Flagstones in various sizes and shapes creates an authentic, English countryside-esque exterior on a contemporary style home. Black paned windows line up symmetrically across the back of the house to let in afternoon light.
This elegant home, set on a large tract of land in Austin's hill country, was designed to be highly energy efficient. Overhangs, awnings and deep covered patios keep direct sunlight from entering into—and overheating—the house.
Over 200 varieties of trees, shrubs and ground covers create an ever-changing palette of garden delight. Bringing the perennials and plant materials closer to the New Hampshire residence with a stone exterior embraces the natural beauty of the property.
Indiana limestone, a slate roof, an antique door and a pendant lantern set the tone for this LEED-certified English Country manor home on Lake Keowee. The home's steep roof lines are characteristic of its Old World design style.
Different levels of roof cantilever out and over this stately stone patio, creating pockets of shade and comfortable gathering spots. The layering of the stone wall exterior echoes that of the roof and the patio steps.
