Design Details That Wow: Virginia Elegance

Virginia Elegance is an exquisitely detailed transitional home with a traditional style and contemporary feel. The architect created the custom spiral staircase to be a “wow” feature as part of the home’s front elevation, so it was important for it to be visible from the street. Therefore, the staircase was centered within the home’s oversized front windows.

Featured in the foyer, the staircase is introduced with a traditional Calcutta and black marble floor design detail. The home owner plays the piano, so the architect planned space for a piano underneath the staircase. The three-story staircase spirals around an oversized, elegant chandelier that is visibly striking from each level. The spacious landings on the upper levels create a feeling of grandness.

The custom railing introduces a contemporary pattern that simply complements the beauty of the wood and stair design. The stair is completely wood constructed, custom designed by the home’s architect, and manufactured by an award-winning stair craftsman.

The staircase provides design inspiration to both the home owners and passersby, and embodies timeless sophistication.

Judges’ Comments | This spiral staircase is absolutely amazing. The floor treatment is impressive and extends over multiple levels. The matching chandelier that extends between levels is a great touch as well.
