This is the perfect alternative to lattice wood that is typically used for high decks. I personally dislike that look. I have a traditional colonial that is built on a slope. This would be perfect.

How tall is the patio wall?

My guess would be about 16 to 18" tall, because that's a comfortable sitting height. Making a wall high enough and deep enough to sit on is a good way to add extra seating to your patio.

How is the patio drained? - We want to have a patio at the same level as our interior floor as you have done. Our builder is reluctant to do this because he's concerned about water splashing up and damaging the doors and walls and also not having a good way of draining away from the house. Has this been an issue for you?

Which stone used for wall? - What type of stone was used in the wall? It is just beautiful... and we're looking for something similar. Thanks in advance for your help!

the staircase with upper deck and straight to patio works here. It also works color-wise because it blends with the house. Very cool. Except I wouldn't want to box in the lower area as it is in this pic.
