This entry stands out with ironwork railings that delineate the property from the sidewalk. The ironwork is softened with traditional plants such as boxwood borders and fragrant evergreen plants like Rosemary, which gives a welcoming feeling and a sense of arrival to the front entry of the home. The front door is treated with Baroque seeded glass, which serves two purposes- to let light in and to create more of a sense of privacy than a clear glass would.
A glass wall lines the exterior side of this modern staircase keeping the space feeling open. Opposite the glass wall a simple white handrail runs parallel with the wood-topped steps. The white walls and glass keep the space bright.
A front courtyard doubles as an opportunity to enhance curb appeal and define the entry sequence as a unique experience. A concrete walkway steps up from the driveway and meets in the front yard to move toward the front door. Uncovered windows allow the warm indoor lighting to be visible outside connecting the interior and exterior.
Concrete strips separated by stripes of small natural rock create a textured look to the wrap around patio bordering this modern home. The design descends featuring patio areas after each set of steps. A small circular table and warm wood chairs create an outdoor dining space.
Red brick steps provide contrast to the bright white home exterior. The porch features a wood front door with a large window, and a blue-painted porch ceiling. Blue porch ceilings are a Southern tradition that supposedly help keep bugs away.
Nestled amongst evergreen trees and lush green shrubs, this cream colored stucco home features a flagstone walkway and steps and a rounded square porch entrance. A new wood front door was installed to match the existing style of the home.
Rugged stone steps lead to a personal botanical garden overlooking the mountains. The rustic exterior of the cottage is marked by green trim, wood shingles and a tin roof, and the hardy cottage garden is surrounded by a stone retaining wall.
Cantilevered steps give guests the sense that they're floating towards the home's main entrance. Though the structure itself is clearly modern in style, the wood paneling along the exterior and garage helps the home complement its natural environment.
A new entry for this renovated 12,000-square foot main house showcases the home's rustic appeal and welcomes visitors into a retreat unlike any other. The stone exterior and steps beautifully accent the grand wooden post and beam entrance.
This Pacific estate features a textured stone exterior giving it a castle-like feel. Layered roof levels peak over arched window frames. An arched front door shape echoes the window shape and ads a warm wood detail to the cool tones of the exterior look. Matching stone steps lead from the home to the sidewalk.
Each section of this patio offers a new texture to the design. Glass doors open from the home open on to a smooth, stained wood deck with steps descending to the yard. Long, rectangular stepping stones are separated by uniform rows grass and create the feel of movement from the deck to the outdoor dining patio. Light neutral stone flooring compliments the neutral tone of the home exterior while a blue table umbrella adds a bold pop of color.
