Blue Ridge Farm Main House

I shared photos yesterday from the pool house of Blue Ridge Farm.  Today, I want to tell you how I was fortunate enough to come by the pool house photos, and these beautiful images of the main house that I'm sharing today.   Elizabeth Tinsmen is the mother in law of Madison Spencer, the architect who oversaw the renovation of Blue Ridge Farm.  She came across my original and much too brief feature on the incredible pool house her son in law designed for Blue Ridge Farm.  The combination of blue and white and chinoiserie made this pool house perfect for me to feature.  I'm so happy Elizabeth Tinsmen told her son in law about my post because he very generously sent a number of photos for me to share with you.  Thank you so much, Elizabeth!  I'm absolutely thrilled to get to feature all these lovely images at The Pink Pagoda.


The history of Blue Ridge Farm and how Madison Spencer came to renovate the impressive property is fascinating.  I encourage you to read about it here in Virginia Living.  








Blue Ridge Farm is an incredibly gorgeous place.  The main house is absolutely divine.  But, truth be told, I'd be happy -- well, actually beside-myself-thrilled with the pool house.  If you missed that yesterday, see it here.  And see more beautiful work here by Madison Spencer.

I can't tell you how much I adore this house. Their map room was the inspiration for my, as of yet, unfinished library.

It is abosolutely stunning. Great article in Virginaia Living, too - sounds like the house had the restoration dream team. Always nice to see preservation work in action as opposed to the sad alternative. Thanks for sharing!
All best,
Phyllis

Wow, these spaces are gorgeous, and make me a little proud to be a (mostly) traditionalist!

I became aware of Madison Spencer Architects and Cory-Spencer partners approx. 3 years ago. I am consistently impressed by their collaborative efforts to produce homes that are grounded by historical references, but freshened up for todays families and their lifestyles. Each project for them is developed with a personal viewpoint relative to the client, the home and the landscape. The images of this home and it's pool house are stunning examples of their brilliant work. Thanks for sharing this.....love your blog!
