Mid century House midcentury-exterior

Mid century House

Photo by Maggie Cole Architectural Photography.
The addition of the Privacy wall at the left of the new French doors provides a very tranquil retreat for the new patio area. The geometry is strong, here rectilinear shapes are seen in the openings at the top of the wall and in the muntins of the French doors, tying into the existing house window. The diagonal of the limestone paver pattern draws the visitor from the house to the pond.

The chairs were made by Southern Cross Trading Co., out of New York state. Unfortunately the company closed several years ago, and the chairs are no longer available. Maybe you can find some used ones on Ebay. They are excellent quality, made of cherry wood.

I thought the big tree stump was a water feature/ fountain at first!

No, but the cutting down of the tree is what opened up the yard to sunlight, and made the watergarden possible. The photo was taken from across the watergarden, where there is a stream and waterfall.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Small Decks Hold Loads of Potential
A small deck not only provides a transition between the architecture and the yard or patio, but it allows for amphitheater-style seating.
