This majestic, stone, colonial mountain home was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's concept of 'Organic Architecture' featuring PURE-ORGANIC building materials from the earth: STONE and WOOD...the essence of Stonewood Lodge! Hand built from 250 tons of split and shaped natural, native stone. Finished in a 'Craftsman Style' with gorgeous, indigenous PENNSYLVANIA HARDWOODS HARVESTED FROM THE PROPERTY ITSELF...the metaphor of permanence resonates in an authentic 'Built by Owner' style reminiscent of an era gone by.
The home's interior living space was designed to bring elements of Nature indoors. Wild Black Cherry, White Sugar Maple and Red Oak were used throughout the Lodge to create custom cabinetry, unique furniture and finish every ceiling and wall...including bathrooms, mudrooms, every closet and even the garage! Not one drop of stain was used to alter the 'real' color and grain of the wood in order to reveal its beautifully deep and rich natural patina! The total effect enhances visual pleasure and aesthetics...AS IF VIEWING A WORK OF ART BY MOTHER NATURE!
