Fun fact: The reason Colonial architecture tends to feature windows with many small “lights” (individual panes) is that the British imposed high import taxes on large pieces of glass sent into the Colonies.
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.
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.
Although this entryway is small, it has personality to spare. The side wall covered with a topiary-print, crisp white door and white trim are highlighted by a saturated navy paint. The mix of dark and light tones add depth, tricking the eye to thinking the foyer feel much larger.
The five-bedroom Colonial house sits on over 17 acres of land in Litchfield, Connecticut, far away from any city hubbub. To add to the calm, the property comes with apple trees, a frog pond and mountain views.
