Colonial Home Boasts Screened Porch With Stone Fireplace
A 450-sqaure-foot screened porch was added to this 1980s home to create space for indoor-outdoor living. The porch features large sliding doors that connect it to the family room and a gorgeous stone fireplace for chilly nights.
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.
Extra Storage and Pops of Color in Spanish Colonial Courtyard
To help give the homeowners both additional seating and storage, designers chose a rustic, Spanish style bench with storage underneath to meet these two goals. Then, they added turquoise accents above the piece to extra color and a touch of Spanish Colonial flair.
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.

Charming details were added to the exterior of this 1980s colonial home, creating major curb appeal. A curved driveway, which wraps around the front and leads to a three-car garage on the side of the house, completes the classic look.
