Front Entry

Design details, such as color and trim, really do matter. Here, painted brick softens the exterior and relates back to its 1930s appeal. Tuscan columns combine with stately dormers to create a striking entryway and form a pleasing first impression.

Sunroom

Elegant pilasters frame three pairs of casement windows topped with elliptical transoms to retain a porch feel while creating a practical sunroom inside.

Portico

Most inviting, the front portico consists of dentil block, bed molding, and a curved frieze. These authentic details enhance the traditional flavor of the home’s exterior.

Entry Details

Curved handrails at the entry lead to the stately front door. The 100-year-old fanlight transom, found in a salvage shop, further embellishes the doorway.

Detached Garage

The two-car detached garage contains space on the second floor for a studio or guest suite. Constructed of wood and lattice, this graceful exterior stairway and deck connect the garage to the upper-level living area.
