Talbot County, MD Renovation


Situated on a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay on Maryland’s eastern shore, this residence is a renovation and addition to a home built at the turn of the century in the Queen Anne Style. It received one of six 2007 American Institute of Architects Chesapeake Bay Chapter awards for excellence. The current owners wanted to bring the home back to it’s original form and triple the square footage. To mitigate the overall size of the addition, most of the program was recessed below grade to house a wine cellar, home theater, exercise room and game room. The footprint of the addition is an attenuated version of the original home’s Greek cross plan and links gently to the original structure with a glassy gallery which has become the new Entry. The Pool Cabana mirrors an original shed located across the front yard, and is wedged into the hill to resemble a Well House from the entry side.
