Gutters down the front of the house?

We have added a second story on our split level home. It was built with 3 half dormer windows facing the front of the house. The problem is that we have been told that we have to install gutters from the roof edges between the dormers and run them down the front of the house on either side of the front door. Is this really necessary? Does anyone know of a better way?

I know of no better way. Yes, this happens alot. This is usually the result of poor planning. It seems like everyone forgets the roof when remodeling. I know it does not look very nice, but then, thats how it is. The only rememedy would be if you could install some sort of fascia board all along the front of your house. Then that might not look to good either.
