On sunny afternoons and balmy nights, there’s nothing like relaxing with family and friends in your own private outdoor space. Whether you’re overlooking the water, or your own backyard, creating an outdoor oasis when you build a new home is a must!
There are many elements that come together to make a great outdoor space – from the outlook and materials, to the ease of access and flow through to indoors. So to give you some inspiration for your own new home, in this article we’re sharing 5 of the best outdoor living spaces from our modular projects.
Buxton, Yarra Valley, Victoria
With spectacular views as far as the eye can see, the outdoor space in ourBuxton project is nothing short of stunning. The merbau decking is large and open, which really immerses it into the sense of space and beauty of the picturesque surrounds of the Yarra Valley. The flow from theliving zone within is seamless, with large bi-fold doors opening up to merge the spaces together. This feature is important, as it gives you the option of enjoying the outdoors from the comfort of within.
Metung, Gippsland, Victoria
A key focus of the design brief for the contemporaryMetung project, was to maximise the views, and the elevated decking does just that. Running along the front and side of the house and enjoying magnificent water views and gorgeous sunsets, the decking is the place to be at any time of day. With multiple access points through sliding doors in both the living and masterbedroom, it’s easy to slip out for a quiet moment, or a longer sitting with family or friends.
North Arm Cove, Mid North Coast, NSW
The outdoor space in ourNorth Arm Cove project, has nailed the perfect balance between style and comfort, and is the ideal haven to enjoy the gorgeous water views in every season. The covered alfresco area allows for comfortable furniture and protection from the elements, while the open decking means you can bathe in the sunshine or enjoy the starry sky as you please. There is also multiple sliding doors in the living zone, as well as from the master bedroom that offer easy access to this stunning outdoor space.
Patonga Beach, Central Coast, NSW
The unique and beautifulPatonga Beach project was designed with attention to detail every step of the way, and the outdoor space includes some clever features that take it to the next level. The bi-fold sliding doors create an easy flow outside to the spacious decking, which is part of the wraparound verandah that gives the home its timeless character and appeal. The inclusion of a bi-fold window in the kitchen makes entertaining that much easier and enjoyable, and keeps the host in the kitchen involved in the outdoor conversation and fun. The verandah roof partly covers the space and can be extended out further to protect from the elements as needed, which allows for easy outdoor dining and entertaining throughout the year.
Somerville, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria
The outdoor living zone in ourSomerville project is essentially an extension of the indoor space, with the enclosed roof and corner location allowing for all the creature comforts needed to be comfortable, day or night. With multiple entry points from the living zone through large bi-fold doors, comfy couches and a lovely rural outlook, this is one outdoor space that draws you to it, in every season.
