Fabulous Front Entrance:: A sense of mystery through a long axis….

If the front door is located deeply set beyond the front elevation, a fabulous sense of procession and enticement can be used to invite guests to venture forward, as has been done here, in this beach-side house on the Mornington Peninsula.

By creating an axis and reinforcing the visual concept with a timber pergola and timber decking, the journey to the front door becomes one of intrigue and mystery, almost a game of "walk the plank" as befits the coastal setting.

Instead of a liability, the deeply set entry becomes a fabulous front entrance, don't you think?
