The Nashville Symphony Show House seamlessly bridges the gap between outdoor and indoor when you step through the Pella French Patio Doors onto the covered porch designed by Mark Simmons Interiors.

Entertain rain or shine with the state-of-the-art summer kitchen by Embers. The ALX2 grill can handle any party, large or small with an integrated rotisserie system and 770 square inches of actual grilling area. Note the mitered corners over the outdoor kitchen, a craftsman detail by Castle Homes.
