Entertainment-Ready Backyard with Infinity-Edge Pool and Spa
Colored lighting gives a fun, glam vibe to this elegant infinity-edge pool and spa, part of a sprawling estate in College Grove, Tennessee. Glass walls open to bring outdoors in, and the entire outdoor area enjoys sweeping views of the nearby lake.
The remodel of this contemporary, lakeside backyard features a built-in fire pit, lighted pool and hot tub, and an array of tiered terraces designed for lounging, dining and relaxing. Vein-cut limestone creates a sleek, neutral backdrop that lets the infinity pool steal the show.
1930s Mediterranean Villa Set on Oversized Lot With Stone Gate
The approach to this 6,400-square-foot home is so peaceful that few might guess that the lot is actually located in Los Angeles. Tall palms surround the property, offering a sense of escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, while an unassuming white gate guards the entrance to this extraordinary estate.
Colonial Home With Covered Front Porch Supported by White Beams With Spacious Grass Yard
A soft siding color is contrasted with black shutters and white support columns. The brick from the walkway continues onto the covered porch with outdoor sitting space. The healthy grass yard gives off a natural, colorful glow.
An expansive motor court makes for a stunning entry to this modern Palladian home. Low concrete walls help to define the space, separating it from the beautiful landscaping beyond. At the entryway is a spout water feature and large zinc urns to welcome guests into the home.
As if this outdoor space weren't alluring enough, an accent wall with a TV and bar makes leaving nearly impossible. A metal chandelier draws interest to the textured ceiling overhead, while curtains can be pulled out to block the wind.
A resort inspired backyard is perfect for entertaining lots of family and friends in this tropical vacation home right on the beach. Summers are well spent sitting on the patio sipping drinks and swimming in the pool.
LEDs line the edge of the pool and change the water from its usual blue to bright green, red and even purple. After an evening swim, the owners will definitely enjoy sitting back and watching the display.
After soaking up some sun on the deck, the owners and their kids can cool off in the pool. A blue tiled accent wall with three water fountains makes the space feel even more refreshing.
