Category: New Construction
Property: 18671 Trinity Church Road, Goose Creek Historic District
Owner: Brian & Carol Young
Project Description: The 2012 award for new construction recognizes a very unique approach to designing a new home in the rural Goose Creek Historic District. Inspired by the historic stone bank barns that dot the western Loudoun landscape, Brian and Carol Young’s Trinity Church Road residence was designed to appear as a barn converted to a residence. Using the topography of the lot, local fieldstone and replicating key architectural elements from historic bank barns, such as sliding barn doors over a glass entrance, the Young’s have created a modern residence that blends seamlessly into the historic, agricultural landscape of Goose Creek.More Photos
2008 Award Winner for New Home Construction in Loudoun County
In 2008, the Joint Architectural Review Board (JARB) awarded seven Historic District Design Excellence Awards in six categories.
Country Living Associates was awarded for best New Construction in a Rural Setting.
Category: New Construction – Rural Setting
Property: “Updegrove House” Hughesville Road, Goose Creek Historic District
Owners: David and Lynne Updegrove
Project Description: Construction of new single family house and detached garage in the Goose Creek Rural Historic District. This project is an excellent example of compatible new construction in rural Goose Creek. The massing of the home is well articulated with the use of dormers, changing roof planes and materials.
The garage is attached at an angle by a breezeway for a “carriage house” effect. The front elevation of the home adopts a simple farmhouse design, with Victorian elements. The rear elevation features larger expanses of windows that are not visible from the road, but allow the owners to take advantage of rural views.
