Another ICAA tour!

Next Saturday, October 13,  join the ICAA Washington Mid Atlantic Chapter for a tour of three private residences on Maryland’s scenic Eastern Shore. First is a house at Follys Cove for a tour led by architect David Jones, who transformed a 1950s Cape Code style house into a symmetrical house distinguished by a dramatic classical portico which frames a water view.
Second is Timberlane Farm, an elegant example of Georgian Revival architecture. Architect Wayne L. Good recently completed a major renovation and will lead the tour featuring the house’s renovations and the addition of a pool pavilion complex.
Last will be Lombardy, a 250 acre estate with a Colonial Revival mansion. Over a five year period Neumann Lewis Buchanan Architects restored the house to its original splendor, renovated an eighteenth century guest house and barn, and sensitively designed new outbuildings. The house was featured in Period Homes Magazine.
I'm unable to attend as I'll be at Highpoint Market again, but hope some of you can attend and send me the details!  R.S.V.P. to susan.sapiro@classicist-washington.org.

I am such a sucker for a good Georgian Revival. Some of them are so beautifully done. They are often more opulently proportioned than the originals but especially when done in the 20's, the detail and craftsmanship is excellent. A good friend's family lives in one of them and it's a great place. Too bad you'll miss the tour ( I would skip Highpoint!)>

I wish I were closer — I'd love to see the house at Folly's Cove. Well, I'd love to see them all, of course.

Wow, I really wish I had the time to for this one. Hopefully, someone with a blog will go and tell us all about it.

Have a big time. These ring my bell.

Revival houses have their own special charms, and many are old enough now to have acquired their own patina of age. I love the green settings of these, especially the first and third ones.

How fun, the Colonial Revival sounds amazing. I can't wait to hear about the restoration from your perspective!
