From bland to beautiful - street appeal needed!

Our 1990s house is small inside (though lovely) and we live in a regional area where value is a bit stagnant so we don't want to overcapitalise, but I'd like it to be more welcoming for us and to increase its value with better street appeal. The front faces East. Here are the challenges as I see them:
1. Just bland.
2. The entry. The patio juts out only slightly which is worse than not at all. It breaks the line of the house but doesn't look intentional.
3. The budget. We can do soft work ourselves and minor building, but once any work tips into council approval etc we start to use up funds we don't have. Prior to this, we got a quote on reconfiguring the roofline at the front and it was prohibitive.
We like contemporary styling for house and garden, not into cottage gardens.
Very open to adding some built landscaping such as screens, etc.
Advice on house and landscaping would be appreciated greatly!
