We believe memorable homes begin with the driveway!
This South Carolina estate is stunning and even more memorable with the exterior driveway and motor court design using Historic European Cobblestone. The homeowners selected a classic historic granite cobble, in a unique 6” x 6” size-square. (It’s available in original 6” high size for sand base installations or can be sawn to 2” for setting on a mortar base.) In addition, the design team/homeowners incorporated a large granite 6″ x 9″ rectangle cobble used for curbing/perimeter edging. This cobblestone along with all the various size cobbles we sell, originates and is reclaimed from Western Europe. This custom South Carolina driveway and motor court was an impressive project! Overall, there were 16 containers delivered directly from Europe, with more than 19,000 sf of granite cobblestone and 3,700 linear feet of the large granite 6″ x 9″ rectangle curbing. Installation consultation was provided on-site by Monarch Stone International co-owner Anthony Van Liefde. The Collins Group of Pendleton, South Carolina, did an impeccable job with design and installation with this incredibly unique and beautiful material.
Monarch Stone International is the leading importer and supplier of authentic antique reclaimed European cobblestone in the U.S.
For more than 20 years, our company has been the trusted source for beautiful homes and elegant hotels nationwide. We import an extensive selection of sizes and types; traditional European squares or rectangles in granite or a very hard, dense European sandstone appropriate for all freeze/thaw conditions as well as several rare varieties; such as, beautiful Historic Sidewalk Cobble. All our varieties are an exceptional collection of cobble and curb, originally harvested, quarried, hand trimmed and installed in village and city streets in Europe 100 to 400 years ago. The top surface is naturally weathered and worn after centuries of exposure to climate, wear and tear from foot traffic, horses and carriages. The patina is impressive and unmistakably real.
