The house below was recently enlarged and re-styled to the extent that the original house is hardly perceptible. Originally a one-story house of modest construction and vernacular styling, the house today serves as a showcase for various effects which can be created with synthetic stucco finishes. The first photo below shows the side of the house prior to its transformation:
A large two-story addition, including a garage, was attached to the original house. While a synthetic stucco finish attempted to unify the two sections, the end result is anything but unified. Competing roof pitches add disharmony as do the various types of windows, doors and frames:
The main facade has three fully arched windows – one of which is styled differently from the others. The entry door frame is segmentally arched, the garage doors have flattened Tudor arches while a secondary doorway features a door frame which has a hybrid segmental/flattened Tudor arch. A small protrusion over the entry – sort of like a pent roof only smaller – serves no purpose other than to crop into both the door and window frames and create an awkward transition to the roofline of the addition.
