We love everything about this window-filled corner, not to mention the view. The picture window maximizes the view, while the double-hungs give ventilation. We also love the low built-in book cases that have function as window seats.
If you don't want to work on making your entire yard a private paradise, take one corner and transform it into a secluded getaway.Here, for example, two pines make a hammock feel tucked away. Add post for a hammock!
