Who wouldn't enjoy a big covered porch overlooking an oversized yard in the heart of Arlington! This turn of the century Bungalow was built on a large corner lot. The house was pushed tight to the street corner forming a spacious rear and side yard.
The new full width porch creates a grand shady veranda with commanding views. 3 different step approaches accommodate access from the street, rear yard, and side driveway entries. A new master suite is located in the attic space above the porch. Front and rear dormer additions provide second floor bedrooms and a hall bath. Downstairs, a new open stair frames the large entry hall. The new family room, and enlarged kitchen, has direct access to the porch.
The overall design creates a dynamic relation between house and yard. The addition is carefully considered to respect and enhance the original historic Arts & Crafts Bungalow.Before
