Customizing A Classic

The firm was asked to help the new owners of a traditional 19th century Maryland farmhouse adapt the property for 21st century living by designing a series of sizeable additions. One pavilion is a state-of-the-art fitness suite. French doors surrounding the open, airy structure allow sweeping views of the redeveloped lawns of the estate. The pool house pavilion and outdoor family and guest gathering place features a fireplace that extends its usability well into the cooler seasons. An architecturally distinctive breezeway connects the fitness suite and garage/guesthouse to the main house. This property was featured on the cover and within the pages of Chesapeake Home in March of 2008 in a story entitled “Customizing a Classic.”
