Stone Feature Entrance in Woodend

This Layton Homes built project in the small country community of Woodend makes a real statement. Although it compliments the surrounding environment beautifully, the understated modern design of the home really sets it apart from the surrounding homes in the street. The stone used to create the 4 metre high pillars is Craft Stone Mountain Ledgestone “Cabernet” (CSI-048). A black grout has been used in between the stone to highlight each individual piece of the mountain stone. The “Cabernet” colour has a beautiful mix of reds, light and dark brown shades, and dark greys.
