The owners of a rambler in McLean hired Anthony Wilder Design Build to renovate portions of its interiors while also adding curb appeal to the mundane front façade of the house.
|The front was flat and featureless and the single roofline was boring.||A den extends from the front. The roofline is varied by a square window in an A-frame structure. A gable on the other side of the entry adds interest.|
|The front door was nondescript, offering only a narrow overhang that provided no shelter from the weather.||There is space for a covered entryway and a bench. A decorative arch is a focal point.|
|The door was unappealing, with an ugly screen door in front of it.||The screen door is gone and the front door is painted dark, with new hardware.|
|A retaining wall and large, unwieldy shrubs hid the house.||New landscaping features a winding walkway that draws the eye to the front door.|
