Ware Neck, Virginia
This three-bedroom residence and separate arts studio is built on land that has been in the Grant family since the Revolutionary War. In the residence, French doors lead out to a spacious screened porch on the west side, giving 180-degree panoramic views of the Ware River. Built-in china cabinets enhance the contemporary design of the interior while hardwood floors maintain the “cottage” style of the residence. The artist studio, also used as a guesthouse, contains one bedroom, a spacious foyer, and a cozy reading room. The studio design complements the residence, maintaining hardwood flooring throughout, while borrowing from the historic context of other structures on the Ware Neck peninsula.
