Georgian Revival-style home

Georgian Revival-style is focused on detailed architecture. Photographer: Gordon Beall. The marble fireplace surround is original to the 1930's era home but was restored. A 19th century American oil painting is the focal point of the living room.

This is a 19th century antique Regency bombe chest.

              Note the English Regency-style settee set against the ornate woodwork of the staircase.

The George lll sideboard is from the early 19th century and the English oil painting is from the 18th century.

                                          The dining room is furnished in the color salmon.

The original kitchen was gutted and enlarged to make room for modern convieniences. The large-scale island visually balances the commercial-grade rangs area. Note the wrought iron pot rack.

The homeowners and their guests can enjoy views of the Chesapeake River from this renovated outdoor room.

      An unused attic was converted to two guest suites and this one features a 19th century antique bed.
