The Outdoor Living Room is a cozy seating area with furniture that's resistant to stains and weather damage. The lighting is designed to provide gentle illumination in the nighttime that won't overwhelm the senses.
The landscaping around the outdoor living room affords some privacy. Meadow grasses and reeds blend in naturally with the surroundings, while separating the Outdoor Living Room from the yard. There are also curtains that can be brought down to make the living space more cozy, adding additional privacy and blocking any wind.
A gas fireplace set into the limestone wall adds warmth and beauty to the living area.
Boardwalks lead from one deck to the next, to give easy access to other parts of the outdoor area of the 2012 Dream Home.
