Monolithic ledge stone panels are set into the stone dust, as part of an award-winning residential landscape design project in Vermont by H. Keith Wagner Partnership. The walkway's arc lends privacy to the main house and a guest house on the estate.
The raised ledge creates an in-ground design for the bathtub. A polished stone ledge surrounds the tub with walnut panels covering the step. The tub is tucked into the large bay window space leaving plenty of open floor space. Natural linen roman shades are motorized for easy operation and enjoyment of the ocean view.
A raised fountain features rotating colored lights, three fountain babblers and a cascading damwell covered in ledge stone. This outdoor space is perfect for relaxing and enjoying time with friends and family.
Replacing the heavy brick mantel with a hand-carved washed wood mantel and ledge stone hearth creates a contemporary, cozy and inviting room. A quatrefoil window was added to create visual interest while bringing in another natural light source. A stylish bar is perfect for entertaining and the bar top repeats the ledge stone from the fireplace mantel creating visual continuity and connectivity. The lucite barstool backs keep it light and allow the eye to move easily throughout the space. A blue sectional and comfy club chairs are perfect for entertaining or snuggling.
Once guests pass through the exterior gates, they enter a large courtyard. This courtyard contains a grill, bar and fire pit. This permanent, custom built fire pit has marble ledges that allow the fixture to double as a coffee table, making this space the perfect place to entertain-no matter the season.
Select stones are pulled forward in the stone accent wall to add texture and provide ledges for candles. The transoms above the doors allow more sunlight into the rooms, which is helpful for illumination and heat in the home located two hours north of Toronto.
This lodge-style living room features a custom stone fireplace complete with a skeleton stone pattern and an extended candle ledge above it. The classic mix of comfortable seating showcases a pair of custom-designed wingback chairs and sofa pillows that are trimmed with real feathers to add to the lodge-style look.
This beautiful room divider serves as a multipurpose structure between the living room and dining room. A stone ledge wraps around to provide table or sitting space on any side. A modern fire pit is positioned between the two rooms for a seamless and warm transition. Then, the cut outs allow for shelf storage as well as serving as the entertainment center by supporting the mounted television.
