Several different sitting spaces offer shade or sun and different views, they are perfect for meditation, eating, and relaxing outside while reading, watching the birds, or looking out at the Catalina Mountain foothills. Gorgeous sunsets can be seen from the house and at night the dark skies are perfect for stargazing.
