Piedmont Vineyards (Waverly)

-A A +A
c. 1780, c. 1840. 1945, remodeling, David Adler. VA 245, 4.2 miles north of The Plains and VA 55

A landmark on the road between The Plains and Middleburg, this ocher-colored house has a long and complex history beginning with its inner core, which is a stone cottage, and continuing with the addition of the front and the Greek Revival portico and still later the Gothic Revival rear wing. David Adler, the Chicago society and country house architect, made some additions for Mr. and Mrs. Thomas W. Furness, who were personal friends and whom he visited often. He created the entrance garden, arbor, and gazebo and decorated the porch with stencils. Now owned by Piedmont Vineyards, the house can be visited.
