Atherton, California Estate by Markay Johnson Construction

Builder: Markay Johnson Construction
visit: www.mjconstruction.com

Project Details:
Located on a beautiful corner lot of just over one acre, this sumptuous home presents Country French styling – with leaded glass windows, half-timber accents, and a steeply pitched roof finished in varying shades of slate. Completed in 2006, the home is magnificently appointed with traditional appeal and classic elegance surrounding a vast center terrace that accommodates indoor/outdoor living so easily. Distressed walnut floors span the main living areas, numerous rooms are accented with a bowed wall of windows, and ceilings are architecturally interesting and unique. There are 4 additional upstairs bedroom suites with the convenience of a second family room, plus a fully equipped guest house with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Equally impressive are the resort-inspired grounds, which include a beautiful pool and spa just beyond the center terrace and all finished in Connecticut bluestone. A sport court, vast stretches of level lawn, and English gardens manicured to perfection complete the setting.

I apologize for not having a more specific answer to your question. The project has wood trim around the windows and doors - The Benjamin Moore color 'Dove White' that was suggested would be for those areas. The stucco is a smooth system finish I do not know the exact installation method, brand or the specifics on the color that was used. I believe on this project we installed a type of smooth finish, not sure if it is a type of stucco or a Dryvit limestone application. Should you be working on a project where design or building services are needed we would be happy to meet with you to do a consultation and we can provide for you more specifics on this project at that time. Best, Markay Johnson Construction

I do not have this information available, a local masonry supply house should be able to assist you in matching the material. Best, Markay Johnson Construction

A color that would closely match what is featured on this project is Dove White by Benjamin Moore. I do not know the exact name for the product used. Best, Markay Johnson Construction

Is this side of the house with the chimney painted brick? It looks fantastic.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sustainability: Slate often outlasts buildings themselves and can be recycled. Today many slate roofs are constructed with reclaimed slate. Besides the recycling benefits, reclaimed slate is often less expensive than new slate. A slate roof's longevity also is an environmental plus, especially because slate rarely adds to construction and demolition debris like conventional roofs do. Plus, slate is a 100 percent natural material.

This is what I want my house to look like once all the renovations and construction is finished. We still have a long way to go, but in the end the house is going to look really good. We've already been working with the general contractor for a while now, so once summer comes we can start the work. http://www.wightmanmechanical.com
