Perched over Silicon Valley, this stunning residence combines both formal dimensional stone in the 18th and 19th century tradition with more rustic site walls and outbuildings. The newly quarried Silk Road Sandstone and Amande Limestone neatly blend to form a family of stone with new Golden Dune Granite and Antique Salmon Granite.


Silk Road Sandstone with a sand-rubbed finish is the perfect choice for the wrought stone elements. The handcrafted architectural work is extremely technical, created using stereotomy templating, a technique perfected by French craftsmen in the early Renaissance.


The outbuildings and site walls are created with heavily textured Amande Limestone in a blend of pineapple and split faced hand textures – the rougher surface catching the shadow and light. Antique Salmon Granite pavers complete the formal terraces with timeless elegance.

Project Principals




As you'd expect in a natural product, stone does vary in colour and texture, even in the same quarry block. That's what makes stone so unique.
We recommend using the images on our website to initially chose the colour, texture and look you prefer, then talk to us to see our current samples. Mockups are also a great option before making your final decision. We strive to provide a product of the highest quality, but please remember it's stone, not paint. The colour and texture of the next layer in the quarry was defined millions of years ago.
