Although I marveled at the interiors of this home, what really stood out to me was the exterior, as this is on my mind these days. Larkins to ask about the exterior of his home, which looks like it is an older house even though it is newly built (a ‘new old house). Larkins told me that he used old brick on the exterior of his new house, then had it painted with latex paint (not too flat, not too glossy). Painting brick is a great way to get the monolithic appearance of stucco, or achieve a certain uniform look as an alternative to stucco.

Perhaps more accurately, a home that combines some aspects of the Georgian that I love, but which is inspired by French architecture but does not slavishly emulate it.

In some ways, what I like seems to combine aspects of both French design with perhaps a little English influence. However, what struck me even more was Stefan’s description: the house (designed by Paul Cret, a French architect), was built between a Louis XV house and a Georgian style house.

He also noted that he has used it on homes where the clients want the monolithic look and appearance of stucco, but prefer to use brick.).

You can see the forms of the bricks quite clearly, but there seems to be something smooth over the bricks.

The lovely landscape architecture certainly contributes to this effect - landscape architect was Alec Michaelides from Land Plus.
