AT THE 

 RIVER

 SIDE

This handsome house was made more so with the addition of a porte cochere and the much needed blending of a later addition that was disconnected and awkward.   The high abrupt roof line of the addition was extended down onto the roof of the original house creating an entrance porch.  The front door was repositioned to face up the driveway and a dormer added to the new roof form signaling to visitors "here is the entrance". The project also included a new 3 bay garage with a guest suite above which was designed to look like it very much belong to the house.
