Veranda Passage

The north veranda is the second of the home's four porches, accessible from the living room, garage and screened porch. This gracious covered veranda is designed as a passage between the garage and the house, and as an outdoor living space.

Wide Staircase

A wide staircase leads from the house to the open-air dining area and offers easy access to the fire pit, which is one of the Green Home's most unusual features. This gathering space features six Adirondack chairs.

Wicker Seating

The south veranda is the fourth of the home's porches, accessible from both the great room and master bedroom. The porch also offers easy access to the backyard. Sit in the comfortable wicker chair and enjoy the view of the south garden and the lagoon.
