Spring has sprung, and with the new season has come the siren call of the outdoors. The best way to answer the call? To enjoy it from the comfort of home! Fire pits, lounges, outdoor kitchens, and other exterior amenities offer the perfect outdoor escape – no travel required. As we embrace the spring weather and leave winter’s gray skies behind us, we are pleased to present this curated selection of outdoor living from Howard Hanna’s Homes of Distinction program.
This five-bedroom, Tuscan-inspired statement home features all of the indoor and outdoor comforts you need to welcome the season in full force. In addition to stunning interior design and furnishings, this home boasts a lush backyard oasis. Bringing the outdoors to you, a wall of glass in the vaulted four-season room opens to a lovely pergola, outdoor kitchen, and in-ground pool. It’s an enchanting setup with everything you need to plan a relaxing Sunday in the sun.
Nestled on 2.2 private acres, this beautiful stone-and-frame estate boasts a gorgeous outdoor living space. After admiring the new quartz counters, limestone flooring, and other lavish interior design elements, you’ll quickly be called outside to the tranquil back yard, where the hardest decision you’ll make is choosing between relaxing in the oversized 20’ x 50′ in-ground pool or strolling through the formal gardens. Afterward, you can spend your evening on the stone terrace by the stylish hand-cut stone fireplace.
This incredible Sewickley estate set amid eight scenic, private acres offers the perfect spot for your next staycation. Inside the spectacular home, you’ll enjoy a half-court indoor basketball court, a racquetball/squash court, and complete locker room facilities, including a sauna. You can head out to the salt water pool surrounded by stone waterfalls or linger inside just long enough to visit the magnificent wine room before returning to the expansive patio to sit back by the fire.
After passing through a gated entry, you’ll find 39 acres of picturesque, landscaped grounds surrounding an exquisite, two-story brick farmhouse that displays wood ceilings, custom built-ins, and gorgeous hardwood floors. Outside, you’ll definitely want to visit the pool house, which offers a wet bar with granite counters, refrigerators, a dishwasher, and an ice maker. Between sips and bites, you can lounge by a fireplace, enjoy an outdoor theater, soak in a hot tub, go for a swim, or watch children create hours of fun in a large playhouse.
This glamorous, contemporary estate on 5.8 acres is perfect for those who live to spend days by the pool. Five bedrooms include a first-floor master suite, and the home is filled with extensive woodwork and the finest finishes. Once you’re ready to head outside, you’ll find an in-ground pool with a hot tub, a pool house, and a covered patio waiting for you. Not to worry, though – on those rainy days that ruin poolside plans, an exquisite library will help you pass the time until you can return to your favorite part of this home.
This immaculate, six-bedroom home offers Tuscan charm and an outdoor setup that you will fall in love with.
