Fauquier County Farmhouse

The Plains, VA

This historic farmhouse was fully renovated and expanded to provide contemporary and efficient living space while retaining the character of the original (circa 1785) stone house and (circa 1860) three-story addition.

  • Original form and materials are repeated throughout the exterior
  • Covered porches at the front and rear provide a sense of arrival and seasonal living space
  • On the main level, a large central hall is flanked by a library/gathering room and dining room, which leads to the large modern kitchen and adjacent family/great room
  • New bathrooms throughout the residence provide updated amenities
  • Historic details add charm and traditional styling to gathering areas
  • The addition of geothermal heating, cooling, and domestic hot water—a focus of the work—improves overall comfort and energy efficiency.
