Strawberry Hill Historic restoration

Built around1700, the house underwent additions in the 19th century and suff ered from overgrown greenery, sagging structure and decades of deferred maintenance. The vision for the home’s next 100 years was crafted by a team of experts all working together. Curative measures included structural repairs, waterproofing, temperature control, and a complete new circulatory system of wiring and sprinklers. Equipped with “Smart House” intuitive technologies, the homeowner maintains full control over lighting, audio, video, computer, heating, cooling, security systems and outbuildings from a central bank of self-monitoring operations.
New design features included converting a poorly enclosed “porch” into a four-season naturally floodlit sunroom with heated floors, and a bump-out addition that incorporates a new back stair, mud room, family room and master suite. New kitchen cabinetry and counters were crafted to showcase the original stonework and the original chimney was retrofitted with new ventilation above the range. A raised porch steps down to the formal lawn and gardens.
This project was featured in a 10-page spread in the April/May issue of Chesapeake Home magazine.
