HGTV Dream Home 2004: Screened Veranda Pictures

With pop-out screens, the veranda is perfect for entertaining and for cooling off on a warm summer day.

Versatile Porch

One of the most versatile spaces in the HGTV Dream Home 2004 is the screened veranda. Cool breezes, shade and ceiling fans make the screened-in porch area a perfect destination on a hot Georgia day, and if you love a good thunderstorm, you'll find yourself taking it in here. The screens, which keep summer insects at bay, pop out in a jiffy.

Outdoor Gas Fireplace

One of my favorite elements in the house is the screened-in veranda with the fireplace,\" says architect Barry Coyle. \"It's a perfect place to sit in the evening and it's also the perfect place for breakfast.\" With one flick of a switch, the gas log fireplace jumps to life.

Perfect for Gatherings

The sturdy teak dining table can seat six - perfect for close friends, wine and plentiful snacks. Three sets of French doors leading to the great room and dining room provide open access for mingling and approaching the expansive view of the adjacent marsh.
