The following standards pertain to the exterior color scheme of the residence and
include color changes to the house, deck, gazebo and screened porches:
- Collectively, the color scheme refers to the color of a residence’s siding, trim, entrance and garage doors, shutters and roof. No two adjacent, diagonal, or opposite houses may have the same or similar color schemes. The determination of the similarity of color schemes will be at the discretion of the ARB and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. As a general rule, if any of the following two are the same (siding, trim, door, shutters, roofs and brick facades) on adjacent residences then the exterior schemes may be considered similar.
- Color selections and color schemes must be harmonious with the colors and color schemes used on existing residences within the community. In general, permitted color selections are those that are consistent and compatible with muted, earth tones, and are in the following ranges: beige, buff, cream, tan, gray/green, or gray.
- Blue-tone siding is not permitted.
- Gutters and downspouts must be white or match the siding or trim color.
- The exposed portion of concrete foundations must be painted/stained to match the color of the siding or trim.
- A color change request for a single item, to include a front door, shutters or
garage door(s), the Property Comparison Chart is not required. A color sample and
basic application for color change request is only required.
In addition to the basic application requirements, applications for exterior color changes must include:
- Color samples of the new colors to be used.
- Completion of the “Property Color Comparison Chart” identifying all of the
existing and proposed exterior colors of the applicant’s residence and the exterior
colors used on all adjacent, diagonal, and opposite residences.
