Holy! Hawthorne!

Hawthorne House Dartmouth

This eye catching home is located just around the corner from Sullivan’s pond one of the most beautiful spots in Dartmouth.  Black windows contrast with the natural shingles and give a textured minimalist look. 

Hawthorne Entrance

The raincoat yellow front door keeps the house looking happy; not overly serious, which can sometimes happen in contemporary design.  

Originally the home was a wall flower, the architectural details were just an attempt at giving some interest.  With the use of new shingles and the addition of a garage, the place is now the most the most noticeable house on the street, quickly becoming a topic of conversation for Dartmouthians!  The colour blocking approach applied to the garage is an excellent way to turn what is normally an eye sore into an interesting detail and inviting front entrance.  Curb appeal award!!!
