Classic Beauty

Architect Wayne Good spearheads a Shingle-style makeover on the water

Classic Beauty - A commercial builder and his wife, an interior designer, purchased a nondescript spec house while it was still under construction.

They had fallen in love with its wooded lot overlooking Maynadier Creek, a tranquil tributary of the Severn River near Crownsville, Maryland. After they completed the interiors with high-quality detailing, the owners eventually turned to Good Architecture to improve the home’s curb appeal. “They loved the floor plan and interior design but cringed at the exterior,” recounts Wayne Good. “They asked us to remake it in a way that would be compatible with the classical interior.”

Collaborating with Winchester, Good evaluated the home’s existing forms and massing and determined that integrating classic Shingle-style elements would not disturb the home’s interior spaces. The team dramatically altered the lines of the roof, trading asphalt shingles for slate. Classic columns and trim detailing now enhance the façade, and the brick foundation is clad in fieldstone. Horizontal lap siding was replaced with cedar shakes and true divided-lite wood windows were installed throughout.

Structural changes include the addition of a roof to a waterfront-facing deck to create a traditional porch. Above the garage, a charming stair tower and dormer converted an unfinished attic into guest quarters.
