3 unique outdoor spaces for the prestige home

A prestige property won’t just be about an expansive indoor layout, more often than not they boast some significant outdoor features which make the most of a breathtaking view and an enviable location.

Beyond your standard deck or swimming pool, we’ve pulled together three ways that you can maximise your outdoor space in a prestige manner, highlighting creative, dramatic and over-the-top outdoor features where you can socialise, unwind and enjoy.

Fire features & conversation pits

 While the first thing that comes to mind is “70s”, the classic conversation pit has evolved into a desirable feature for outdoor spaces in prestige properties, a great way to nestle in and enjoy in all seasons.

This style of outdoor seating utilises a sunken or ‘depressed’ seating area, so guests are lower to the ground and focused around a table or in this case, a stunning gas fireplace feature. Forget the fondue sets of old, a dramatic conversation pit is the perfect way to take in the views of the Northern Gold Coast, be it sunrise or sunset, and to stay warm in the cooler months while never missing a moment of the surrounding natural beauty.

Whether in use by the teenagers of the family or as a great way to unwind after a more formal dinner, the conversation pit welcomes cosy seating and blankets to lounge in and stay protected from the elements.

BBQ in style

Whether you’re a budding chef or an experienced pro at the BBQ, a full-service outdoor kitchen is the ultimate way to welcome in spring and summer and entertain in style. Unlike your indoor kitchen, your outdoor version should have features that can withstand different weather conditions and exposure, and the kind of space and accessibility that lends itself to being used for everything from a “make your own margarita” station to a fine dining experience.

The prestige property goes above and beyond, not only looks but functionality and convenience, and what’s more convenient than only needing to walk a few feet to your outdoor fridge for a cool drink while you unwind poolside?

Ready, set, spa!

While home spas and saunas are becoming more accessible for the average home, some prestige homeowners are making every day a spa day with next-level luxury on their decks. For those who love nothing better than a deep tissue massage from the comfort of their home, a signature outdoor spa space makes the perfect location for a girls weekend getaway (or staycation!). Think multi-purpose use cabanas, complete with billowing curtains to let in the summer breeze, as well as massage tables, chairs to recline and unwind, Himalayan rock salt features and infrared sauna, why save those spa moments for holidays only?

Naturally, this kind of prestige home spa is perfect for a stunning view, especially beach or mountainside, so you can take in the sights and smells of nature while you unwind, and when you’re feeling relaxed enough to curl up in bed, your room is only moments away.
