La Jolla Home With Scenic Overlook
Though it's located on one of the best streets in La Jolla, Calif., the back of this home was once overrun with myoporum and acacias that blocked views of the canyon and ocean. To help reclaim the rear garden, the Torrey Pines Landscape Company cleared away the plants and added a modern living and entertaining space beneath the pergola.
Painting the shutters and front door black on this traditional home creates a visual rhythm. The white picket fence and stone columns framing the white gate provide a beautiful frame for this well manicured yard.
A cheery striped awning covers the poolside cabana of this contemporary California home. Woven outdoor furniture is stark and modern, with clean lines and a crisp black-and-white color scheme. Bursts of bright yellow add a stylish touch and pop against the neutral fabrics.
Covered Front Porch With Brick Floor, Neutral Siding, White Support Column and Black Window Shutters
Brick flooring grounds this light, neutral front porch design. White columns support the porch cover and keep the space open to the surroundings. Black planters match the black window shutters and red accent pieces add a final touch of color.
Brick patios surround the inviting swimming pool and stretch out to the outdoor kitchen, comfortable seating areas and dining spots. The covered pavilion and pergola provide much-needed shade on a hot day.
Boost curb appeal! There’s much ado about curb appeal in the real estate world with good reason — many potential buyers make a first drive-by trip to see your home and decide then and there whether attending the open house is even worth a visit. This curb appeal is vibrant and filled with year-round color from beautifully diverse foliage. There is always something new blooming each season!
Magnificent Yellow Floridian Mansion With Tropical Landscape
This sunny traditional mansion sits directly on the Gulf of Mexico, offering immediate beach access and a lush tropical landscape. The front of the home boasts a large stone water fountain encircled by a classic red brick roundabout driveway. Several outdoor terraces provide plenty of options for enjoying the view.
Centered in the backyard is a relaxing pool, anchored by a reclaimed brick-clad spa. A copper-screened cabana house includes an outdoor kitchen, fireplace and temperature controls for year-round comfort. Under the vine-covered pergola is an outdoor firepit and seating area, perfect for nighttime gatherings.
The stone patio with its brick-veneered fire pit and multi-level seating makes for an inviting and entertaining outdoor space that's easy on the eyes. Cushioned outdoor chairs invite guests to linger around the fire pit while taking in the beautiful view of the traditional brick home and professional landscaping.
Due to the decline in the property, the front walkways and landscape had to be designed and built to help transition the grade. Curb appeal from the road is created with a professionally maintained front lawn.
Pairs of traditional rockers create an inviting entryway for this pool house, beckoning guests to enjoy the comfortable living room beyond. A pillared porch, brick pavers and trellised gable are among the traditional architectural elements that ground the space and give it presence.
This eight-acre property on Camano Island, Washington, features a 4,700-square-foot main house, a guest house, a post-and-beam barn, chicken coop, apartment and original owner's house. The property also offers flower and vegetable gardens, fruit trees and sweeping waterfront views.
