Patios and Pools are Perfect for Gatherings

A dream of living on the river and a lot with a spectacular view inspired Jennifer and Tony Stigall to build their dream home with Stanley Homes. Homebuyers, like the Stigalls, come to Stanley Homes with an initial dream or design inspiration including the desire to build an outdoor oasis to enjoy the natural beauty of Florida.

Custom builders and their partners can offer a seemingly unlimited number of features and upgrades to create the perfect outdoor experience for each homeowner.

Jennifer and Tony designed their home from scratch with Stanley. The couple had already purchased a lot and were looking to build their dream home. “It had been our dream since we got married to live on the river,” Tony said.

Their remarkable home takes advantage of the view with an outdoor space that centers around a summer kitchen where guests can sit at the bar while Tony grills burgers. Kids can play in the pool while the adults have a cocktail relaxing in the large sitting area that is perfect for lounging, with a fire pit and breathtaking views of the river. The upstairs of the home also has a wraparound balcony with views of the pool below and the Indian River. The couple have now lived in their dream home for a month and “couldn’t be happier.”

“Having lived out west for a number of years, we didn’t want to be separated from the incredible Central Florida weather with a screened enclosure around the pool,”says Clint Clouatres.

A few of the features being added are:

  • Glass mosaic tiles
  • Decorative art decals
  • Multi-color LED lighting
  • Fountains and rock waterfalls
  • Underwater sound systems
  • Vanishing edges
  • Beach entry
  • Pebble faux finishes
  • Salt water pools
  • Sitting areas with tables

Clint and Paula Clouatre’s lanai also abounds with exquisite features, including a flatscreen television and multiple column-mounted twisting-torches. Their pool is punctuated with dual fire and waterfall bowls.
The rear of the home features expansive double sliding-glass doors that yield stunning views and sounds of a multi-terraced, natural toned pool and spa. It’s also finished with a summer kitchen, a large-screen television and an outdoor sound system, as well as an anti-mosquito system that does not require a screen.
Stanley Homes prides itself on working with the same group of hand-picked skilled craftsmen (sub-contractors) for nearly a decade. For the homeowners, an outdoor space is a display of their unique tastes that accommodates their individual lifestyle, so why not make your backyard your own resort?
