Project: Little Magothy
This renovation tells the story of a classic 1930s farmhouse, reimagined. The complete overhaul modernized and expanded the original home while enhancing the visibility of its stunning views of the Little Magothy River.
The undertaking was enormous. The home’s original interior was completely gutted, its mechanical systems replaced to reduce energy demands, and the aging structure stabilized. A 3,000-square foot addition provides copious, modernized space. Many of the renovations were thoughtfully planned to allow for enhanced enjoyment of the bucolic surroundings. The first-floor rooms open to an expansive deck with unobstructed views looking north to Gibson Island and the Chesapeake Bay. The bedroom suites share the waterfront view and an eastern exposure to surrounding cornfields that are still farmed yearly. The garage-turned-poolhouse was renovated to add a home office, guest rooms with full bathroom, a laundry room, a changing room for pool guests, and a three-car garage. Atop the garage sits an additional guest room and home gym. A large gathering space in the pool house features 24 ft. ceilings, a kitchen, and a stone fireplace. A loft area, accessible only by a custom teak ladder, offers three built-in bunks. The expansive renovations render the property ripe for memory making.
