A minimalist house in the countryside with 30-foot chimneys

Three 30-feet chimneys jut into the air on this home outside of
Charlottesville, Virginia, with their tall off-white stacks visible
from almost every vantage point on the 45-acre property.

Working closely with the owners, TW Ryan Architecture
designed a modern home with nods to Southern Colonial architecture,
particularly in the gabled roofs and large chimneys.

Inside, the open-plan dining area and spacious living room are
separated by a white brick wood-burning fireplace that stretches up
to the ceiling. It sounds dramatic, but the result is surprisingly
understated thanks to a creamy palette contrasted only by deep red
couches next to the hearth.

The rest of the home flows into different wings housing the
children’s bedrooms and playrooms, as well as a guest room and a
library with built-in bookshelves. The master suite, which features
an office and artist’s studio, sits slightly removed from the
rest of the house and houses yet another fireplace for maximum
coziness.
