what kind of stone, and who did the masonry work? it's really lovely.
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
this architect buys most all of his building materials and architectural elements in europe. they are one of a kind and proprietary to his projects. he also sells some of these materials to the trade only at his store called "Antiquities" in Scottsdale, AZ

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Mediterranean Garden Style
Decide on the design elements. This house is actually in Phoenix, but you'd think you were on a Tuscan patio with this amazing stonework. Both the water feature and urn are strong enough elements to not be overpowered by the surrounding walls, and their relative simplicity makes them stand out even more.
Complement stone facades. Antique and reclaimed building materials were used throughout this Mediterranean-style home in Arizona. The urn's patina fits right in with the antique weathered palette.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Tuscan
Style Secret: Outdoor SpacesHaving an al fresco spot to take the sun, sip a cappuccino or tend a pot of basil is an essential part of the Tuscan approach to living. If you're building a Tuscan-style home from scratch, don't neglect to include such a space in the plans. If you're retrofitting, though, remember that it doesn't have to be a lengthy loggia or magnificent portico — even a small patio out back, cloaked in stone or stucco and laden with pottery urns and creeping vines, creates the same effect.Bella Tuscany: Water, usually in the form of a small fountain, makes a natural partner for Tuscan style. The trough along the main stone wall of this courtyard serves a similar purpose and forms a focal point amid the richly textured surfaces.
Martine Resnick added this to 8 European-Style Patios That Invite and Charm
Spanish finca. Tucked through an archway, this rustic warm stone farmhouse feels every inch the Spanish finca. The large stone animal trough makes a great water feature. To create your own little patch of Spain, grow pots (or a trough) of desertworthy succulents. If you don't have lovely sand-colored stone walls, paint a surrounding wall in a rich mustard yellow or a warm terra-cotta red. Use iron or wood garden furniture with olive green cushions. If you have space, add an additional comfortable chair or two with an ottoman so you can put your feet up and relax. Keep a wicker basket nearby with a handy supply of magazines to read and, of course, a side table with a nice jug of chilled sangria.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Bring a Taste of Italy Home With 12 Design Touches
8. Exterior stone. Common in the Italian countryside, stone exteriors exemplify rustic, casual living. I just adore this architectural style. The imperfect, uneven textures suit my carefree side.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to How to Make Your Stone House Feel at Home in the Landscape
Add planters and pottery. Terra-cotta and ceramic pots come in a variety of colors and textures, and you can certainly find one to complement the stone on your home. Notice how this piece of pottery pulls the orange and gray tones from the stone as well as repeats the texture of the home’s exterior.
