The owners of this private residence located in Ladue, Mo., wanted to achieve the feel of a French cottage as well as the effect of a new house that looked 100 years old. Leonard Masonry achieved the country French feel through the selection of old-world stone and stucco for the 10,000-square-foot home.
With the actively involved owner, Leonard Masonry completed the exterior veneer, stone fireplaces and site paving. Belden brick, a reddish hand-cast brick and a special stone design that blended brick, stone and blue stone in three different colors. Leonard Masonry also used uniquely shaped brick, natural-color mortar and rake joints to make the house more prominent. The residence further features a brick rowlock around the house, blue-gray windows, a driveway edged in cobblestone and a natural stone patio.
