This French-Country style home was built on an existing lot in South Roanoke. The stone window and door surrounds were imported from France, along with the stone pavers, roof tiles, and ornamental stone elements. The Owners are furniture makers, so most of the interior finishes (flooring, doors, stairs, trim) were imported from their shops abroad. An amazing amount of thoughtful detail and impeccable craftsmanship is evident in this unique home. The architecture, design and landscaping work together to create a flowing pattern of forms, as if the house had been added onto over many years.
