What are the facets of an award-winning outdoor living design?
This beautiful project in Davenport Ranch in West Austin bespeaks ultimate luxury in outdoor living with a truly one-of-a-kind detached covered porch. This jaw-dropping W. Austin porch is large, inviting, comfortable, and chock full of custom details.
Facet 1: White Limestone
Not only does this porch include a massive white limestone outdoor fireplace, but is surrounded by a half-wall, steps, outdoor kitchen with walk-up bar, and column details in matching material. The substantial size and use of the stone masonry are dramatic, while the white and off-white finish offers a clean, unostentatious aesthetic.
— Stunning white limestone outdoor fireplace with wood storage and wall surround.
Facet 2: Western Red Cedar Ceiling and Open Rafters
The western red cedar details abound throughout this outdoor living space but are arguably most impactful in the open rafters design.
— High-impact western red cedar ceiling and rafters are center stage in this design!
The columns, TV enclosure, and custom railing cap play in perfect harmony with these rafters, tying the whole space together.
— Substantial cedar columns tie in literally and figuratively with the ceiling design!
— Cedar railing caps are the cherry on top of this custom powder coated railing!
Facet 3: Lighting – Everywhere, Lighting!
Most of us, who have a favorite outdoor living space, truly enjoy being there after dark. Whether we host parties, just a couple of friends, or prefer relaxing outdoors at night, lighting is a crucial function and design element.
— Custom recessed lighting, pendant lights, chandelier, sconces, and riser lighting showcase this covered porch design and surrounding areas at night.
Facet 4: Hot Tub
Well, an all-inclusive outdoor living space naturally includes a place to take a dip. In this case, we have a hot tub with sweeping city views. Seriously divine!
— Hot tubs ups the outdoor living opportunities for this beautiful space – and why not?
Facet 5: Standing Seam Metal Roof
Of course, if the cover is beautiful on the inside, it must be lovely outside too! This metal roof is the perfect addition to the overall design of the space. Stone, wood, metal, fire, water. Just a perfect way to top off this gorgeous space!
— A view from the top never looked so lovely!
Facet 6: Perfectly Matches the Home
One important part of a great outdoor living addition would be in that it doesn’t look like an addition at all. This detached porch perfectly matches the home and other structures on the property.
— Every elemental detail is in keeping with the existing details and structures on the property.
Facet 7: Keeping it Cool
This fantastic porch has built-in sun protection and is open enough for great airflow, but a little extra will go a long way under the roof of this West Austin covered porch. That extra is provided with multiple ceiling fans, as well as post-mounted oscillating fans, that are not only stylish, but functional!
— Warm summer breezes will be multiplied by fans mounted throughout the space!
