About the Barbecue Courtyard:
Designed to accommodate parties as well as more intimate alfresco dining, the courtyard — separated from the kitchen by an expansive accordion door — serves as a gathering space, a second dining room and an urban-chic alternative to a traditional backyard. "This is such a wonderful plan: Outdoor dining room and grill right next to the kitchen," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. "Open up the wall of windows and they become one great room."
