Outdoor Oasis: Elevated Backyard Gathering Space

Perched high on a hill, this backyard overlooks acres of woodland. To help the owners enjoy the view, the landscape designers outfitted the space with an outdoor kitchen, dining set, fireplace, porch swing and even a putting green. In turn, the yard becomes a gathering space for the whole family.

Patio With Stone Fireplace

Half of this patio is open to the sky; the other half has a clever roof with aluminum louvers. The stone fireplace is double-sided so everyone anywhere can enjoy the view.

Patio at Night With Pergolas

To make the patio usable day or night and in lots of weather, designers installed pergolas with louvers that rotate. There are also fireplaces, outdoor heaters, lighting...everything for ultimate outdoor living.

Pergola and Golf Green

The pergola overlooks this home's personal golf green. For non golf-enthusiasts, there's an outdoor fireplace, a swing chair and a large outdoor dining room.

Outdoor Fireplace and Golf Green

This incredible backyard comes with so many options for a lazy weekend: putting practice, a fireside chat, daydreaming in the hanging chair.

Putting Green and Fire Pit

Schedule tee time anytime! This backyard nestles a putting green in between the outdoor kitchen and dining area and a fire pit.

Golf Green

Take a swing or two or ten! This luxury backyard comes with its own private golf green.

Outdoor Bar and Pizza Oven

A beer and a pizza, cooked up in this home's outdoor pizza oven, are just the way to wind up the day.

Outdoor Bar With Pergola

After golf practice (there's a golf green just below this patio), retire to the luxurious outdoor bar. Overhead heaters ward off evening's chill.

Covered Patio With Pergolas

A series of pergolas connect to make this patio ultimately livable. They shield an outdoor kitchen and bar, a large dining table and a fireplace.

Outdoor Bar and Kitchen With Tap

This outdoor kitchen includes a tricked-out bar with a keg tap and pizza oven. Guest can pull up a barstool or lounge by the fire or in the swing chair.

Swing Chair With Girl

This large swing chair has enough room for two to snuggle or one person to lounge.

Outdoor Sitting Area With Hydrangeas

This petite sitting area is shielded by pretty grasses and hydrangea. The fire pit keeps everyone warm and the space is treated to views of the golf green just below.

Sitting Area With Stone Fire Pit

Two cozy sitting areas—one with a fire pit, one with a fireplace—book end this backyard's putting green.

House Exterior and Pergolas

A porch and gracious patio extend off the back of the house, offering up lots of outdoor entertaining potential including a bar, dining area and a well-stocked kitchen.

This outdoor kitchen and dining room are as luxuriously outfitted as any indoor ones. There's a television, pizza oven, prep sink, grill and views of the private golf green.

Outdoor Dining Room and Kitchen

Outdoor meals are nearly always comfortable because of this patio's careful design: The louvered roof can rotate as needed. There's a deluxe outdoor kitchen, that includes a pizza oven, as well as outdoor heaters and lighting.

Covered Patio With Kitchen and Bar

More a series of outdoor rooms than a patio, this covered outdoor space includes a chef-grade kitchen, dining area and several sitting areas.

Covered Patio With Louvered Roof

For this patio, designers paired cutting edge technology with a laid-back Mediterranean look for luxuriously comfortable outdoor living. Aluminum louvers on the roof rotate to let in light or keep out the rain. There's also a large outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven, outdoor heaters and a fireplace.

Outdoor Pizza Oven

For gourmet outdoor dining, this patio kitchen is equipped with a pizza oven as well as a grill.
