Daily life extends beyond the experiences inside our homes—it’s also about taking in the world and community around us. Putting this idea front and center, Brookfield Residential is blurring the lines between indoors and out, crafting new homes with spaces and features that embrace the great outdoors. Whether it’s outdoor “California rooms,” terraces or courtyards, we’re integrating indoor-outdoor living to enhance every day and create the best places to call home.
The Chapman plan at Santa Rita Ranch in Liberty Hill, Texas has indoor-outdoor options that take al fresco living to the next level. Imagine starting your day with breakfast on your covered patio and concluding the night by entertaining family and friends in your private courtyard. With additional options to add a second-floor deck or outdoor dining at the patio, there’s more than one way to take in the open air.
For the ultimate in California living, look no further than Beverly at Eastwood Village in Irvine. Here, we let the outdoors play a central role in each day by incorporating spaces that invite nature in. From the expansive second-floor terraces, dubbed “California terraces,” with fireplaces and bi-fold doors to the California rooms (think outdoor living room) complete with an entertainment bar, it’s easy to enjoy your surroundings without ever stepping outside your home.
The California terrace has never looked better at The Collection and Jewel in Playa Vista. Thanks to the sleek modern design, open living areas and eye-catching style, these buzzworthy indoor-outdoor areas are not only grabbing wide-spread attention—they’re also becoming the spaces that Playa Vista and Silicon Beach are known for. With these luxe terraces that extend the already spacious homes into the coastal air, it’s no wonder The Wall Street Journal and CNN International are keeping tabs on this community.
When it comes to outdoor living spaces, Laurel, Merritt and Citrus at Emerson Ranch have checked off all the right boxes. In these Oakley, California communities, outdoor rooms expand life beyond the home, inviting residents to dine, lounge and gather just steps from the great room or dining room. It’s connected, seamless and home.
By blending indoor and outdoor spaces, we’re not only changing the way people live but also transforming the traditional idea of home. And we can’t wait to see what’s next.
