Saratoga Outdoor Dining Area

This outdoor dining room features overscaled furnishings. A combination of This residence was remodeled to create a much more contemporary setting for the client's collection of extraordinary pieces by J. Robert Scott, Angelo Donghia, Leavitt-Weaver and Dakota Jackson. Our task was to bring these pieces together in a harmonious setting. We also extended the project to include the outdoor dining room furnished by Michael Taylor with cast stone and teak pieces. (1997-2001)

Question about Rafters - Are the rafters overhanging the facia board or are they flush to the facia board? Would it be possible to send me or post a picture of the outside of this? I love this patio cover. Thank you.

Thank you. This was featured a number of years ago in Sunset Magazine. I have no other photographs. he rafters look good, in my opinion extending beyond the fasia board, although that is not always possible.

Is it possible to get a picture of patio from inside view? - I love your patio. Wondering if I can get a picture of what it looks like from the inside view. We are looking to redo ours, not sure if doing a complete covered or something like this. Do you have wide spaces inside? Thanks!

There are no pictures taken from the inside. The breakfast room which this space is adjacent to is moderate in scale.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Cooking & Dining Under the Stars
There is an almost proper feeling to this outdoor eating area, with the foliage hanging from the pergola and a beautifully set table. The cooking area takes a back seat, and I can well imagine a gathering of beautifully dressed women sitting down and being served a wonderful meal in the afternoon or evening.
