An exciting blend of old and new, The Twin Gables combines traditional charm and contemporary ingenuity. The inviting front porch, punctuated with arched trimwork and boxed columns, frames a double door. The transom above the door and the second-floor dormer window repeat the arch motif; interior boxed columns, which separate the foyer and the family room, echo the porch detailing. On either side of the front porch, gables divide the elevation, creating interesting roof hips and valleys similar to those seen on older cottages. These twin gables establish a balance. The study on the first floor could serve as an additional bedroom. Inside, the cased openings and 10-foot ceilings of the family room contribute to the home's spacious feeling.
