La Grange Historic Facade Renovation
Located in a charming family-friendly "train station" neighborhood in La Grange, this historic Victorian home was in dire need of TLC . The existing home was lacking a true covered entrance and the exterior was in complete disrepair. With plenty of care and attention to detail, we designed a new covered front entry porch with appropriate period detailing and materials. The coffered ceiling is adorned in stained beadboard with white accents of trim throughout. The home's existing siding was completely removed and replaced with traditional lap siding painted in a vibrant periwinkle blue tone along with white trim and white replacement windows. Similar to the covered porch, all the roof eave overhangs are adorned in stained beadboard giving it a unique yet vintage look. The top gable roof sections have a scallop pattern siding to bring some visual interest to the facade. A new bluestone paver entry walkway was added to connect the front porch steps to the sidewalk seamlessly. This home has been brought back to its former glory and fits in perfectly with the neighborhood.
