Back Exterior: Beachfront Mediterranean in Naples, Fla.
The back of the home boasts expansive balconies and covered patios — all with a view of the luxurious swimming pool, pristine lawn and stunning ocean. The fun, lighted fountains provide visual separation between the swimming pool and lawn.
Mediterranean Villa Includes Fire Pit Spot in Backyard
To the right of the swimming pool, a few wooden benches allow the owners and their guests to take a seat around the fire pit. Because the spot is laid with gravel instead of flagstone, it feels like both a natural part of the backyard and a "room" of its own.
Mediterranean Patio At Dusk Features Infinity Spa, Luxurious Pool, Warming Fire Bowls & Enchanting Lounge
Drawing inspiration from elegance of the home’s Italian Villa-like elements, this luxurious outdoor space transports family and guests to a Mediterranean retreat. Warming fire bowls and water features spring to life at dusk illuminating strong columns and arches surrounding the uniquely shaped pool. A circular, elevated infinity spa with chic mosaic tile anchors one end of the space while a crowning pergola with sofa and fire pit create an enchanted lounge space at the other.
Grand columns and dignified lion statues flank the entrance to the front porch, offering a sophisticated first impression. Beautiful front doors with wrought iron detailing provide an elegant entry into the home.
This Mediterranean-inspired home is surrounded by lush landscaping and an air of whimsy. Built around a grassy courtyard, the home is sited to take maximum advantage of its large lot and native foliage.
Improving Mediterranean curb appeal involves attending to wrought iron balconies, gates and fixtures with a fresh eye, and perhaps repainting with a product like Behr’s Alkyd Semi Gloss Enamel, that works equally well on plaster, aluminum and wrought iron.
An ivy-covered wall, pavers with grass joints and trees all around help this outdoor space feel at peace with the landscape. In the center, a sunken swimming pool invites the owners to slow down and soak up the beauty of their surroundings.
Outdoor Dining Area Shines With Fireplace, Bistro Lights
With a long table and six cushioned chairs, the back patio makes dining al fresco virtually effortless. During the day, the pergola offers shade from the sun, while at night, bistro lights and a custom fire pit keep things warm.
