Hillwood In-law Suite
Situated on property that once served as a makeshift Civil War hospital, the new pool/in-law house is a standalone structure that connects via walkways to The Birch House, a stop on the Virginia Civil War Trail.
WINN Design + Build incorporated touches of old and new that would honor the historic traditions in the original structure while giving the in-laws all the amenities they needed in the new house.
The three-level home includes a full basement, loft and a work space for the father, who is a retired industrial arts teacher with an extensive collection of professional tools. The main level offers a bedroom suite, kitchen and family room with structural and decorative wrought iron details throughout, giving the open floor plan an industrial feel.
WINN knew the home’s scale and proportion were critical to the overall visual impact of the property and worked closely with the Historical Architectural Review Board to achieve a visually appealing and historically accurate Pool House.
This house was a featured property on the Tuckahoe Elementary Home & Garden Tour in 2017.
