Stone-Ender

The Project

The design takes advantage of the sloping site by incorporating an ‘English basement’ secondary entrance below the main front entry.

This period house is based on a New England colonial prototype known as a ‘stone-ender’ named for the stone gable ends on both sides of the house. Traditionally, the stone ends contained the fireplaces and chimneys. The design takes advantage of the sloping site by incorporating an ‘English basement’ secondary entrance below the main front entry. There is a south facing sunroom and a trellised breezeway leading to a detached garage. Wood clap-board siding, stone, and a cedar shingle roof were chosen as exterior materials to complete the period look.
