Little Falls

Little Falls

— McLean, Virginia —

PICTURESQUELY SITED among mature oaks on a bluff overlooking the Potomac River, this new residence is inspired by early-twentieth-century homes designed by Mellor Meigs & Howe and Robert McGoodwin. The entrance façade and projecting wing of the carriage house form a gracious welcome, setting the stage for the commodious sensibility instilled throughout the house. A modified pinwheel footprint engenders maximal daylight and access to river views while masking the size of the house with charming variety in its rear elevation. A cadence of projecting bays and recessed porches organize interior sightlines towards the water. On the exterior, cascading stone terraces extend living areas into the dramatic setting.
