HGTV Dream Home 2013: Side Yard Pictures

The ground-level gathering area accommodates both outdoor dining and relaxation.

  • Oversized Southern yellow pine piers double as archways that frame the ground-level patio area, where dining and relaxation hold equal court.

  • A pine-straw-covered bed of native plantings and seagrasses provide a subtle screen of privacy without impeding marsh views.

  • All-weather woven chairs cozy up to a glass-topped table, ideal for both formal dinners or a table surface to focus on family craft projects.

  • Soft all-weather cushions in a coastal blue that complements interior decor pop against the dark hue of woven wicker-style chairs.

  • A makeshift chandelier of zinc hexagon-shaped lanterns illuminates the table top. The romance of candlelight elevates the dining experience in this casual gathering area.

  • A series of six candle-filled lanterns are strung from natural sisal string; the height and location are slightly staggered to lend visual appeal.

  • Resembling loosely tossed beach pebbles, the pervious cement patio anchors the space and allows rainwater to quickly drain underground.

  • Two chaise lounges, crafted in material identical to dining chairs, face the marsh and provide spectacular views both morning and night.

  • Double saloon-style doors, fashioned from garapa wood, open to reveal an outdoor shower outfitted with a four-setting hand shower, garapa floor and sauna-style bench. Cellular PVC side walls are designed to resemble slatted garage walls and offer both a watertight and waterproof barrier.

  • In keeping with Low Country style, HGTV Dream Home 2013 boasts cedar shingle-style siding and extended eaves with undersides clad in Southern yellow pine soffit material.

  • A trellis, fashioned from Southern yellow pine, defines the entry to the two-vehicle garage.

  • The all-new GMC® Acadia® Denali®, lets passengers ride in comfort with seating for seven or eight. Innovations include new Color Touch Radio with IntelliLink and capacitive-touch controls.
