Want to change exterior if we buy this house


My wife wants to buy this house. I don't particularly care for the outside of the house which looks like the first picture. Would it be possible to make it look more like the 2nd or 3rdpicture.. Obviously within reason. I'm just talking about style not actually making it bigger or changing the floor plan. At the very least what would be a good color to paint the blue? I can't stand it!

How about a real picture of the house your looking at.
Google "Tudor style house pictures"
Bet your going to find at least 95% are all stained brown.
Nice "style" home but I've seen way to many issues with the exposed wood rotting.

The first picture is an actual picture of the house. I am not crazy about the tudor style house and don't like the idea of painting it just brown.

I'd put cedar shingles on the gable (leaving the trim) and paint all of the house trim in a dark hunter green.

So what would you suggested? There not much else you can do with it.
Going to be fun trying to cut all that in near the stucco.

Any dark color is going to fade faster, show dirt, and cause issues with the wood.
Look at any wooden door company's suggestions on painting the door, all say do not paint a dark color.

I hate the tudor look, batten and board and all that. I'd redo that wall above the garage in hardie horizontal siding like on the right side or shingles as #4 said. After that you can go for the peachy trim color as in house #2.
