Outdoor Spaces

The Most Instagrammable

Our lives have all changed since the pandemic started, and the way we use the spaces in our homes has changed right along with it. Outdoor spaces have quickly become one of the most sought-after residential features this year, as they allow us to convene with nature, enjoy the fresh air and feel a sense of tranquility without ever leaving the comfort of our homes. A beautifully designed backyard can easily transport us into a world of our own, where the problems of the world seemingly melt away. Waterfalls and pools, well-manicured lawns and gardens, firepits and fireplaces, sitting areas and more go a long way towards creating an inviting outdoor space that family members and guests can all enjoy (six feet apart).  To get you inspired for the rest of the summer, we scoured to find five of the dreamiest, most instagrammable outdoor spaces in homes currently on the market right now.

Completely private, it is the perfect setting for safely entertaining friends and family — or simply sitting back with a glass of wine for two.
