Modern Exterior & Landscape Makeover in Downingtown
Winner DelCY Award
2012 Contractor of the Year
Exterior Under $100K
This home was a typical Toll Brothers contemporary from the early ‘90’s. The exterior had reached the end of its life, with decayed cedar siding and a deteriorated roof. Greg & Tamara decided to use this opportunity to radically remake their home - to update its modern appeal and set it apart from any other suburban tract house. Spring Creek Design created a new deck, new siding design, entryways and sculptural landscaping for the home.
- Replace siding and give the home a bold, modern look.
- Update the home’s landscaping with a spare modernism.
- Add a new deck with an outdoor kitchen.
- Bold new exterior features stucco, fiber-cement panels and siding. Three different colors are used to clearly define the shapes of the home.
- Cantilevered concrete entryways features “floating” concrete slab landings.
- Azek deck with tempered glass railings.
- Custom wine-bottle light fixtures adorn the outdoor kitchen.
- Massive planting boxes of Cor-Ten steel form the basis of a low-maintenance, dramatic landscape.
- Custom-fabricated square gutters and downspouts compliment the linearity of the home’s design.
