The area between the buildings forms a natural courtyard, providing another great outdoor living space, with new pavers and landscaping. The pavers continue around the southwest of the home, leading to a new sunset pergola, maximizing the potential and beauty of the outdoor space. Updated landscaping and the irrigation system give the yard a well-cared for, healthy and verdant look.
