PORTFOLIO > Carter’s Grove Plantation
Hull Cove Design is the lead design firm working to restore the historically significant Carter’s Grove Plantation in Williamsburg, Virginia. Built in 1750 and currently set on over 450 acres on the James River, Carter’s Grove is perhaps the country’s most significant example of Georgian architecture having survived both the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. Exceptional care is being taken to return the property to a private residence from its previous use as Colonial Williamsburg museum. HCD is working closely with the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and other design consultants to fully restore and preserve the mansion and stables. The challenges have been great including complete removal of the existing utility and HVAC systems and replacement with efficient new systems that lessen the impact to the antique structure of the building. With the property falling into such disrepair in recent years, Hull Cove is thankful and humbled to a part of the team bringing the property back to life and preserving it for the next generation.
