D E S I G N B U I L D 341 ABOVE: With a great appreciation for the design process, the homeowners were willing to revisit elements again and again until every possibility was exhausted and the design was perfect. In the master bedroom, a glass wall originally flanked the fireplace to separate the sitting room, but simplicity prompted a removal of the wall and the mantel. The result is an elegant, peaceful sanctuary. FACING PAGE TOP & BOTTOM: While the exterior follows the original stone's dry stack technique with cracks and missing pieces, the inside is driven by the family's simple, contemporary tastes. Parged with mortar to add softness, the interior stone reflects the beautiful texture and exquisite materials of the furniture, fabrics, and art. Both the interior and exterior required careful selection of highly skilled craftspeople who could view a piece of material and instinctively find the beauty in its flaws. Through sensitivity to history and understanding of the materials, every piece of the home blends well together. Photographs by Audrey Hall "Perfection is elusive. The joy is in the pursuit." –Paul Bertelli
