This custom screened porch with a multi-level deck in Green Hills, TN is heads above any other Nashville area combination outdoor living space. Its graduated design and multiple levels that focus on the vast backyard prove their no place “quite like home”.
Specifically designed to complement the sensibility of this meticulous cottage-style home, this Green Hills custom screened porch is rich with details that allow the family to enjoy views of their lovely backyard.
For example, the crowning touch was the use of black pickets increasing the visibility into the rear yard from within the porch. Our use of black pickets leads the eye “past the rail” and into the backyard — whereas this would not be the case if white pickets were used. Spacious backyards such as this one are to be cherished, as they are hard to find in many areas of Nashville.
As the driveway that leads into the home is on the ground level, a rise of four stairs leads to the picket-enclosed low-maintenance deck. We designed the deck and porch in a way that helps pull the design gradually down to grade, down to the ground level.
We selected AZEK sustainable, Earth-friendly decking in their Coastal color to set the stage for this roomy approach to this blissful Green Hills custom screened porch. This sophisticated Vintage Collection decking material, boasting capped polymer boards, features a subtle wire-brushed, low-gloss finish for a clean look.
Two steps on the attached deck provide entry into this Green Hills custom screened porch. This design decision allows us to achieve more height once inside the porch.
Inside the porch, one can’t help but notice the dramatic pitch of the soaring exposed rafter roof in white, which adds to the wide-open comfort of this oasis.
Considering the wealth of beautiful architectural elements that were incorporated into this space, the family just may be tempted to spend virtually all of their free time there. With spectacular views of the home’s rear landscape via all three exposed screened porch walls, the exterior entry door is one of our Porch Company Sapele doors.
Rich and handsome in their design and finish, our Sapele doors are often our “go-to” screened porch door of choice due to their excellent craftsmanship and durability.
Finishing off the perimeter of the deck space, we used Fortress aluminum railing in black, anchored by 4×4 posts which have been covered with our PorchCo Hermitage Sleeve and Cap Kits , made right here in our shop in Nashville. The beauty of our PVC products is that they will withstand the weather requiring very little maintenance, and they will last for years.
As for other exceptional value-added features, thanks to this multiple-level design, a generously sized storage area is now easily accessible on the far right end under this Green Hills custom screened porch. The large lower-level area allows the family to easily store seasonal items when no longer in use, in a manner that fully protects them from inclement weather elements.
As for other thoughtful design details, the interior stained wooden wall pays homage to the latest trend of the popularity of shiplap. It supports the over-size TV that is at the ready to stream the family’s favorite programs and series. While viewing, the homeowners can comfortably lounge on the expansive L-shaped, all-weather sectional, covered in resilient outdoor fabric. This porch is outfitted for any occasion, including those times when you just want to relax and be a couch potato!
And speaking of detail, notice the arched opening at the front end of this Green Hills custom screened porch. Beautiful in its intricate design style, it also helps increase the height of the porch.
As day melts into evening, our three sconce lights on the posts functionally bring light onto the deck from the porch interior.
As we often say here at The Porch Company, “Sometimes you need a screened porch, sometimes you need an open-air space. And sometimes … you need both.”
