“I like to sit on the porch and…”
How would you finish that sentence?
Popping up in both renovations and new construction, it seems to be all about the new old-fashioned porch. The front porch is popular with homeowners who want to keep up with the neighborhood or create a welcoming entry for guests. Porches are larger these days, often spanning the length of the front of the house, but even a modest-sized front porch enhances the sense of entry into the house. Wraparound porches with screened-in portions are popular in rural settings and on farmhouse-style homes. A simple portico porch can protect guests while they wait at the front door and provide dimension to a flat-faced house.
Kelly Real Estate has recently sold and is currently offering several properties that boast a delightful front porch. This photo shows the large, welcoming front porch of 325 Fairway Circle in Gilbertsville.
