Enchanting Restoration

This historic cottage in Arlington, Virginia, underwent a renovation designed to recover and restore its former enchanting style. The home had the bones of a traditional colonial, and despite a renovation in the ’80s that left it bogged down with heavy oak trim and terra-cotta tile, the couple was able to see through to the charm beneath.

When homeowners who are passionate about travel and their homelands decide to build the house of their dreams, the result is nothing short of spectacular. Modeled after a traditional Swiss chalet, with high, angular roofs, wood siding, and rich ornamentation in the form of woodwork, this home is a must-see.
