As I have said time and time again, a good yard will give you more than one option as far as what you can get out of it is concerned. This yard, for example gives you the opportunity to sit out in the mooring and have some coffee by yourself, yet at the same time you could have a bunch of friends over for a dinner party. The courtyard layout is lovely, with a variety of little trees and bushes. The surrounding lawn is also very well kept and manicured, with some nice trees around the fence line. I really like the stonework on the patio itself.
