What Houzz contributors are saying:

The two porches lend the otherwise regular house some asymmetry. They also ensure that people visiting the house approach it in a certain manner, walking from the east and then seeing the house frontally from the south and then up the steps.

The house and adjacent porch occupy a 28- by 77-foot rectangle, while the lower porch is 22 by 55 feet, roughly the same size as the enclosed portion of the house.
