Architectural Details Make Home Intriguing

architectural-details-make-home-intriguingwOne common complaint with production homes is that they all look alike. There are many ways to make sure every home in a community looks and feels unique. Having a nice mix of models to choose from, ensuring that every street has a variety of home styles, and offering a good selection of external architectural details.

This home, one of the Seaboard models at Cooley Station, is a good example. To start, take a look at the stonework on the entryway. This adds color and texture to the home.  That same stone appears on the lower half of the front of the house, providing a base for the window and almost seeming like outdoor wainscoting.

Curves outline the top of each window and the front entry. The white case work also shows up under the roof line, above the lower stone work and atop the two half-columns at the sidewalk entrance. These splashes of white add contrast as well as charm.

Notice how the shutters bring an old-world feeling to the home. This mood is echoed in the gaslight-style outdoor carriage lamp just to the right of the front window.

One final touch of style comes from the pavers making up the driveway and sidewalk. This finishing touch makes this home worth more than a second look.

If this is the home you would like to claim as yours, we invite you to visit it and the rest of our models at Cooley Station. For more information, visit
