Merilane Avenue Residence 2 Pool 3

2011 ASID Award Winning Design

This 10,000 square foot home was built for a family who prized entertaining and wine, and who wanted a home that would serve them for the rest of their lives. Our goal was to build and furnish a European-inspired home that feels like ‘home,’ accommodates parties with over one hundred guests, and suits the homeowners throughout their lives.

We used a variety of stones, millwork, wallpaper, and faux finishes to compliment the large spaces & natural light. We chose furnishings that emphasize clean lines and a traditional style. Throughout the furnishings, we opted for rich finishes & fabrics for a formal appeal. The homes antiqued chandeliers & light-fixtures, along with the repeating hues of red & navy offer a formal tradition.

Of the utmost importance was that we create spaces for the homeowners lifestyle: wine & art collecting, entertaining, fitness room & sauna. We placed fine art at sight-lines & points of interest throughout the home, and we create rooms dedicated to the homeowners other interests.

What material is the exterior of this amazing house? What was used around the windows? - Is this stucco? If so, what is the color/mix? Is that cast stone around the windows? Beautiful!

I was their architect and Topo LLC was their Landscape Company. The selection is actually Olympic Stone, color Walnut. It is a grade 3 Travertine - Peter Eskuche

So there is no issue using travertine as waterline tile? I had planned on using the same travertine (but different size) as I was using on coping but was told that a bit of algae could ruin all of the stone because it is so porous. I picked a ceramic that looks like the stone but would prefer to use the real thing if practical. Would appreciate your opinion.
