Sherwood Farm

This 18,930 s.f. residence near Charlottesville is a customized “smart house” with old-world charm. Exterior limestone accents with a granite stone veneer, as well as a classic slate-roof, disguise its high-tech energy features, including geothermal heating and cooling, plus hot water radiant floor heat provided by a high efficiency gas-fired boiler, which also provides all domestic hot water. Also the house has a "smart" electrical system, which controls all lighting in the home. The home boasts concrete and steel bar joists on the first floor and floor trusses on the second level. Wall studs are 2’ x 6’ Timberstrand, and windows are custom double-hung with traditional counterweights. A clay tennis court and a large pool/in-ground hot tub also were constructed on the grounds.
