Located on the shores of the Chesapeake, this residence sits on a point of land with a 270 degree view. Inspired by the five-part Tidewater Colonial house type, the program was broken into three two-story pavilions linked by a pair of one-story 'hyphens' bending around a central courtyard. The massing is kept very simple and formal on the courtyard side and becomes more complex and expressive on the waterside, gesturing out to capture views and create indoor/outdoor spaces. The central facade of the house, a simple two story rectangle articulated in Federalist brick detailing, is kept rigidly symmetrical as was common in Colonial architecture. The wings of the home are clad in horizontal siding to look as though they were added during a later 'Arts and Crafts' period. The wood framing for the wings allows a more sculptural expression of the interior in which the floor plan is expressed more overtly on the home's exterior with turreted roofs, bay windows, structural brackets and columned trellises. This home was the cover story in the Washington Post Real Estate section in April of 2006 and featured in Chesapeake Home Magazine.
