This new old Virginia Style Farmhouse is on one of the few remaining open lots in the historic horse country of Middleburg, Virginia. Our goal for this home was to provide a greener cozy home for a small family while still maintaining a generous enough space for entertaining and a strong link to the outdoors. This house has great pastoral views of the surrounding farms while taking advantage of being accurately located on an east-west axis to maximize passive solar. Other green focuses were super insulation; efficient HVAC, electric and water; and reducing waste by using lumber from the house clearing to build such items as barn doors and bathroom vanities.
The home was also designed to age with its family and be their forever home. The house was planned with two master suites, one being handicapped accessible on the first floor and the second being upstairs located near the younger children. The kitchen is the heart of this home and and will also act as the main dining space with its large farm style table attached to the kitchen island. For more details on this house check our blog post “Sneak Peak of the Middleburg House”. We enjoyed collaborating with the owner on all of the flooring, lighting and wall finishes while incorporating some salvaged and repurposed items to bring this whole package together.
“The Middleburg House” was completed in August 2014.
