Courtyard Charm, Naples
via Southwest Florida MLS
I've always had a thing for courtyards, especially when they are the entrance to a house. This one just happens to be in North Naples, in a beautiful gated community called Mediterra. The bougainvillea is making a huge statement here~ and it's fabulous to have a fountain as well. I recently did some work on one of these villas, and one walked into a courtyard similar to the one shown above, and then into a long narrow foyer, which opened via French doors into ANOTHER courtyard! The second courtyard was designed to be an outdoor living room, complete with fireplace. Stay tuned for more on the charm of courtyards! DF *****
