Outdoor living is about experiencing the beauty of the outdoors while making memories with loved ones and friends. Whether in mild climates or those that bring all four seasons, you can transform your backyard into a personal retreat from your busy life. This home in central Florida features a beautiful garden and entertaining space sectioned off using landscaping and stone retainer walls. Centered around a warm and natural pergola, the yard features manicured greenery that provides privacy and natural beauty around the custom built-in fire pit. The pergola offers refreshing shade over the grill island and adds height and scale to the relatively small space. The homeowners wanted to use the area well into the night, so they installed matching posts to hang outdoor lighting strands for enchanting evening ambiance. With plenty of seating around the kitchen, it's the ideal place to relax during sunset with a refreshing drink and great food.
The outdoor kitchen, nestled under the warm pergola, consists of two islands finished with a dark stacked stone veneer and topped with pristine granite countertops. The grill island houses a Summerset Grills Sizzler Pro to keep the food coming throughout the party. The larger island is "L-shaped," with two-tiers providing plenty of prep space and bar seating for six. Featuring a built-in stainless steel sink, ice chest, refrigerator, and dry storage, the outdoor kitchen has all the amenities to stay outside throughout the day. The experts at Xclusive Outdoor Living have crafted a modern gardenesque getaway in a compact space that is both private and inviting. With gorgeous foliage, warm tones, and high-end features, these homeowners can enjoy their retreat for years to come.
