Gibson-Magerfield is proud to be an industry leader with several projects featured in these prestigious publications.
Architectural Digest - June 2008
This new Virginia farmhouse allowed Gibson/Magerfield to showcase some of their classical detailing skills. Their craftsmanship helped make this a unique project. The owner’s goal had been to build a 21st century home, but have it appear to be a traditional farmhouse with numerous additions reflecting its evolution from one generation to the next. The Green Springs Historic District carefully monitored the construction for its compliance with their concerns as to its appropriateness in such a significant area of central Virginia.
Southern Accents - January 2003
This 1852 Greek Revival Manor home and its seven accessory structures has, over a ten year period, become a showroom for Gibson/Magerfield Corp's complete range of talents. Working closely with Architect Robert Paxton and Landscape Architect Rachel Lilly, they have restored & added to the Main House, converted old buildings for new uses and built new structures. New Pool Houses, Pool, Barns, Terraces, Retaining Walls, and Parking Court are among the numerous refinements they have added to this spectacular property.
Architectural Digest - May 1999
A true Virginia Farm House which had evolved over its first 140 years and was in desperate need of a complete overhaul by 1995. Under the direction of Architect Robert Paxton, Landscape Architect, Rusty Lilly and Decorator Bunny Williams, Gibson/Magerfield Corp. completely renovated this farm in a record 18 months. Additional amenities include a Formal Garden, Pool, Tennis Court, 7 Acre Pond and full back-up electrical power.
The Headmaster’s house known as “The Residence” at Woodberry Forest School was designed by Thomas Jefferson for James Madison’s brother William. It is a spectacular example of an early American rural home. Gibson/Magerfield has now worked on this house twice in an effort to preserve its status as a Virginia Historic Landmark. Interior improvements have included an all new basement kitchen and family room. The upper floor has been restored to its original configuration. Most recently the entire roof was replaced with a new Freedom Gray terne coated copper to insure the weather tightness of the structure for the next 100 years.
