SIMPLE & SERENE
A MODERN FARMHOUSE SET IN THE ROLLING HILLS OF THE VIRGINIA COUNTRYSIDE IS A CALM RESPITE FROM THE BUSTLE OF WASHINGTON, D.C.
CHRISTY NIELSON

This custom modern farmhouse, located about an hour away from Washington, D.C., is oriented on a site that overlooks the rolling hills and ever-changing landscape of the Virginia countryside. The 4,700-square-foot home gracefully balances a modern sensibility with refined rustic elements. Visually, the home is composed of three buildings designed to resemble an historic farm complex, and it is as sprawling as the views themselves.

“We spent a lot of time finalizing the orientation of the building and lining it up to take advantage of the views from the back of the house, out,” explains Ian Kelly, project director at Blackburn Architects. “I’m glad we spent the extra time to tweak the way in which everything is oriented, because these views are just magnificent.”
