Quick Update

This cute little cottage, built in 1982 is brought up-to-date with the simple addition of color. 

Beautiful color. Great detail on the door. Sweet little bird!

Buzz, Buzz, Buzz

A great way to add age and character to a home built in 1999.

Love the patina and age added with the simple additions of two urns and the unique plaque.

Home of the Week

Painted brick. Metal roofing. Ionic columns.
Built in 1925, this home features a mix of styles that come together to modernize the traditional bones. Additions in 1994 significantly increased the square footage to more than 3500, in addition to a one bedroom/ one bathroom guest house in back.

Beautiful mash up.

Modern Traditional

Built in 1925, this home has undergone extensive additions and renovations. The traditional symmetry allows the sleekness of the stucco finish and portico rooflines to welcome the everyday visitor. The sweet scooped garden gate from HERE belongs to this home.

Please Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Looks like this home could be just down the street from Mr. Rogers, don't you think? Built in 1919 with a cute detached garage with an apartment up above that was added on in 1928. The current owners have taken great care to maintain this beauty with recent paint and renovations.
