Finishing Touches Add Old-World Elegance
Building multiple tiers with a tumbled paver floor and chiseled stone walls provided a combination that stood well next to the soaring elevation of the house and added an old-world elegance.
Repeating style elements from the patio, BSC/Kramer Group installed stately brick wing walls on each side of the front stoop then laminated the existing concrete steps with pavers to create an elegant yet warm area to greet visitors. At the bottom step an ample paver walk was constructed that also joins up with a ribbon at the driveway.
Curved retaining walls soften the hard lines of the house and create planting areas for flowers and shrubs. By stair-stepping the planting beds down the sloping lawn, the front entrance, walkways and beds maintain stately elegance while harmonizing with the surrounding area.
