The granite on the exterior of the house has a split-faced finish that allows the home to have a textured when viewed from the outside.

Inside the main master ensuite bathroom, smooth granite walls create a natural appearance, while the basin and countertop have been engineered from a solid block of stone, creating a seamless finish.

Opposite the vanity is a freestanding bathtub that’s also been carved from a single granite block. Black accents like the faucet and towel ladder tie in with the window frames and create a contrast to the grey granite stone.
