Old English Stone Veneer
Stone wall veneer is a beautiful addition to any property. Mellow tones of plum, brown and tan are reminiscent of a picturesque village in the Cotswolds … but this uniquely beautiful Medina sandstone was actually quarried here in America. It was a popular choice for buildings and towns in western New York and eastern Ohio dating back to the early 1800s. These stone building materials are a wonderfully unique choice for a statement sandstone veneer wall.
