AN EAST HAMPTON BACKYARD
Their home is incredible, don’t even get me started on that. We only have time to talk about the backyard today. Originally, Anne’s backyard was an empty lot with a giant tree in the middle. After a year or two of living in the house and thinking it over, they decided to remove the tree and create a more functional backyard for their family (they have two active happy kids with who have lots of active happy kid friends).
After the tree was removed and the pool was put, in the backyard was unrecognizable. It’s as overnight their backyard turned into a home from a magazine spread. Besides the pool, they also added a pool house, terrace, garden, assorted seating, potted plants, and magnificent pool umbrellas.
The pool is just stunning. Photos don’t even do it justice! I enjoyed getting to wander their backyard and learn more about the process of how they did it. It was so great to spend the weekend with Anne and catch up. I will be dreaming about her backyard for weeks! It is so serene and peaceful – yet perfect for entertaining. They sent me some photos recently of a dinner party they were having on the lawn and it looked like a resort.

I don’t really have a backyard at my house. I have a courtyard. If I had a backyard, I would want it to look exactly like Anne and John’s. It is dreamy!
