An Open Home That’s Twice As Nice

We often feature floor plans or open homes on the blog, since they’re just so fun to write about (and experience). This week, we have a special open home to introduce to you. This open home in Northern Virginia, being held next Saturday, October 29th, is actually two wonderful timber frame homes. With both a main home and a charming guest house, this property has something for everyone and is a great showcase for two distinct styles of Timberpeg home.

The main house under construction.

As you look at the exterior of the main home, you may be reminded of the Afton or Mount Holly homes we have featured on the blog before. The home was indeed inspired by these two homes, and at 3020 square feet is also right between these two homes in size as well. The main floor measures 2150 square feet of a hybrid design, where the public areas and porch are timber-framed but the wings are of conventional construction.

The highlights of the first floor include a large combination laundry and crafts room, sizable pantry and spacious master suite. There is also a large private den right off the great room, and a fully timbered screen porch with fireplace. Upstairs is a loft space plus an additional two bedrooms with individual en-suite bathrooms.

The guest house nearing completion.

The guest house drew inspiration from our Hawk Mountain plan, but has been modified substantially. Although this guest house features another two-car garage, it sits alongside the house rather than having the home placed above the garage. The house is built in the style of a Swiss chalet, with eastern white pine frame and steeply-pitched end gable design. The guest home has one bedroom and bathroom on the 710 square foot main floor, along with a living room and kitchen. The upper-level 375 square foot loft has an additional bunk sleeping area.

We think these two homes are a great showcase for some of the multiple styles possible with Timberpeg homes.
