Colonial Revival

Project Description

This home is inspired by the colonial revival tradition of the mid-Atlantic states which pairs formal elegance with stone, creating a casual elegance. Large modillians and 2-story Temple of the Winds columns speak to the house on a large, massing scale, while the front door and the flanking Palladian windows display a finer level of detail. Two carriage houes flank the house in the front creating a motor court. They are each connected by breezeways detailed with simple Tuscan columns. The Palladian windows and the quaint breezeways reveal themselves only from the privacy of the courtyard.

The owners needed an open plan that would be ideal for entertaining and raising their children. The home features a formal and informal dining room, study, den, spacious master bedroom, guest bedrooms and grand staircase in addition to a media room, English pub-style bar, and more. A unique feature to the home is located in the kitchen where a glass floor with an antique iron gate provides a peek into the wine cellar below.
