As a real estate agent I can tell you that nothing sells a home as well as a beautiful outdoor living space. Even if the view is only of the city lights people just love it. When you walk into a house with large windows and you can see straight out the window to the outdoor space everyone wants to head right out to the backyard. Just image relaxing on these lounge chairs and looking over the city at the mountains with a glass of wine. The wonderful thing about this deck is that the rail is made of clear glass so you can enjoy the view even while sitting down.
Many of my clients have asked me for advice when remolding their outdoor space and I always advise a clear rail even if they have to cut cost on some other aspect of the decorating. Whenever I show a home with outdoor space and you cannot sit down and still enjoy the view the buyers are disappointed.
Just last week I sold a home with no view but it still had a wonderful outdoor space. It was a beautiful deck with a fireplace.
Although the home is just 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean in southern California the previous owners had a fire year whenever they would entertain; even in the summer. It was always cool enough and just made things a little cozy. The buyers hope to bring some of these ideas to the outdoor space.
Have fun outdoors whenever you can!!!
