Washington, DC, United States
To make way for this new classically inspired shingle style residence in Washington’s Palisades neighbourhood, an older home in disrepair had to come down. “The original structure was poorly built and under maintained,” architect Anthony Barnes told Luxe Interiors + Design, “It made more sense to plan a new house in the spirit and language of the old one.” Barnes Vanze Architects, Inc. designed the new house in the original style and on the original footprint. Kaz Malachowski of Falcon Construction Inc. reused as many materials as possible in the new build. It features a sweeping, wrap-around porch with dark trim and shingle detailing and curved porches on the upper stories that look out to stunning river views. Luxe Interiors + Design revealed, “Traditional furnishings include antique Persian rugs and case goods, as well as upholstered pieces by George Smith. Light fixtures are mostly period, and the homeowners’ collections of natural history paraphernalia and black-and-white photography are another nod to days gone by.” The new home sits on a large corner lot with a front, side and backyard, large patio and detached garage.
