18th century style meets 21st century comfort in GuernseyTingle’s neo-Georgian home design.

This neo-Georgian home fits comfortably into its golf and yacht club neighborhood with its larger, private home sites. The front elevation is a well-proportioned traditional brick design, with an understated elegance reinforced by quality period details: Flemish bond brick, bullnose water table foundation, and Chippendale railings on the 2-story entrance portico.

However, the rear of the house utilizes glazing to take advantage of sweeping views of the James River. The home’s interior spaces range from stately and formal dining and library spaces to open and casual great room and conservatory spaces.

The design’s high ceilings, coffers and refined trim, compliment the owner’s traditional furnishings and artwork. The use of clerestory windows and generous glass throughout the home open the interior to ample natural light and views, and provide a clear indication that this home is not a renovated Georgian, but conceived in the 21st Century.
