Modern Backyard Turned Private Paradise
Tucked into the hillside and encircled by trees, this outdoor space by designer Elizabeth Przygoda-Montgomery seems like something out of a dream. Here, visitors can take a lap in the infinity-edge pool, stretch out on either of the lounges, or cozy up by the fire pit and enjoy views of the desert at sunset.
A main focus in designing this home was to accommodate and entertain large numbers of overnight guests and full amenization of the lakefront property. It was important not to block any of the lake view but still make the spaces have minimal impact on the steep site. A boathouse roof shades metal stools and tables outside while modern chaises create an area for sunbathing. Horseshoe Bay stretches out around the boathouse, which is surrounded by a metal railing.
Exterior View of Modern Gray Home With Stone Walkway Through Garden
This modern home features box shapes, long windows and a gray tone which is a beautiful contrast against the natural colors from the surrounding yard. A stone walkway leads from the house through the garden area.
This split-level home was renovated to create more interior space. Outside, a wraparound deck with custom cable rails, sliding glass doors and exterior lighting were added to create a more modern look.
Overhead, two metal beams run parallel to each other and create a clear line of sight from the courtyard to the home's interior. Subsequently, the two living spaces feel connected, which makes the property seem larger and more open.
Bright Colors and Mixed Textures Add Life to Backyard Oasis
To give life to the backyard space, designers added lime green and coral accents, making the backyard bright and modern. Pebbles, decomposed granite and colorful plants add texture and visual interest to the cool, new space.
This beacon in the woods features a sleek, curving metal roof and a glass-wrapped exterior punctuated by natural wood beams. Its elevated design gives it the feel of a modern, high-end treehouse. Inside, the house is modern but warm.
Clean lines and low-level garden walls provide sweeping views of the desert and city skyline below. In turn, the backyard turns an everyday feature into a stunning visual display and so celebrates the local landscape.
