A neutral palette infused with pale gold and blue undertones infuses a warm light throughout this 1920s Georgian Revival house designed by W. Duncan Lee. Formal living spaces with elegant historical details feature spare, neo-classical furnishings and contemporary upholstered pieces paired with lush, flowing drapery. White custom cabinetry in the kitchen, pantry, and breakfast room creates a fresh, casual ambiance.

New landscaping for this historic property draws inspiration from Virginia landscape architect, Charles Gillette, c. 1945. French doors open to three bluestone terraces and banks of white Meidiland roses descending to an elliptical pool ringed by American hornbeams and boxwood. A parterre garden features an abundance of flowers, blooming bushes, and flowering trees.
