This beautiful Cape Cod-style home has an aesthetically appealing design that is complemented with a unique blend of pavers on the driveway and at the front entrance.
Unilock Copthorne pavers in a three-color blend are laid in a herringbone pattern along the driveway. Copthorne pavers are a perfect choice for this project as they come manufactured with proprietary Reala technology, giving these pavers the appearance of a historic brick paver you might find on an old European street. In addition, Ultima concrete ensures these pavers maintain their original color and finish for years after installation.
While the homeowners wanted to carry this look through to their front entrance, the distance between the driveway and the front door presented a design challenge. The solution was to introduce Unilock Brussels Block in Sandstone. Brussels Block disrupts the Copthorne herringbone pattern, with a singular perimeter border that follows the inset border of the tri-colored Copthorne, directing the eye up the walkway. Bringing in Brussels Block gives the overall design an antiqued, rustic appearance that is timeless and relaxing to the eye. The laying pattern eventually flips on its head, as Brussels Block makes up the first paver patch of the walkway, paired with a double inset border of Copthorne that subtly bends with the walkway to create cohesion in its design. Continuing along the walkway, a modest elevation change midway flips the pattern back to Copthorne as the main paver rug, creating visual breaks that achieved a warm, welcoming entry while still maintaining the path’s aesthetic connection to the driveway.
