A recent drive thru the town of Madoc uncovered a wonderful gem of an old stone house. Note to self: always carry the big camera as this photo was taken with my iphone and doesn't do this home justice.
Wonderful variety and scale in both the stone and wood works, including a quatrefoil pattern in the gable over the door. Love the covered entry and the three bay window as well. The lovely detailed gables echo the Lancet window arches. Generous discounts to prospective clients wanting to replicate this beautiful home.
PS. I am not the only one to admire this house. Notice the cover of this book, Old Ontario Houses, which I just found!
