Some houses are exemplars of curb appeal, designed to elicit a gasp of admiration from those who drive by.
It isnâ€™t long before the house comes into sight, its square-columned gallery and high-hat roofline crowning its small contoured peninsula like an ancien rÃ©gime pavilion.
â€¦neoclassical precedents aside, the Dunbar house is gently but resolutely modern â€¦ simple and sleek, it broadcasts just enough vernacular grace notes to indicate that although the ownerâ€™s and architectâ€™s tastes are twenty first century in tone, their reference points are happily down home.
