Hilltop Bungalow

A new build designed into a hill top in the Del Ray neighborhood. This new construction project boasts four porches for outdoor living, a stone fireplace, custom millwork and beams and built-ins throughout. Although new construction the house integrates into the neighborhood as if it's always been there.  

Color Meets Classic 

We worked hard to design a house that met all of the needs of our clients, had the right scale for the neighborhood and the lot and still held the classic elements of a bungalow. As one of our favorite design to date this house has a front and rear porch, masonry fireplace, nooks and built-ins to take advantage of all spaces and completely customized for our clients. Color was integrated in a bold yet classic way throughout. 


Farm House to Queen Anne 

Originally an early 1900s farmhouse in the heart of Del Ray, we gutted the interior and added a side and rear addition to create a library, new bedrooms and bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, screen porch and sitting room. Traditional design details and airy colors make for a serene and classic home. 

Tradition with a Twist 

This craftsman bungalow was a total new build but the architecture and style perfectly meld into the Del Ray neighborhood. It was designed in collaboration with our clients to remain both relevant through the years and have a bit of a twist to make it uniquely theirs. Each detail was carefully constructed and thoughtfully designed, from the color scheme, to the trim package, tile selections, lighting and custom built-ins. 

Custom Build with Southern Charm

This complete renovation is located in the Beverly Hills neighborhood of Alexandria. We worked with our clients to incorporate their dream home wishlist, along with custom details throughout to create an elegant home with southern charm. 

Urban Oasis 

Originally a classic American brick pre-war home we reconfigured the inside, keeping the original fireplace, digging a new basement and adding two porches for three season living. We partnered with our clients on this design to create their dream home, complete with a metal roof to hear the rain, custom paint finishes on the fireplaces and a shell-style shower in the master bathroom. This home feels like a work of art for the stylish residents. 

Modernized Bungalow

As an original American Foursquare, we kept, and modernized, the front facade, dug out a full-height basement and added on to the rear and side on this unusually large lot in the Del Ray neighborhood. The interior boasts white oak floors, a gourmet kitchen, coffered ceilings, masonry fireplace and a luxurious master suite. 


Windmill Hill has built over thirty houses in the City of Alexandria alone. Our priority is to design a house that honors both the neighborhood, and when possible, the original home, while still designing a modern layout and a home that feels new.
