There’s an outdoor kitchen, too.

As if the indoor kitchen weren’t spectacular enough, there’s also an outdoor kitchen and dining space with a gas grill, a built-in refrigerator and a double-sided fireplace. Take a Virtual Tour of the Outdoor Kitchen or Enter the HGTV Dream Home 2014 Giveaway >>

Fido gets his own room.
