Nestled on a wooded lot with a dense canopy of large trees, this new stone and slate French Renaissance Revival house is both elegant and restrained. The dark slate roof, limestone cornice and quoins, random ashlar stone walls and stained wood doors are all characteristic of the French style. The simplicity of design not only compliments the site, but also does an excellent job being contextually compatible with other surrounding neighborhoods, Villa Turicum and Walden.
