veranda

veranda, verandah. Light external open gallery, or covered way, with a sloping or lean-to roof carried by slender (usually metal) columns or posts, attached to a building, often in front of the windows of the principal rooms, affording shelter from the sun as well as a pleasant external seating area with access from French windows. Sometimes it can be very decorative, with trellis-work and plants, and may extend all round a house, forming a skirt-roof. It was a feature that became popular from the early C19.
