D. Front entrances and façade
a. Emphasis is to be put on the front entrance to enhance the look and downplay the garage. A minimum of 10 feet is to be visible of the front of the house on bungalows on the main floor and minimum 8 feet is to be visible of the front of the house on two-storey’s. This can include in combination the entrance and rooms at the front.
b. The front entrance must be visible on the front elevation.
c. Minimizing the number of front steps is also strongly encouraged. Please refer to attached examples regarding front entrances.
d. It’s important to minimize the amount of bare space from the top of the garage door to soffit above. This can be accomplished by: lowering the roof over the garage, adding more detailing like buildouts, taller garage doors, decorative features, or any combination.
