This English Country home was constructed of the most enduring materials: reclaimed red brick and red southern Cypress.  Cypress is virtually impervious to the elements and requires no painting or other treatment. The main entrance door, garage doors, all exterior wood and the wood on the three porches are solid Cypress.
