With tapered Arts-and-Crafts-style columns and durable decking, the front porch provides the perfect perch to relax and enjoy the country landscape.
The front porch, constructed of pressure-treated lumber topped with durable Trex decking, features a beadboard ceiling with recessed lighting and cultured stone-faced pillars, a post style chosen by online voters.
A nine-light, cross-buck-style door allows natural light to stream into the front entry and dining area of the home. The door style, a People's Choice favorite, was chosen over six-light and four-light, two-paneled door designs.
Landscape beds that flank the walkway are planted with disease-resistant Knockout roses, which add a punch of color, and Kousa dogwood, a disease-resistant varietal that produces white bracts in the spring.
Positioned approximately 10 feet from the front porch staircase, pillars constructed by the Desperate Landscapes crew are faced with ledgestone and capped with bluestone. Copper and frosted-glass light fixtures brighten the walkway during the evening hours.
