Finding a piece of paradise in this world is something we all aspire to. For some, visiting iconic islands and getaways is the goal, but what if we could find paradise in our own backyards? This Virginia home has created a magical space of beauty and comfort with a combination of modern, transitional, and rustic styles. Surrounded by dazzling woods, this backyard is a comfy and stylish living area under the stars. The expansive patio is composed of large 2'x3' identical stone tiles for a unified, modern look. A custom wood-burning fireplace is the centerpiece of the living area and is surfaced with country cultured stone veneer. Chic and cozy furnishings lure guests to relax by a second fire feature for lounging or tranquil book reading. Adjacent to the living area is the outdoor kitchen, built with the same stone veneer and ready to grill whatever the occasion calls for.
The grill island is both sophisticated and rustic. Leathered black granite is glossy and elegant, while the stone's striking textures perfectly complement the austere landscape. Fitted with a built-in 38-inch TRL from Summerset Grills, the kitchen has plenty of cooking power to grill a couple steaks for a romantic dinner or a bunch of burgers and dogs for a birthday party. Matching stainless steel accessories add dry storage and trash storage to keep it classy and organized. The other part of the kitchen island features bar-style seating for four to hang out by the cook under the moonlit sky. With distinct areas for entertaining, grilling, and eating, this backyard paradise has it all. The designers of Outdoor Dreams have masterfully orchestrated a dream backyard retreat, making paradise accessible to these homeowners every day.
