NORTH GARDEN RESIDENCE North Garden, VA
This residence is locate on a 700 acre farm in North Garden, Virginia, framed by a forest edge. Waterstreet Studio worked closely with the owners to create a unique home and garden that accommodate the growing family while acknowledging the property’s natural integrity.
Waterstreet’s landscape architects carefully conceived the site experience. The journey to the residence begins on a mile-long drive that weaves through a restored meadow and meanders through the forest, gracefully following the topography to reveal the home at its end. Upon arrival at the house, outdoor garden rooms mediate between the forest edge and open meadow, evoking an emotional landscape that celebrates seasonal dynamics. Layered planting calls attention to the variety of colors, textures, light, tones and graceful movements in the landscape. A pool, spa and multi-level terraces sit within this landscape, framed by stone walls, and provide many areas to relax with family. In more recent years, Waterstreet designed a fire pit terrace in the landscape adjacent to the main residence.
