This is a residence with presence, scale and grounding. Timbers from a 1917 school were recycled and reworked in the Calrudd millwork shop for the wall cladding. The ceilings are vertical grain Hemlock and the floors are Pennsylvania bluestone. Cherry cabinets, Douglas Fir doors and windows and wall cladding were hand planed to give a hand wrought texture and patina. Architect: John Graham, Interior Design: Jack Burnett.

Residence IX

Carved out of a rock bluff, this house sits some 50 ft above the sea. This was an unusually demanding project as rock faces are exposed in several rooms; the doors and windows built in the Calrudd workshop were finely detailed and the roof framing demanded exceptional precision and finesse. All of the cabinets, including a reproduction crackled finish buffet, were crafted in the Calrudd workshop. Architect: Paul Merrick.

Wow!! What a great way to celebrate a 100 year birthday. This grand mansion now has all the comforts of today's living while keeping its original charm and elegance. Supported by stone foundations and century old timber. Five original fireplaces and hot water radiators add to the feeling of warmth and security that is felt in a home of this stature.Of course an estate like this must have its own coach house to park today's carriages.
