This immaculate home in Melbourne’s Toorak harmoniously blends antique and newly quarried stone in an outdoor setting. While Antique Salmon Granite and Antique Pewter Granite stair treads and paving create a warm welcome at the home’s entrance, they continue in the back garden, providing a welcoming invitation to enjoy the rear terrace, encased by overhanging vines, and providing shade and tranquillity in abundance.


In Australia no garden is complete without a barbecue; this one particularly special. It is framed in a combination of the Antique Granites, well paired with Golden Dune Granite, finished in handcrafted split face and honed textures, and lined with North Ankar Firebrick inside.


A delightful pool setting complements the design, crafted from Heron’s Egg Granite, complete with a pool wall containing custom honed ‘domes’, honed waterline tiles, bush hammered wall caps and a split face veneer. It is a true masterpiece.

Project Principles

Landscape Designer: Eckerlsey Garden Architecture in conjunction with Rhodes Architectural Stone




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.
