Three 30-feet chimneys jut into the air on this home outside of Charlottesville, Virginia, with their tall off-white stacks visible from almost every vantage point on the 45-acre property.
Working closely with the owners, TW Ryan Architecture designed a modern home with nods to Southern Colonial architecture, particularly in the gabled roofs and large chimneys.
Inside, the open-plan dining area and spacious living room are separated by a white brick wood-burning fireplace that stretches up to the ceiling. It sounds dramatic, but the result is surprisingly understated thanks to a creamy palette contrasted only by deep red couches next to the hearth.
The rest of the home flows into different wings housing the children’s bedrooms and playrooms, as well as a guest room and a library with built-in bookshelves. The master suite, which features an office and artist’s studio, sits slightly removed from the rest of the house and houses yet another fireplace for maximum coziness.
