Fernhill

Green Springs, Virginia

Situated on 65 acres in the Green Springs Historic District in Virginia’s Piedmont, this new farmhouse draws upon the local vernacular for inspiration using a palette of white clapboard siding, large double-hung windows, standing seam copper roofs with dormers, reclaimed heart pine floors, stone foundations and stone chimneys. Several one-story wings extend from the two story central portion lending the structure the appearance of a house that has grown over time. Though the house is currently used as a weekend retreat, the plans were conceived with an eye toward fulltime use in the years ahead and incorporate a well appointed home office and a master suite on the main floor. Porches, both open and screened, along with a pair of stone terraces extend the living areas into the gardens and natural surroundings. The house seamlessly combines modern amenities and the latest technologies with the classic character and patina of an old farmhouse.
