Designed by prominent New York architect William Lawrence Bottomley, who had been working in Richmond since 1915, Waverley Hill is an elegant expression of the five-part Flemish bond brick Georgian Revival style. Located on the outskirts of Staunton, this architecturally significant residence is complemented by grounds designed by landscape architect Arthur Shurtcleff of Boston who may be best known for his work on the restoration of Colonial Williamsburg in the 1930s.
Frazier Associates was retained by the third generation of the original owners’ family to make repairs and upgrades to the largely intact 1929 residence. The scope of work included repairs to the Buckingham slate roof, rebuilding of portions of the modillion-adorned cornice, and interior painting and refinishing of some woodwork. The brick walks were cleaned and brick repointed, exterior lighting upgraded, and enhancements made to the lawn and garden.
