Stone house—the words just conjure up visions of charming English country cottage homes. You all know by now that I am an Anglophile. I love stone cottages, walls, gardens, paths—they make me smile. And this lovely stone house has it all.
The edged drive planted with hydrangea, pachysandra and boxwood leads to the walled, gravel courtyard entry planed with the same varieties of plants. ‘Welcome, please come in for a visit’… should be on a sign above the door. The many roof lines and choice of entrance ways add to its curb appeal.
Charming details such as the small vents, dovecote over the garage, nailhead shutters, covered entries and stone steps stopped me immediately for a closer look. Notice the details and maybe you can find a charming idea that would be perfect for your home!
