Lately I find myself more attracted to properties with well-designed flow between indoor and outdoor living areas … bathrooms leaing out to a private outdoor shower, kitchens with stack windows opening up to the entertainment areas, bedrooms leading out to patios or balconies and most of all living rooms designed to open up to the outdoor entertainment areas – placing emphasis on the indoor – outdoor living theme. This sets the tone for a relaxed easy-going lifestyle while extending the livable portion of your property, creating the impression of more space.
