This lot was one of the things that attracted us to this property. It's a wide, corner lot with a side load garage, great big mature trees and just the right amount of yard. We cleaned up the overgrown landscaping a bit, pulled some things out (like 28 railroad ties), and took down the original shutters and original front doors. We wanted to simplify the look really. We added some Karl Forester grasses, a new tree to the front and 28 Colorado moss rock boulders. We painted the house a warm grey, added a new, glass-paned, mahogany front door, and new cedar shutters. The boulders just made all the difference in the world, if you are on the fence about adding boulders to your landscaping, do it! Lastly, we added the double-sided fireplace to the deck so now it can be enjoyed from inside or outside.
