7). 448 Windjammer Lane
White Stone, VA
The Allen Group, Inc.
Urbanna, VA 
Randall J. Kipp Architecture
Irvington, VA

The concept for this property was to provide a modern home in the style of a warehouse loft. The finishes and details are simple and minimal. The number of walls was reduced to as few as possible, and the windows are from floor to ceiling thus allowing a very open airy and transparent living style. The theme of the home is a hip urban hotel room . . . with a kitchen. The home is 2,800 square feet with a two car attached garage. Primary spaces of Living, Kitchen, Pantry, Dining, Master Bedroom Suite and Half Bath are located on the upper level of the home. The upper level is accessed by a stair as well as an elevator. The lower level includes 2 guest bedrooms, a studio, a full bath, laundry, storage and a two car attached garage. The home uses geothermal heating and cooling, LED lights, a whole house generator, and is wired for future photovoltaic cells (solar collectors). The combination of good site design and the careful selection of materials and products make this a very "green" home with minimal energy consumption.

8).  Dymer Beach Rd.
White Stone, VA
Coastal Builders, Inc.
Randall J. Kipp Architecture
Irvington, VA

This home was designed on the footprint of an earlier structure. This allowed the building to be built approximately 50 ft from Dymer Creek. A tall foundation of the building was constructed of rusticated concrete block to visibly and physically withstand the possibility of elevated water. The home is heated and cooled with a geothermal HVAC system. The first level of the home is designed as an open plan. This openness allows the easy congregation of guests around the gourmet kitchen, the dining, and living spaces without the interruption of walls. The windows are oversized to take advantage of the beautiful views. The home includes a three story viewing tower. The tower visually anchors the building to the toe of Ashley Cove and provides a breathtaking view out to Dymer Creek. The tower is comprised of floor to ceiling glass on three sides. The tower opens to the Kitchen on the first level, to the master bedroom on the second level, and to the sky on the third level. A circular stair takes the owners up to the third level of the tower which has a wet bar and observation deck.

10). 506 Chiltons Lane
Lancaster, VA
Virginia Building Solutions
Tappahannock, VA

The Scott’s custom designed Two Story waterfront home is the product of drawings provided to Virginia Building Solutions by the Scott’s daughter Sarah Elizabeth, a fourth year architectural student at the University of Virginia. The home was designed to replace the 50 plus year old cottage that had become outdated and lacked the space needed for the Scott’s waterfront living needs. Due to zoning and lot size restrictions the home had to be built on the footprint of the old home to be replaced, so the Scott’s decided to build UP. This two story design features open spaces facing the Rappahannock River on both levels. The Kitchen and Dining area face the water with an access to the deck. A double sided stone fireplace separates the kitchen and the living room, which opens up to the deck as well. The downstairs bedroom also faces the water and opens to a screen porch attached to the deck. The second floor suite slightly cantilevers over the screen porch below, and has its own second floor screen porch. Last but not least, the loft over the dining room provides magnificent South to Western views of the Rappahannock River for miles.

13). 91 Church Prong Lane
Weems, VA   
Coastal Builders, Inc.
White Stone, VA

A 1950’s Coastal Ranch home was a partial renovation & new construction project. The renovation involved replacing of existing shingles with cedar shakes and transforming the existing façade to blend with the new construction. The main project was converting an attached two car garage into a two bedroom, two full bath guest quarters with a second floor loft. The second floor loft is windowed on all four sides and takes full advantage of natural light throughout the day.  The first floor has two bedrooms, one of which is an on-suite with walk in shower. The once exterior breezeway, which separated house and garage, is now part of the home and has a full bath with a shower along with a new second entrance.  The project also included a new single car garage with workshop. The garage is attached by a connective breezeway. The new garage is built on a full basement, which has ample storage and temperature-controlled wine cellar. The interior of the new living space has many fine features with attention to detail. The exterior of the project has a new hardscape drive way, which blends well with the natural landscape.
