There is nothing I love more than a gorgeous outdoor seating area. As a Realtor I see countless houses every week, and what impresses me most is when a home has a cozy, inviting outdoor space. In Oregon they are still fairly rare because of all the rain, but they are becoming more and more popular. The nature in Oregon is fantastic, and homes are really starting to capitalize on the outdoors!
The only essential element in an amazing outdoor space is cozy seating, but good lighting and decor are also very important. Bonus points include a fireplace, firepit, or water feature, and of course a great view!
