Patio espléndido

Designer - Jonathan Spayde , Lumber for pergola - Fifth Avenue Lumber

Written by: Kathleen Doane

The new outdoor living space behind an historic home in the Grandview Heights/Marble Cliff neighborhood has several dramatic features: a large tiered pergola, a striking flagstone patio and a two-sided fireplace with a chimney that rises nearly 20 feet. 

The owners wanted a place to relax, to have fun with family and friends and a sanctuary to enjoy nature. Creating a design and surrounding landscape that would meet those needs and match the style and aesthetic of their unique house was no small task. The planning stage lasted more than two years, and it took six months to build.
