The masonry walls are a combination of Ohio sand- stone and Pennsylvania blue- stone. There is cut sandstone trim and the rubble stone walls are a custom selected blend of fieldstone. The sub- stantial corner quoins were reclaimed from an old stone wall formed of large hand- hewn blocks. All of the stone walls batter in slightly from top to bottom.
A large family of cus- tom-built wood windows and doors are oversized to flood the house with light and cre- ate a sense of transparency between the house and the surrounding gardens. This connection to the landscape is strengthened through a number of cut stone and tim- ber porches, in particular, a dramatic cut stone loggia
overlooking the backyard. Each of these porches is paved with intricate patterns of cut sandstone and sliced up discarded roofing slates. The cut stone balustrade sits atop the solid load bear- ing cut stone columns and entablature.
The owners of the home also commissioned a pro- gram of carved stone iconog- raphy to add further beauty and meaning to the project. These remarkable carvings include a starburst fountain- head, a pair of oval windows adorned with oak leaf gar- lands, an oak tree carved into the keystone above the front entrance, and carvings of a boar’s head, an owl, a sheaf of wheat, and a stag’s head for each of the major gables.
