Nestled in a quiet street amongst grand housing stock, our clients came to us with a very specific set of guidelines: Elegance, style and enough space for even the biggest of families. A knock down, rebuild was the only way to pursue this dream, and once a suitable site was found, we began creating the perfect family entertainer.
The result is a double storey delight. A double garage on each side allows for 4 cars to drive both in and out of the site without the requirement for reversing.
A large, double height ceiling and staircase create a feeling of openness and grandeur upon entry . Stepping down from the foyer into the heart of the home there is a modern, double Kitchen overlooking the dining and family rooms. The open plan living zone is connected to the outdoor room via ‘cornerless’ timber Bi-Fold doors, opening the interior to the outside; as well as a fully fitted out theatre room with tiered seating and ceiling mounted projector.
All this overlooks a stunning northern swimming pool, the resort-style rear yard and a fully self contained pool house with a guest bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room.
Back in the main residence, All four bedrooms and study room are upstairs, three minor bedrooms all with walk in robes and one with its own en-suite while the other 2 bedrooms sharing a good sized bathroom.
The impressive main master suite has its own balcony access looking over the swimming pool, an opulent en-suite and walk in robes, as well as an all important retreat area which creates a perfectly private, secluded parents zone.
This house offers its owners a year round escape from work and school life as well as a destination to catch up with family and friends, It really is; a holiday home, without leaving home.
This project required a Building Permit with the second crossover Permit obtained by the client.

We took a road trip to Mason City, IA to stay @ the Historic Park Inn Hotel. The last remaining Frank Lloyd Wright designed and built hotel in the world. We stayed for two nights in the middle of the week in the Historic Suite. From the hotel website: "The Historic Suite was originally two guest rooms that shared a bathroom in between. It was sold as two separate rooms and considered quite an upgrade back in 1910. It has been restored to its original state, complete with wall mounted sinks, an original clawfoot tub and a full size brass bed. We have combined it to be rented as a two room suite with a private bath". What was interesting was that the manager called us about a week before our visit concerned that we had booked this suite but felt it would not be enough space for our family of four. We were offered the Premier Suite as a free upgrade. The only problem we told them was we wanted the two rooms so the children could go to bed early & the adults could stay up longer. The Premier was only one large room. They understood & we kept our reservations as is. very thoughtful. The children enjoyed the stay but were let down by the lack of a pool. Then during our tour of the building, we were told there was a "ballroom" & that we could tour that as well. The children’s eyes lit up @ that offer. Then when we got to the large open room, they looked around for the "ball pit" & were quite disappointed. All was made right when the end of our trip included a stay @ the Blue Harbor Water-park resort in Sheboygan, Wi which did have a pool. But still, no ball pit.

Purchased by my grandparents Thomas Walter and Violet Emma Dove Biscoe in the 1920’s or 30’s and overlooking the St. Clarence Creek this 100 acre farm was where as young boy through my mid teens that I would spend much time. In 1969 my grandparents sold the property to the Capper family who, at that time, owned and operated Capper’s Nursery in Southern Virginia. And who, shortly before, had begun purchasing large farms in Southern Maryland, particularly, in Dameron Maryland along St. Jeromes Neck Road. My grandfather passed in 1971.
And as he had promised my grandfather Mr. Capper permitted my grandmother to remain in the house on the farm until her death, or for as long as she wanted to.
After experiencing a stroke in the early 80’s my great grandmother, Violet Biscoe, moved to Joe Baker’s Village in Lexington Park MD.
As one of the largest black land owners on St. Jerome’s Neck Road Walter and Violet Biscoe were well respected. And always held their own. My grandfather sometimes told the story that in order for him to have purchased the land, a Jewish man agreed to purchase it first and then resell it to him. And it was not uncommon for KKK members who lived on nearby farms to threaten my grandparents by leaving white crosses in the woods, or carved into trees.
