These stunning outdoor spaces vary from seven to 12 feet deep and range from 22 feet to nearly 150 feet long. They are seamless extensions of the main living room, separated by floor-to-ceiling walls of glass with slender framework and no horizontal interruptions to virtually eliminate the visual distinction between indoor and outdoor space.

Wide plank European white oak floors run throughout the homes, while custom kitchen islands featuring crafted “marine-edge” Carrara marble countertops and integrated bookshelves become a focal point in the room.
