The Inspiration for Greene Cottage came from Pear Valley.  Pear Valley is a very old little house in Northampton County Virginia

Pear Valley is dated to about 1740 which makes it one of the oldest buildings of its kind in VA.

Pear Valley was the home of a fairly wealthy planter and his family.  By today’s standards, Pear Valley is about as modest a family home as one could imagine.  It was built of all local materials, probably from trees that stood within a few hundred feet of it.  Brick was perhaps the most technologically sophisticated material used in the construction.

Pear Valley was the model we used to create Greene Cottage.  Greene Cottage is my interpretation of Pear Valley and is not in anyway an exact copy…Just an inspiration.
