I always prefer, given the option, to have garages on the side of the house (but its more expensive to build which is why you tend to not find them like that in developments or other newer homes). But really, its not about the front of the house, but the inside since that is where you live your life. The outside is a bonus if you love it. And, to some degree, its always changeable.

I kind of love it. I really dislike the appearance of typical siding that you see on most neighborhood homes. This house looks a little unique without being so far out of the norm.

I, too, would prefer it if it was popped into the woods but I’m used to having a garage in front so that doesn’t bother me.

Yes. I would buy that house, judging by just the outside. It looks modern to me. Definitely not “cookie cutter”.

It looks unfinished but I like it. I’d probably paint it or something though.

The garage wouldn’t keep me from buying it if the location and price were right, it just isn’t my favorite thing. But hey, no house is perfect!

Very nice, although not quite my style. I do think it looks great though. I think the inside counts more than this outside roadside pic tbh.

Good fences make good neighbours. 1/2 acre is enough for anybody. Just fence along the sides and back and you will have all the privacy you need.

Paint out the garage door as pp’s have mentioned so it is not the focal point, and paint the front door a color that says “welcome”.

It looks unfinished to me. I am not very excited about it. I don’t hate it, but don’t love it

I like it, I’m just not a fan of the garage door taking up that much of the front view of the house.  It wouldn’t be a deal breaker for me though.

I think it is lovely. One thing I get a kick out of with American subdivisions is nobody seems to ever have fences. Backyard fences are standard practice around here.

i think it’s nice.  this style with the dominant garage has become very popular in the new neighbourhoods where i am from.

Do you have any other pictures of it? My husband is a mason and does historical restoration…he swears it doesn’t look like real brick, but is a material called drivet. Is it half brick or solid? He also thought it was stucco because of the corner pieces.

@Mrs_Amanda:  If that’s the only thing holding you back I would go for it. Like PP said, you live your life inside the house (and sometimes in the backyard). But to me it looks totally normaly, like I said 99% of houses here have the garage exactly like that one.
