A two-story addition helps balance this home's structure. But what really improves the curb appeal is the addition of a stone facade. The stone enhances the Mission-style look of the home and complements the ceramic tile roof. Details such as the carriage-style garage doors and the iron railing on the balcony help make the transformation work.
Everything on this home's facade brought the eye down-the drooping awnings, the sloping porch, and the angled addition. By replacing these downcast elements with an uplifting entrance complete with over-scaled columns and crowned with decorative railings, the homeowners gave the exterior a stately, Colonial feel. It also illustrates the impact of choosing the right style of entry.
When people drive by your house, you don't want your roof to be the first and only part of your home that they notice. This home's dramatic transformation involved elaborating on the theme started with a single dormer. The new design incorporates a variety of peaks over the home and the garage that break the lines and scale of the roof.
