Central Axis :: Fabulous Front Entrances...


There's a sense of procession in this Fabulous Front Entrance,
don't you think?
It makes the pathway to the front door incredibly clear.
Everything symmetrical. 
Every element duplicated perfectly, except of course, for the central gable and front door.
Two of those would simply be confusing...


And even when we switch viewing angles,
that delicious symmetry still leads the eye back to the target: the front door. 
And how cute is is the concept of a gatehouse?
As a mini-me of the main house,
 it looks like it may have been the perfect place for stolen midnight kisses in the early 20th century,
when this house was built in an Arts & Crafts style.

Such a romantic thought for a Monday Morning - now it's back to work for me!
