Though it was built 15 years ago, Peter and Angela D.’s house off the Blue Ridge Parkway looks new. That’s thanks in large part to STOA, the local design-build firm they hired to make the home structurally sound and a bit more modern, as well as to take in the sprawling westward view over the Shenandoah Valley.

Dagget & Grigg’s design for Jim and Cynthia Stultz’s Palladian-style home in Albemarle included an ambitious hardscape with a semicircular wall at the rear terrace. To build it, they approached Shelton Sprouse, a veteran stonemason whose credentials include Poplar Forest, Ash Lawn-Highland and Monticello itself.
