The elegant design of this home's exterior relies on a driveway and large entry court laid with cobblestones reclaimed from the streets of Philadelphia and bordered with charcoal granite cobblestones that recall a romantic past.
Ceiling beams made from reclaimed wood and a stone-framed door hint at French chateau style. An island with over-sized turned legs visually grounds the large room while cobblestone framing around the door add a classic cottage-style touch to the space.
A combination of different stones gives this outdoor space a customized and visually interesting look. Stacked New England fieldstone is used throughout the backyard to create seating walls on the patio and retaining walls that terrace the yard. Antique cobblestone divides the bluestone patio to create a separate dining room and conversation area in front of the fireplace, and reclaimed granite is used to make the steps and pillars.
