English Arts and Crafts Residence
On a beautiful tree lined street with a south facing slope, this picturesque Arts and Crafts residence was designed for a young family starting out, where a 1950’s anonymous tract house once stood. A steeply pitched roof with gabled dormers, shed dormers, porte cochere, and cupola oozes charm while simultaneously minimizing the appearance of a second floor in the neighborhood of many one story houses. The covered front porch acts as a summertime living room, while within, simple Craftsman and Arts and Crafts detailing provide a relaxed family environment. Lap and shingle siding, bead-boarded ceilings, painted wood columns and corbels, and simple asphalt shingled roofing wrap the exterior in historic materials and details.
