Lake Residence transitional-entry

Lake Residence

Carefully nestled among old growth trees and sited to showcase the remarkable views of Lake Keowee at every given opportunity, this South Carolina architectural masterpiece was designed to meet USGBC LEED for Home standards. The great room affords access to the main level terrace and offers a view of the lake through a wall of limestone-cased windows. A towering coursed limestone fireplace, accented by a 163“ high 19th Century iron door from Italy, anchors the sitting area. Between the great room and dining room lies an exceptional 1913 satin ebony Steinway. An antique walnut trestle table surrounded by antique French chairs slip-covered in linen mark the spacious dining that opens into the kitchen.

That's what I thought; I live in Southern IN….limestone country. Does the cut have a specific name? Thanks again for you quick response. Appreciate so much.

This is an antique bench, so it is one of a kind.
