Gone are the days when design focused exclusively on a home's interior. Seamless indoor and outdoor living is a growing trend as homeowners are investing in extraordinary outdoor entertaining areas, including patios, porches and of course, pools. Here are a few standout outdoor spaces taken from Houlihan Lawrence's inventory of luxury homes for sale that will leave a lasting impression.
A waterside pool deck cantilevered over a sparkling lake offers a breathtaking backdrop for outdoor entertaining at Mystery Lake in Pound Ridge.
An outdoor fireplace, a vanishing edge pool with a spa and a pergola-topped dining area overlooking a picturesque apple orchard offer plenty of diversions at Stoneleigh in Armonk.
At The Mill House in North Salem, the rushing Titicus River serves as a memorable "water feature" edged by a handsome terrace and waterside pool.
The lush gardens, stone terrace, 60' pool and hot tub at Reservoir Retreat in Cross River comprise a quiet haven overlooking the Cross River Reservoir.
The outdoor recreation amenities at Windsor Court in Purchase rival those of a luxury resort with a fully-equipped bar, outdoor video and sound system, two pools and a pool house with a full kitchen.
