    On a hot summer day, one of the best places to find respite is on a covered porch with a glass of iced tea in hand. These five homes offer shelter from the elements and charm with a view.


    Take a seat on this shaded, 85-foot, elevated stone terrace overlooking Swallow Lake in Bedford, just steps from the shimmering infinity-edge pool and waterfall. This outdoor living space is just one of the many compelling amenities at this superb, supremely private, waterfront Modern. Live the dream with over 250 feet of lake frontage and your own private dock!


    This screened porch provides three-season living space in a sophisticated, three-bedroom, Waccabuc home. The Hunt Farm property surrounding the Cape Cod-style house features a recently renovated Gunite swimming pool, perennial gardens, stone walls, and a lush lawn.


    Enjoy year-round views from the sun porch of this conveniently located, Bedford property that includes specimen gardens, pathways, plantings, spring fed pond, and a heated Gunite pool. The six-bedroom, contemporary deck house blends harmoniously into its hillside setting.

    With a stone floor underfoot and a ceiling fan overhead, summer evenings are a breeze on this covered porch in Pound Ridge. Enjoy arresting views of the rugged landscape from the front porch or the back deck of this 3,909-square-foot, four-bedroom home (additional, sun-filled square footage on the garden level).


    What a beautiful place to start your day!  Enjoy breakfast in the screened porch of this expansive, updated shingle-style Waccabuc home. Downstairs, an amenity-filled garden level features a home theater with cinema-style seating, arcade, full-appointed bar with billiards/media area, roller hockey rink with locker room, and a second kitchen. Outside, you’ll find expansive lawns and a swimming pool with a terrace for entertaining.
