Set in stone

An elegant new patio serves as an extension of this couple's home

The wood-burning fireplace, with its custom designed screen, allows evenings on the patio to be extended well into the fall.

A grill station, custom built to match the original stone of the home, includes a refrigerator, ample storage, and plenty of countertop space to handle a party.

An intimate conversation cluster, near the dining area, is the perfect spot for a pre-dinner cocktail.

A curved sectional settee, made of all-weather wicker, adds to the relaxing feel of the inviting lounge area.

The same bluestone pavers used on the floor of the screened porch are continued to the outside patio for a smooth transition.

Hydrangeas, ferns and hemlocks line the path leading from the lounge area to the dining space.

A bluestone sidewalk, leading from the driveway to the front door, is framed by a boxwood hedge.

Event planner Sean Moseley adds just the right touches to set the mood for open-air entertaining.
