A general rule of thumb for the front door is for the fixture to be 1/3 the height of the door if there is only one and 1/4 the height of the door if there are two (one on each side of the door).
So I would suggest mid 20" range.

The doors on this side of the house are the existing ones before the renovation. They only received a new paint job. Sorry I can't help you.

Hello,
I am sorry, our homes are custom designs created to specifically integrate our client's programmatic requirement with their particular site. Our policy has been to not release drawings to protect both the clients privacy and our hard work.
Hope that helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Charming old homes come with their own host of maintenance issues, but they make up for it in appeal. This house had a lot of problems typical of an older home, including water in the basement; Smith and her client went to great lengths to preserve the antique home. "The client came to me to help her renovate the kitchen and gain more functional space, like laundry," Smith says. "The project snowballed from there."Roof: "Englert Kynar Ultra-Cool Low Gloss" metal roof in a matte black finish.
Element: Shutters and window boxes. The overall simplicity of the structures makes them ripe for exterior enhancements like operable shutters and window boxes. How to make it your own: Shutters and window boxes cheer up the facade of any home, regardless of its style. Both are simple improvements to curb appeal.
