Historic home protects private back yard outdoor living haven

To round out their outdoor living area, these homeowners included an outdoor bar that eases the burden of entertaining.

These homeowners decided to honor the home design of this 1830's house by keeping the interior primitive and reviving the unused back yard into a place that reflects the period look, but includes modern conveniences.

The fireplace was one of the original features of the back yard when it was used in a detached summer kitchen. To make good use of it in this new pavilion, the remodelers simply turned it around so it faced the pavilion.

Because this home is located in an urban area, a water feature was very important to the family due to its ability to drown out some of the traffic noise.

A myriad of furniture was placed in this pavilion.A cushioned sofa and chair provides plenty of space for this family to kick back and watch a game on the television while a nearby table and chairs create a cozy eating space.

This patio includes cushioned outdoor furniture which serves as a spectacular place to lie back and enjoy a sunny day and the gorgeous surroundings.

These golf-loving homeowners inserted a putting green into their landscape design. The added feature originally clashed with their ideas to center their home around it's original 1830's period design, but got around that dilemma by carefully tucking it away behind a fence.

Despite the homeowners insistence to honoring this home's history to a time long gone, they did include a television in the pavilion for their convenience.

With an umbrella to provide the desired amount of shade and a grill at the ready these outdoor bar stools are the perfect place to spend a casual afternoon or evening.

A garden bench sits just off of the patio and provides a relaxing place to sit back and admire the blooming flowers.
