We have purchased a home with an exterior of local stone. It is on a lot with lots of mature trees, so it is a bit shady and just seems to recede into the shade. We would like to update the look to be more appealing from the street and to look more appropriate for a home in town. We will paint the trim, replace all windows and doors, and we are open to replacing everything but the rock (so the front portico, the bay window and siding could all be replaced or reconfigured). Any ideas on how to make this an appealing home?
