Arden Is Bringing Back the Front Porch

Did you know that the majority of homes at Arden have a front porch? And it’s not just a fashion statement. While front porches certainly do some heavy lifting when it comes to curb appeal, at Arden, a new home community located in Palm Beach County, it’s a way of life. Front porches add a social aspect to the community, creating a space where residents can chat and interact with their neighbors without ever leaving home. But there are many different benefits to having a front porch, and these benefits are taken even further when you live in a community like Arden.

Provides More Living Space

Having a front porch – and even a back porch – can add ample square footage to your home. Add some comfy chairs, throw pillows or even a hammock and you have a relaxing space to read, take a much-deserved nap or just sip a cool drink and enjoy nature. You could even add a table and chairs to dine alfresco or work from home. Afterall, spending time outside, in the fresh air, has proven to have many health benefits – including relieving stress and creating an overall sense of wellbeing.

Builds Community

The front porch offers a unique benefit by giving you private space that is still open to the neighborhood. It allows you to relax in a space where you are comfortable, without missing an opportunity to connect with your nearby neighbors. You can even stay social while maintaining a safe distance during the COVID-19 pandemic – you can chat as friends walk by, or even plan to share a glass of wine from porch to porch, catching up with neighbors. Building these connections and friendships is part of living at Arden, and porches make it that much easier.

Offers Flexible, Functional Living

Do you have a green thumb? Work from home? Maybe your dog is your fur baby and has too many toys. Porches provide you with more space for the things you love, no matter what that is. You can set up plant shelves in a sunny corner, or hang up some pots of your favorite ivy and have more space to grow. Turn the porch into your outdoor office with a table and chairs – you can even make the table a height so you can stand and work, instead of sitting all day. Add some baskets or hooks near the door to store dog toys, leashes, dripping raincoats or dirty shoes. Front porches give you more space to live life a little less cluttered.
