7 Great Outdoor Living Spaces

June 7, 2018

Outdoor living spaces can be a hot selling feature for homebuyers—especially in the spring and summer! We’ve rounded up seven of our favorites from across the country for you to browse and share. Whether your clients are looking for a bigger backyard or a lower-maintenance space with all the bells and whistles, this list could be a great conversation starter to help you narrow down their likes and dislikes.

1.  The backyard of the Perry model home in Menifee, California.

<strong>Why do we love it?</strong><br />Designed to take advantage of the Southern California sunshine, this backyard is an entertainer’s dream. Conversation spaces and outdoor cooking facilities make it easy to host everything from big backyard bashes to small summer soirees. And did we mention the view from the master suite’s balcony?

2. Pretty much anywhere outside the Raven model home in Queen Creek, Arizona.

<strong>Why do we love it?</strong><br />A stately pergola and outdoor fireplace crank up the wow factor in this already spectacular model home near Phoenix. Multi-slide patio doors allow you to bring the outdoors in, so you can enjoy the desert breezes on the covered patio or inside the vaulted great room. For more intimate gatherings, the Raven offers a courtyard that opens onto the dining room.

3. This terrace topping the Kenyon model townhome in Elkridge, Maryland.

<strong>Why do we love it?</strong><br /> This beautiful Baltimore-area deck proves that great outdoor spaces aren’t just for sunny climates and big homesites. There’s space to stargaze with friends or cozy up with a good book. And a wet bar just inside makes it easy to keep the refreshments flowing.

4. The Peyton patio, modeled in Manteca, California.

<strong>Why do we love it?</strong><br />NorCal’s feature-packed Peyton boasts a built-in kitchen with yards of prep space and a serene, mission-inspired water feature.  Enjoy the Bay Area sunshine (or moonlight) from the comfortable seating… Or retreat to the covered patio and open the folding glass doors to take advantage of both indoor and outdoor amenities.

. The Dalton model’s veranda in Jacksonville, Florida.

<strong>Why do we love it?</strong><br />If there were such a thing as backyard curb appeal, the Dalton would have it in spades! This popular plan offers coastal charm with a modern twist: wide multi-slide doors leading onto the white-columned veranda. Is there a better way to beat the heat than sipping iced tea in the shade, beneath the lazy currents of dual ceiling fans?

6. This backyard at the Beverly model home in Las Vegas, Nevada.

<strong>Why do we love it?</strong><br />A wide balcony gives the Beverly model a second story of outdoor fun! Easy access from the great room and nook makes the covered patio a natural extension of the home’s entertaining spaces. Any meal can be alfresco!

7. The patio of the Robert model home in Cave Creek, Arizona.

<strong>Why do we love it?</strong><br />No list of outdoor living spaces would be complete without the Robert. This ranch plan is in demand throughout our sunbelt markets, due in part to its seamless flow of indoor and outdoor spaces.  Each Robert model home is a little different, but if you have a chance to tour one near you, be prepared for your clients to fall in love!
