Portfolio: New Homes: Upstairs Downstairs on the River (2005)

This house was built on a vacant lot across from the Rappahannock River in downtown Fredericksburg. While surrounding one-story ranch-style homes do not take rull advantage of the riverfront views, this client was determined that we do so, and asked that all the main living spaces be on the upper level where views both up and down river are best. Because the program had more space above than below, and because the client wanted an attached garage on this very narrow lot, the house features a port-cochere with the dining room above. First and second story porches face the spectacular river views. Generously proportioned interior stairs and a dumb waiter ease the climb to the second floor.
