Robertson Lane Alexandria VA

An avid gardener and her bird watcher husband hired Larry Design Studio to connect their Alexandria, VA colonial with the large and lovingly planted lot that backs onto a public park. Their requests included a homey front porch, luxurious master suite and many windows and balconies from which to watch the local wildlife.

The new 1500 square foot, 3-level addition seamlessly blends old and new and maximizes views and connections to the outdoors.

The new front porch transformed the flat-fronted Washington colonial, creating an entirely new street presence with an outdoor room from which the owners can enjoy their neighbors and their gardens.

"We hired Larry because he listened to what we wanted, rather than telling us how it should be. Then, he took our ideas and made them better. Our only regret is that we didn't do this 20 years ago."
- J. Harbeck, Homeowner

12" square columns with trim around top and bottom; we could get away with less trim on your columns, but I like this size for your home.
