We are just about finished with this magnificent multi level outdoor living fabulous country estate in BETHEL, CONNECTICUT.  The sprawling nature of this two level outdoor living space is to blend with the cohesive nature of the home and landscape.

That is why Outdoor Living Fabulously designer and masterful outdoor kitchen builder  hand selected stones that matched the veneer of the house to construct towering columns of stone in a flowing formation upholding the deck above and allowing plenty of swim up and off the patio distance to the outdoor fireplace underneath on the lower level. With a total transformation of the back yard area, the first vision was to redirect the stairs to the opposite side of the deck. The mainstay of the deck space was now enlarged and used accordingly to entertain fabulously. The outdoor space works seamlessly for small gatherings and family outdoor dining. The sprawling nature of the multi level usage of the outdoor kitchen and pool below outdoor beverage and bar area opposite side of the upper level deck works to the advantage of a buffet spread as well by using the large granite counter. With the dining area centered in between the outdoor kitchen island and the bar and beverage center one must say living outdoors can entertain fabulously.

Downstairs below in the weatherproof and waterproof space Gotowala transformed this into another expansion lot living beyond the walls of your home outdoors fabulously. A zero clearance wood burning fireplace, curved granite outdoor dining space amongst massive stone columns and stucco make for the perfect selection of a great outdoor room.

The country estate of this home has increased in value and offering more family time spent outdoors for everyone. Now thats priceless.
