Notice the long, wide driveway--freshly power-washed--leading to the three-car garage, providing plenty of room for off-street parking. The gently curving sidewalk and walkway to the front entry have also been power-washed to perfection. From this angle, notice the two mature shade trees gracing the front lawn and framing the entrance.
From the center of the cul-de-sac, we notice the symmetry created by the pair of shade trees balancing the interesting traditional lines of the facade. The covered portico to the right of the entryway arch extends all the way past the garage doors for additional shelter and architectural detail.

Welcome, indeed! Notice the details everywhere you look; for example, here we have a brick-floored entry porch, whereas many lesser homes have poured concrete.
Open the leaded-glass, stained mahogany front door and drink in the elegance!
