The stylish side entrance to the renovated Eichler home features a paver footpath with drought tolerant ground cover between them and border plantings of ornamental grasses and other attractive low maintenance vegetation.
An inviting porte-cochere trimmed with heavy wood beams connects a side entrance of this French country-style home in Atlanta, Georgia, to a small shed that is set up to serve as a private office or studio. Both structures are clad in whitewashed wood shingles, mimicking the style of the adjacent carriage house garage.
Around the corner from the formal lawn and brick retaining wall is the gated entrance to the side yard (on the right side of the house). New grass, pavers and boxwoods add a welcoming touch to the landscape design.
This brick stoop (rocking chair included) is a side entrance and another classic feature on traditional Southern homes; it opens into the mudroom. Kids, muddy boots, backpacks, tennis rackets...all are welcome.
A side entrance allows for easy access to a study, convenient for the homeowner who often conducts business and meets with clients from home. The large, east-facing window lets sunlight stream into the house.
The side entrance has the utility of a mudroom with its tiled floors, storage console and umbrella rack. A guest house to the east echoes the main residence with a gambrel roof, covered porches and shingled facade.
