Wehr Residence
Fulton MD

Built between 1895-1905, this Farmhouse suffered many questionable additions/renovations over the years. However, the clients fell in love with the proximity to the District of Columbia and the bucolic nature of the site. The first design task was to remove all the previous additions and start from what was basically the original structure. On the first floor, a new large Kitchen-Dining area, Walk-In Pantry, Mud Room, Entry, and Powder Room are provided. The existing Living Room and Den will be renovated. Two renovated Bedrooms, new Laundry Room, new Bathroom, and a new Owners Suite with ensuite Bathroom, are provided on the second floor. The Owners Suite has an attached Sitting Room- in the future the Sitting Room is designed to be converted to a fourth bedroom. The resultant design stays true to the original aesthetic of the Farmhouse with simple forms and massing, yet composes them in a way that is mindful of the site and the owners intended use of the home.
