A superb outdoor haven for hosting and relaxation, this fully equipped backyard kitchen and dining area in Holbrook, NY, aims to reflect the culinary lifestyle of its residents. Above All Masonry worked alongside the owners of the home, a family of professional bakers, to conceive a multifaceted hard- and softscape that reflect the natural beauty of the surrounding area, transforming the yard into a hosting space for both large and small groups alike. The backyard kitchen, poolscape, dining area, and patio is able to accommodate up to 125 guests, simultaneously serving as a prime area for intimate gatherings.
The guest experience was at the forefront of the designers’ minds when constructing the dynamic layout, welcoming children and adults via a Unilock-paved walkway and patio. The artistically curated collection of Unilock features include a Beacon Hill Flagstone hardscape with a Copthorne double border, all enclosed by a framing of Brussels Block. A variety of seating options – both around the outdoor kitchen for chatting with the chefs and throughout the pool and dining area – offer guests the chance to comfortably relax and mingle during a gathering.
The modern, well-equipped outdoor kitchen is just one of the highlights of the space, providing these food-focused residents with their ideal preparation area. A custom, stone-stacked pizza oven and bar, state-of-the-art grill, sink and refrigerator provide seamless food prep as guests gather and commune with the chefs while they cook. Whether hosting cocktails or a full dinner, the spacious counters, seating, and cooking area provide endless opportunities for simplified hosting.
When guests are not sitting at the bar or sampling gourmet creations, they can explore the smooth, welcoming patio that encircles the pool and water slide. Lush touches of local foliage blend the masonry with the surrounding yard, providing a calming swimming and sun-lounging area, while also offering ample room for children to safely play and explore. This sun-soaked space includes an outdoor lighting design that provides a smooth transition from day to evening during any type of celebration, and ensures that hosting opportunities are truly limitless in this balanced, backyard retreat.
