Astonishing Cape Cod Showcases Two Architects

Image Source: Zillow A modern addition melds with the traditional 1935 Cape Cod house designed by architects Milton Grigg and W.G. Clark. The Charlottesville, Va., home has locally quarried fieldstone, 12-over-12 windowpanes and plank floors throughout.

This unique property pairs history with modernity to create a surprising architectural twist in Charlottesville, Va. The quaint fieldstone Cape Cod with whitewashed dormers gives way to a modern addition off the back.

Designed by two generations of architects, the home holds the talents of the two men in a fine balance. Milton Grigg, known for his restoration work at Colonial Williamsburg and Monticello, designed the main house, while W.G. Clark, an appointed design critic at Harvard Graduate School, left his mark out back.

Hand-cut molding, 12-over-12 original windowpanes and a decorative center staircase are stand-out features in the Cape Cod. In contrast, expansive walls of glass and concrete frame the modern addition which includes a floating work station, library and living room.
