This custom home was designed to fit naturally into the 3 acre wooded building site in McLean, Virginia. Our

goal was to meld the home into the natural wooded setting and to capture the phenomenal views on all sides of the property.

The home was designed so the owner could live and entertain on the first floor and have bedrooms for her

grand children on the 2nd floor. So we created a casual, yet elegant, open floor plan on the first floor.

We designed built-ins with an open feel to divide the dining room from the family room. And the

built-ins around the fireplace we were able to provide focal points and at the same time create and warm

and cozy feeling.

Rooms were laid and organized with the objective of maximizing the wooded views from every room.

This first floor is ideal for entertaining and convenient for the owner to retire to her bedroom suite off

the entry foyer.

The owner also wanted to have a special space just for her grandkids where they could play yet provide

privacy for her. So we created a second floor “kids-family room”. This space could be converted to a

fourth bedroom in the future.

We designed a custom marble curved sink in the powder room. The idea was

To create a unique touch that would set the room off and give it an elegant feel.
