Spy House of the Week: In Easton Village on Hemmersley Street


Easton Village’s master plan was created during the peak of the New Urbanism movement. One of the New Urbanism principles found in this house is its quality architecture (correct scale and proportion, etc). The master plan also placed the larger houses on the corners to anchor the streetscape.

I am always drawn to houses that have deep porches and this house’s front porch has plenty of space for furniture and circulation. I especially liked the street elevation with its center gable that breaks up the roofline, the proportions of the windows in relation to the surrounding wall space and the hipped porch roof that draws your eye upward to the front gable.

The floor plan is zoned well for family living with its ground floor master and upper floor family room.  Many of the rooms have pitched ceilings and the open floor plan on the ground floor allows plenty of daylight to penetrate into the interior rooms.
