Custom Blend – Buff Gray Tailored Blend – Chilton Custom Country Blend – Full Color Castle Rock – Sedona Rustic

The timeless yet modern exterior stone veneer facade features a custom blend of Chilton natural stone products in full or thin stone veneer masonry. This client selected a mix of Buff Gray Tailored Blend, Chilton Custom Country Blend, Full Color Castle Rock, and Chilton Sedona Rustic to fulfill their vision of a luxurious dream home . The arched dormers consistent with an elegant architecture and interior design style allude to characteristics of a contemporary version of French Country house plans. The beauty of this gorgeous home is further enhanced by black window trim in contrast to light colored stucco for a subtle nod to modern farmhouse style as well. The stone masonry installation is a combination of dimensional natural stone, castle stone, and ashlar pieces in a traditional two-to-one pattern with buff colored mortar grout rather than dry stacked stone.

Buff Gray Tailored Blend brings cool sky and shadowy real stone color tones of Chilton stone material to our Dimensional Line. Each piece is sawn to precision heights and fabricated to specific sizes for a contemporary appearance that lends itself to simplified installation. Its natural stone color range includes shades of gray, buffs, blues, creams, and browns. Chilton Custom Country Blend brings sky and earth tones to our Ashlar Line, and Chilton Sedona Rustic brings warm fiery natural stone color tones to our Ashlar Line. Ashlar describes the finest masonry units of dressed and cut stones that are worked until squared. Capable of thin joints between stones, the linear appearance of an ashlar pattern stone installation results in the most traditional natural stone masonry application. Pieces range in heights from 1/2″ to 8″ and lengths from 6″ up to 42″ for full veneer and 6″ up to 24″ for thin stone veneer. Chilton Custom Country Blend’s natural color range includes grays to charcoals, mauves, browns, buffs, oranges, yellows, reds, rusts, purples, lavenders, blues, and creams. Chilton Sedona Rustic’s real stone colors range from reds, rusts, burgundies, and occasional tans for the fiery hues of this Chilton stone blend. Full Color Castle Rock brings the fiery and sky tones of Chilton stone material to our Castle Rock Line. Split to rough squares and rectangles, Full Color Castle stone ranges in heights from 4″ to 12″ and lengths from 6″ up to 42″ for full veneer and 6″ up to 24″ for thin veneer stone. Purples, lavenders, mauves, grays, buffs, blues, creams, and browns add depth to its robust natural stone color range.

The sophisticated blend of natural stone material detailed above creates a contemporary essence of modern French Country elegance complementary to a steeply pitched hip roof, large arched dormer windows, modern farmhouse style rectangular windows, and neutral stucco. Monochromatic neutral tones are in keeping with the subtleties of timeless modern mansion architecture and design.
