With a panoramic view of the mountains and rolling hills, it’s no wonder that these homeowners created an outdoor living room to enjoy year-round. There are two tables for dining al fresco and plenty of comfortable seating around the fireplace.

A gate wasn’t essential here but it does add a lot of charm to the entrance to a courtyard. The color is subtle but striking against the natural stonework.

Nothing is better than a walk through the woods in the fall. A raised wooden walkway makes the experience even more enjoyable and keeps your feet dry, too.

A fence keeps critters out and gives homeowners the privacy they need.
Building the fence out of the same logs as the home is a great design idea.
The water running through the stone creek bed produces a calming sound.

If you want an outdoor space that works for all seasons, consider adding a fireplace to the chimney you are already planning for the indoor fireplace. Since the stonework is already in place, the extra cost is minimal. Having both covered and uncovered decks increases your enjoyment of your property.

Imagine sitting in this outdoor spa, breathing in the clean mountain air and admiring the incredible view. The boulders around the spa create extra seating and give the area a more natural look. You can finish the evening in front of the firepit at the rear of the terrace.

The stone-covered arch in this porch perfectly frames the garden around the property. The stonework and the arch continue on the fireplace with its raised hearth. This is a space for all seasons. You may recognize this unique stone from our Bedrooms Gallery; this is the outdoors that made it inside to fantastic effect.
