The Difficult Run residence home by Robert M. Gurney. McLean, USA

Gateway design

The area of the site is fenced with a massive stone fence

The former access to the house was a narrow, winding driveway and limited parking space. Adjacent vegetation was overgrown and blocked light into the house in many areas. As part of the renovation, the parking lot was redesigned to accommodate large family and guest transportation.

The lot has a large plantation of trees

While the roof structure was retained, the roof itself was replaced with stainless steel. Also, the finishes were completed with a combination of slate, stucco, and limestone.

The walls of the house have solid glazing

Tall glass windows offer beautiful views of the forest

New areas include: large library, five bedrooms and bathrooms, gym, entertainment room, laundry room and more. These new rooms are placed vertically, but they are "downhill" rather than "uphill.
