A unifying element like this roof that ties the two pieces of the house together into one can help. Get an architect involved to replicate this look. Notice they didn't replace all of the roof, just matched the shingles with new metal roofing. It will be very much at home in the DC area.

All one color will decrease the split look...matching the siding closer to the brick color is the easiest .. shortest way... toward that goal...unless you want to paint the brick... then any color will work

I appreciate the input. I was thinking along the lines of adding some bulkier stucco window trim, painted in a contrasting color. Seems like that would be architecturally more correct than shutters for the style of house? I would also like to change the attack vent at the top with a window…how would that look?

I would try painting the existing trim in a contrasting color before adding more window trim but it's definitely a better option than shutters. Replacing the attic vent with a window might cause issues with proper air ventilation.

Because you put the hvac in the attic, is it necessary to insulate?

Not required, but it just makes sense to do this. If you don't insulate at the rafters and you have HVAC equipment in the attic, In the summer your unit is baking at 155 deg while it tries to make cool dehumidified air. Proper insulation of the rafters and side attic walls will save big on energy usage, extend the life of the unit as well as make your home much more comfortable in the summer and winter.... I talk about it in this video (question 16) http://wjmarchitect.com/askwjm.htm

WJM Architect commented on a discussion: Love the simplicity of the newell. Is it custom?

Not custom, came right from the standard catalog. Since it was a short run, I felt simplicity was the way to go. Also the contrast with the balusters makes the newel visually feel as if it grows from the stair treads
