This 9,000 square foot residence incorporates design elements from classical architects Vitruvius and Palladio. Additional architects Inigo Jones and Sir Christopher Wren helped guide the design of the home. Symmetry was a main consideration when designing the building footprint and envelope. The exterior employs a hipped roof typical of the Georgian era with symmetrical chimneys. A single type of stone is used for the facade indicative of the time when stone would often be extracted from a nearby quarry. Symmetrical six over six double-hung windows painted in a creamy trim provide contrast to the grey stone. A concrete masonry band runs horizontally around the exterior of the building and denotes the change in the first and second floors. The entry door is paneled and painted with a transom window above to filter light into the main entrance hall. Boxwood hedges line the walls of the residence and lead your eye up to the exterior staircase. A detailed portico resting on columns of the classical Doric Order shelters the entrance to the home. Centered above the portico is a Palladian window. The window’s iconic curve inspired details throughout the interior including the central curving staircase.
The spatial relationships of the residence are derived from typical Georgian planning with some modern adaptations. Off to one side of the entry hall rests a formal dining room while the other side is occupied by an office and sitting room. The kitchen, pantry, and mudroom also inhabit the first floor with the opposite side being home to the master suite. The second floor is devoted to guest rooms and living quarters for the children as well as an upstairs library.
