The exterior walls are stucco and wood, however, we do not have the paint colors specified in our files. We hope this helps!

They look to be mounted at about 6' high, the front doors are about 9' tall.

The exterior wall sconces were a simple brown colored cylinder. Progressive, Hinckly and several others make a version.

The exterior lighting would have been selected by the lighting designer or homeowner. We do not have this information in our files currently.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Getting it Wright: Today's Prairie Style
This new Prairie style home in California features hip roofs, casement windows tight to the underside of the roof overhang and trim to emphasize the horizontal. The angled, battered walls tie this home to the landscape in true Prairie fashion.
Prairie Style. Traditionally the Prairie Style house has a low pitched hip roof with large overhang, horizontal lines, clerestory windows and central fireplace. Updates: The form and shape of this example fits with the Prairie Style, but uses modern materials such as stucco and linear stonework. The color scheme is not common for Prairie Style but is still earthy.

This front is too heavy and fortress like. Like the use of higher windows to create privacy where needed but want a look that is lighter. Weight may be due to angled facade
