Yep, I am sitting on my porch writing this today. It is 66 degrees, and the birds are singing. Speaking of porches, get a load of these from Architect Magazine. This house was an award winner for the Hufft Project — a Kansas City and New York collaboration where designers showcased their stuff and sent me an e-mail about it.
This Springfield, Mo., house is appropriately called the the Porch House — it started out as a farmhouse that ended up with 10-foot cantilevered canopies. Click here to see more of the story.
Closer to home, you can admire the porches on the the historic home I visited for my column in House to Home on Saturday.
It has an incredible backyard with an enclosed sunporch and multiple screened in porches overlooking a pond. The historic home at 5333 Lake Pleasant Road includes 3,535-square feet. Built in 1867, it’s been in the Shattuk family for seven generations. It is listed at $395,000. Read my article here. For more info, call Mary Smrekar of Coldwell Banker Select at 453-4578.
