Privacy and Serenity in Central Virginia
Architecturally designed ~ at home in nature

Imagine.....waking up and looking out your window to
see the sun reflecting off the lake in your back yard.
Watch the pair of geese swim with 6 little goslings in tow.
Toss a line in a catch a bass! Then grill your catch and
enjoy nature and the gentle breezes with your breakfast in the screen room.
After breakfast, shower outside. Go ahead!
No one can see you here because it is so private.
After dressing in your luxurious master suite,
take a stroll through Poplar Grove golf course (adjoining).
Stop in to make dinner reservations at the club house.
Meet a few friends for a game of tennis or take a trip into town
for lunch at Travellers Restaurant... what an idyllic town this is!
Antique stores and boutiques, a library, and restaurants all within
walking distance of central downtown parking.
This quaint town which is the County seat of Amherst county
is only about 10 minutes from your front door. After dinner at the golf club, go to Sweet Briar College for a concert or gallery showing.


Norman Palmer redesigned this home to be a vacation home. A retreat.
The details are astounding. This renovation took over a year,
so Norman had time to think through all the details and not cut corners.

The home is secluded, yet only 15 minutes from Lynchburg
and 40 minutes from Charlottesville.

    We followed "green" building principals as much as possible.
        • restoring the original wide plank western red cedar board and batten siding by giving it a facelift, brightening it, then 2 coat staining it a subtle bark color to blend the house into its natural surroundings saved valuable resources
        • using luxurious non-porous, no-maintenance natural quartz stone
          countertops by Cambria, a green and healthier alternative to granite
