Backyards can be and should be enchanting places. With the right seating arrangements, sunshade, landscaping, and water element, you can transform any space to be magical. No matter the time of year, being outside (glass of wine in hand, of course) with great conversation or even a good book can feel like a mini-vacation from our busy lives. In our latest series, Backyard Bliss, we’ll be showcasing each week some of the most luxurious outdoor spaces around Nashville for your ultimate inspiration for creating your very own backyard oasis. 

Names of Residents:

Trevor and Holly Pagliara

Favorite feature(s) of your space:

From the views of the Middle Tennessee hills and spectacular sunsets seen from our top porch to hanging out by the fire pit in fall, we like everything about our outdoor area.  The hot tub is something we use year-round and our kids love doing the polar plunge into our pool in the winter.  The Astroturf in the back area is also great for playing sports. Lastly, we love sunsets and nothing beats a great glass of wine from our wine room with Whisper Kool technology or a fresh draft beer from our home bar. 

How you most often use the area: 

Realtor Lisa Culp Taylor said the Pagliara home does an incredible job of weaving the interiors with the exteriors.  On the main level, a NanaWall connects the living room to a covered porch with a fireplace, outdoor kitchen, and dining area.  In the lower area, a second den/game room and bar area open to an additional covered porch and the incredible pool, hot tub, fire pit, and Astroturf yard for games.  This outdoor living area is used more often because of great accessibility from multiple rooms and all-weather features.
