This historically inspired manor is home to a retired couple who have a serious love for animals. They wanted to build a home where horses, dogs and cats had room to roam until they found permanent homes.
The house sits on a 1,000-acre piece of land in the Green Springs Historic District, a protected agricultural landscape sprinkled with historic farmhouses and manors, and the couple wanted to make sure their home would blend in. Joel Barkley, John Ike and Thomas Kligerman of Ike Kilgerman Barkley Architects worked with interior designer Renée O'Leary to create a colorful, cheerful and light-filled home that looks as if it's been there for generations.
