Franck & Lohsen Architects
Hunt Country, Virginia
Described by Country Life Magazine as “pure English Baroque,” this new manor house is nestled within 100 acres of the Virginia Hunt Country.
The exterior of the house is constructed of Indiana Limestone and Brazilian granite as the water table. Exterior detailing, such as the carved stone pediments, brackets and urns, custom bronze doors, mahogany windows, and a graduated slate roof with lead coated copper, signal a truly timeless character.
Custom marble mantles; a family room ceiling of cherry, inspired by architect Sir Edwin Lutyens; and a carved walnut paneled library are but a few details on the interior. A series of interior rooms opens onto a range of exterior rooms, such as the great lawn, the kitchen garden, and a new limestone domed temple folly at the terminus of the axis of the great allée.
