A Country Estate Remodel

About this build

Rockpile completed a substantial remodel of a classic estate house located in Cobham, Virginia. The couple, who were relocating from out of state, hired the renowned designer Jeanette Whitson to orchestrate the changes. 

The interior of the home, which had been a rabbit warren of disconnected rooms, was rearranged along two intersecting axes, simplifying the layout into a pleasing and delightful order. Among other improvements, the kitchen was relocated, the fireplace and chimney were torn down and rebuilt, and an exterior wall was opened up with multiple French doors to overlook a stone terrace we added.

As with many of our projects, many local businesses and artists contributed: Edward Pelton built the custom range hood, Oliva Tile fabricated and installed the marble backsplash and shelving, and Albion Cabinets handcrafted the kitchen cabinetry and vanities.

Architect: Jennifer Whitson, Garden Variety Design
Location: Albemarle County
