Dreamy Outdoor Entertaining
Talk about a great spot for entertaining family and friends! This beautiful home located in Phoenix, AZ is a brand new Mediterranean estate with finishes that take quality to a whole new level! Custom ceilings, phenomenal woodwork, mind blowing wood beams with iron accents and dramatic architectural elements create an amazing ambiance in this home! Entertaining by the resort style pool is an absolute dream and the pristine mountain views will take your breath away! Wine cellar, wet bar, wood flooring, granite, marble, iron, canterra stone fireplaces are more of what this European inspired dream home offers its lucky owner!
Beautiful single story stone and stucco home located in Austin, TX. The elegant Tuscan patio offers a glimpse of the surrounding countryside. The outdoor entertaining area has a heated in-ground salt water pool and a hot tub! Imagine spending a hot summer day on this gorgeous patio! You have the pool, kitchen and the comfort of a sitting area that is more than words can describe!
An elegant Tampa estate on over ½ acre, this pristine property is perfectly positioned on a three sided conservation home site and offers a stunning front elevation complete with a beautiful fountain and gated, courtyard driveway. If you thought that was great, wait till you check out the back of the house! The lanai is oversized and boasts a stunning pool package with a pavered deck, multiple rock waterfalls, 8 person Jacuzzi and outdoor kitchen. I personally love the little palm trees surrounding the pool! Just imagine, a beautiful night out, under the stars, can it get any more romantic than this?
True Luxury Experience
Now if you are all about the view, guess what? You can still create an outdoor oasis for yourself to enjoy the view even more! Check out this San Diego home that was completely remodeled in 2007. The home features a landscaped front yard with lightning and sprinkler system, slate flooring in the office and roof top hot tub!! Now that’s what I call a million dollar view! The home captures the harbor, Point Loma and La Jolla views from the wrap around patio. Enjoy unparalleled views and sea breezes!
Which style of outdoor living do you prefer? Since most of us can’t afford these types of homes with outdoor living areas as luxurious as this, try turning your patio, porch or deck into a comfortable outdoor room with all weather furnishing, low maintenance materials and your favorite garden collectibles!
