Center racetrack. The rooftop Overdrive Lounge offers the best public view by far of both Porsche and the airport and there are also 9 track-view suites. The rooms themselves are insulated with triple-pane windows from flight noise. For transportation-obsessed kids, this is a once-in-a-lifetime convergence of planes, trains (train tracks pass right in front of the hotel) and automobiles all viewable in close proximity to the property (there's even a Delta Flight Museum close-by for flight fans). For quick and easy access to downtown Atlanta, I-75 is in close proximity to Solis. You can sit on the outside patio of the in-house restaurant Apron and watch planes come in for landings and eavesdrop on visiting German Porsche execs relaxing after a day of work at Porsche's North American headquarters. To continue the Porsche tie-in, two Porsche Cayennes offer VIP transportation to the airport and auto artwork abounds: there are car murals in the lobby and car motif art in the 214 guest rooms. There is even an in-house Porsche themed gift shop to take home a souvenir.
