Now that the kids are off to college, what would you like to do with your backyard—make it the perfect place for entertaining?
Here are some great suggestions: Columned arcade inviting friends and family to make their way from the street into the backyard. Barrel vaulted ceiling midway in the arcade providing visual interest. Extensive bluestone patio offering plenty of outdoor space for guests to sit and relax or move about as they mingle.
The patio is easily accessible from the street, as well as from the outdoor room, providing perfect traffic flow for large groups. Warm and inviting arcade lighting—visible from the street—says, “Welcome!” All finishes are low-maintenance to make cleanup a breeze.
