I am particularly intrigued by this front addition because most additions to a Victorian house happen in the back. Like the last photo shown in this blog, it is a lot easier to add a back addition because it does not interfere with the front façade and thus it preserves the general Victorian look.
This front addition shown has created a light-filled foyer with windows on three sides. At night, the foyer lights up like a beacon on the block. Underneath the foyer house the new garage. The original garage underneath the bay window on its left has been converted into another room which is screened form the street by the new front steps.
