Serene and inviting traditional stone house in North Carolina

Traditional Stone House-Pursley Dixon Architecture-01-1 Kindesign

This beautiful traditional stone house was designed by Pursley Dixon Architecture in collaboration with interior designer Phoebe Howard, located in Charlotte, North Carolina. The homeowner’s both wanted something different for their new home; one wishing for an adorable and peaceful cottage, while the other wanted a house built with stone, signifying strength, stature and durability. So the architects relished in the challenge of building a house with stone that would not look like a dreary castle. To soften the look of the home and capture the essence of what the homeowner’s sought, the architects found an abandoned Kentucky distillery. They repurposed it’s limestone walls which were in shades of honey gold, light gray and a pale blue. When you approach the exterior facade of the home, the words casual, breezy and tranquil are what come to mind. The finishing touch on the home was the blue shutters, which helps to pick up on the coolest shade of the limestone, creating a delightful curb appeal. In the interiors, the designer created a more modern floor plan and kept the color scheme light. Traditional paneling, wainscoting and beams were used, but painted in a light hue to keep the home from feeling drab. The living and dining room were combined into an open concept great room that is bright and airy. The furnishings were selected in a serene color palette of creams and pale gray-blues which draws from the cooler hues of the limestone.

We love how the outside seems a little more elegant and stately yet the moment you step inside, you feel very relaxed with the more casual furnishings and materials. A very cozy and welcoming home… and the pool area is fabulous! What do you think, what room in this home is your favorite and why?

A wall of floor to ceiling limestone creates radiates in the family room, creating a beautiful aesthetic that draws the exterior in. An arched window frames the lush greenery from outside and draws in natural light. This space is all about the mix of rough and soft textures creating a comfortable yet causal space.

The pool house is a nice retreat for the homeowners to spend time outdoors. Bi-fold doors opens the entire structure up to the outdoors, creating a seamless indoor-oudoor living experience. The space is very informal and relaxing, where you can kick up your feet and feel right at home.
