A pair of Adirondack chairs is placed strategically to enjoy the waterfront vista from the backyard of this 4,400-square-foot luxury home on Massachusetts' Chapoquoit Island. A red brick patio is tucked onto a sweeping lawn, while sculpted landscaping offers privacy and pretty views. The Cape Cod-style house offers water views from every room.
Brick red paint makes the unique, slanted awning above this patio pop. The home's modern profile is juxtaposed against its soft, leafy surroundings, while large windows and ample outdoor spaces connect indoors and out.
Designed for entertaining, the outdoor kitchen's counters double as a prep area and serving space. Old World-inspired furniture is a comfortable spot to relax, while beautiful flowers bring color to the space.
Dining al fresco never felt so intimate despite the large patio. The patio is carefully divided into spaces that all flow together, from the dining area to the cozy seating areas. Market lights strung from the house to the tree create a warm and romantic atmosphere.
This two-story residence reflects a coastal Craftsman style, using a mix of natural materials. The roof and exterior walls feature stained wood shingles accented by white trimmed doors and windows. Gray cobblestone walls define the brick porches, where the family can dine al fresco.
Teak rocking chairs are a perfect spot to relax in this welcoming backyard oasis. Trellises full of climbing plants add color and texture to stucco exterior walls of the Mediterranean home, and rustic wood windows create a striking contrast.
French doors open up the interior living space to elegant, inviting patio. Red brick grounds the space, which is surrounded by lush flower beds and beautifully potted plants. Old World-inspired furniture pairs with cool blue pillows to reflect Mediterranean style.
White columns pair with rustic wood beams for a Mediterranean-inspired pergola, while an Old World chandelier and cozy fire pit illuminates the space in the evenings. Teak furniture features comfortable navy cushions with white piping to reflect the overall style of the backyard.
This round red flagstone patio squeezes in several inviting features, including lounge chairs, a clay chiminea and a dining table with an umbrella. Black Mondo and green Pennisetum grasses offset the red flagstone surface.
