Enchanting Proche Dreux Colonial With Striped Brick, Large Open Yard and Tranquil Pond
A cleanly landscaped yard with short shrubs allow this gorgeous French Colonial to shine against the natural background. Tall brick chimneys extend into the trees while a unique vertical pattern decorates the home exterior. A gravel walkway travels from the home to the serene backyard pond.
While the front yard may be small, this home relies on colorful flowering plants to provide a lively outdoor look. Several shrubs and bushes line either side of the entrance, while similar flowers cascade from window boxes and perfectly complement the rust orange shutters.
This historic colonial home was spruced up with details that are respectful to the home's heritage while still giving it an updated quality. Inside, the same story is told through a classic, yet modern design that includes an open concept first floor as well as plenty of natural light and functional, stylish spaces.
Gorgeously Unique Proche Dreux Colonial With Decorative Wrought Iron Gate
The gorgeous and unique pattern on this Colonial home in France is an intriguing twist on traditional brick. An ornamental wrought iron gate is the perfect entrance detail decorating the natural gravel driveway and short, weathered-brick walls lining the sidewalk.
The symmetrical entrance and rigidity of a traditional colonial are softened by the shingle style and supplemented by stonework. An angled garage wing responds to the natural contours of a plateau on which the house sits, addressing the natural landscape as well as clients' needs.
Natural materials in earth-tone colors were used to make this house feel at home. Though it is only two-stories on the front facade, the dormers and chimney pots help to elevate an otherwise horizontal structure. The breezeway to the left of the garage allows guests to reach the rear-yard pool without going through the house.
Though the exterior details are modest, more emphasis was placed on the entry porch with a decorative balustrade and fluted columns, with the curved roof above.
Two wings with stone facing on either side of the front door ground the house while an angled garage wing responds to the natural contours of the landscape. Daniel Contelmo Architects also wanted to nestle the house at the proper grade allowing for ingress at the top of the slope, egress at the bottom, while keeping the mature tree adjacent to the entry.
Colonial Home With Covered Front Porch Supported by White Beams With Spacious Grass Yard
A soft siding color is contrasted with black shutters and white support columns. The brick from the walkway continues onto the covered porch with outdoor sitting space. The healthy grass yard gives off a natural, colorful glow.
