Blending the house and garage exteriors

Butler Stone - Med Gray, Dark Gray, Charcoal, Cream, Yellow, Dark Rust, Mica

We own a 1947 Cottage in Maryland. The exterior is 98% Butler stone (see above) which is now very difficult to find. You can even see a bit of the mica. It has become necessary to build a garage. A similar exterior would be very expensive. One suggestion is placing stone along the bottom third of the structure, but we worry it would look out of place. Using a “similar” stone would look off. The Nichiha Sierra Savannah Smooth could be a good option. About the garage what color for the siding? Stone ideas anybody?
