The expansive backyard space features a lush lawn of Zoysia grass and is bordered by a natural fence of native trees and shrubs. A deck, constructed of eco-friendly decking material, is the ideal spot to sunbathe or fire up the grill and cook for a crowd. The hard-working unit – complete with granite-style countertops and manufactured stone base — includes a rotisserie, infrared burner and side griddle, plus a refrigerator to store ingredients and keep drinks cool. To conserve water, a bocce court with crushed shell surface cover replaces a traditional backyard water feature and is the perfect spot to gather with friends.
