Playing off the "old" Washington flavor of the Spring Valley home, D&A Dunlevy Landscapers added azaleas and deep-colored pansies to accent the boxwoods bookending the front entry of this stately Washington, DC residence. The entryway has a stone step walk-up and white columns.
Playful details abound - undulant baluster collars interject a sense of movement and rhythm to the stairs. Victorian, square section columns supporting the lantern transform to octagons with a wink to the Roman Doric Order.
All of the trim, brackets, balusters and columns were custom designed and then fabricated by millwork craftsman.
This completely custom guest cottage was built in only eight months time.
