Authentic Williamsburg Colonial House, architectural home plans
The Brafferton (1723), in
Williamsburg, Virginia, began its life as a school for boys. It has been in
continuous use ever since, as a school, dormitory and offices for the College
of William and Mary. Very much residential in appearance it is an elegant,
efficient rectangular plan, 2 stories, with attic and full basement.
As a work of art these prints are
worth purchasing in their own right. For those of you interested in building a
historically inspired house, these plans could easily be adapted to a flat to
moderately sloping sight. The first floor consists of 3 rooms around stair hall
that runs the depth of the house. The second floor is practically identical to
the first, though it could easily be altered to make 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and
a master bedroom suite. The attic is large and lit by several dormers. It would
also make excellent flexible living space. With exterior dimensions measuring
just under 34’x52’ and an upright appearance this house would be most suitable
in an urban or suburban context.
The prints you are purchasing are
crisp, high resolution black line copies on white bond paper. The original
drawings were beautifully delineated in 1976. This extensive set of 7 drawing sheets
includes a site plan, four floor plans, 2 elevations and an exterior detail of
the front entry.

If you are planning to build: These plans are not
complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local
permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing
and other details and information necessary for construction. But your
local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and
add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design
information about a REAL colonial building, not a pseudo-colonial tract
house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket
