In the hustle and bustle of modern life, we often forget to stop and smell the roses — or share some interpersonal time with our neighbors. The way many newer homes are constructed also plays a role.
For example, attached garages make it convenient for homeowners to enter and exit through a back door rather than the front entry. The result is that sometimes neighbors may not see each other for weeks.
But these homes presented by Dave Perry-Miller & Associates are quite the exception. Here are several beautiful homes with porches that provide a focal point for relaxing, front lawn conversations and gatherings.
A cobblestone front path leads to 5504 Willis Ave., which features a wraparound porch ideal for entertaining. Located in the M Streets, this prairie-style home also features a large fenced back yard with oversized deck.
The historic charm of 4707 Munger Ave. is demonstrated by its wraparound front porch and porte-cochère. The home features a grand formal living room, second living area with fireplace, updated kitchen, breakfast room and more. The third-floor attic can be finished for additional living space. The large lot is perfect for entertaining and gardening.
8438 San Fernando Way is located in Forest Hills. The front porch has a vintage design with wrought-iron railing and is spacious enough for plenty of seating. The home sits on a mature treed lot and is close to White Rock Lake and Arboretum Village.
The prairie-style home at 5727 Belmont Ave. has a front porch large enough for a swing and seating, plus room to congregate. The five-bedroom home features an open floor plan and a second living/game room. There’s a studio with full bath over the garage, two covered back patios and a large backyard.
Located in Kessler Park, 1106 N. Clinton Ave. is an updated Tudor. The home is tailor-made for entertaining, thanks to an expansive front porch and backyard pergola. This home has three bedrooms and expansive kitchen, and the space on the first floor could be converted into a fourth bedroom.
