Woodlawn is what happens when you combine an historic gem of a house with a truly breathtaking setting. A stunning restoration of a nearly 220 year old home transported over 150 miles to its present location at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The house fits in perfectly to the landscape and the resulting estate is the perfect weekend escape from city cares, or a full time refugee in a sophisticated country locale.
While Woodlawn boasts an 18th century exterior and interior, it is seamlessly integrated with 21 century comforts and technology. The exacting restoration made sure that energy efficiency and custom features are as critical to this house as is the meticulous attention given to historical details. The restoration is featured in numerous publications, including Custom Home, Preservation, Chesapeake Home, and The Washington Post. A short film about the restoration can be viewed here.
