About Judith Dickinson
I grew up in Andover, Massachusetts and have lived and worked in Washington DC for the past four decades. No doubt my New England roots and Virginia's fascinating early American history lured me to explore and finally take on the preservation of this remarkable colonial plantation house.
Judith Dickinson purchased this Chalet in 2011
Why Judith Dickinson chose Pine Top
At a time of personal transition, I was looking for a project that was engaging and challenging. Wilton House was it! Though 250 years old, this colonial plantation house had never been modernized. And, miraculously, it retained almost all its original features -- masonry, flooring, woodwork, floorplan and exterior foot print. Even the paint dates back to the 18th century. All it needed was some tender loving care -- and modern plumbing, heating, cooling, and electrical systems. The result, I think, is a very livable home with all the modern comforts but with the authentic look, touch and feel of the 18th century original. Live here for several days, or a week, or a month and breath in 250 years of Virginia history.
What makes this Chalet unique
A just published book, 15 years in the making, by the folks at Colonial Williamsburg, entitled 'The Chesapeake House,' features a picture of the front hallway at Wilton. It's a stunning image, but one that is easily matched by a dozen or more similar sights at this remarkable property. Two hundred and fifty year-old woodwork with 250 year-old paint. Paneled interior shutters on 9 over 9 windows downstairs, 6 over 6 up. Twenty-three -- count'em -- window seats. Heart pine floor boards, never varnished and never ever sanded, that have only gotten more beautiful, and soulful, with time. Wilton will be high on the list for lovers of old architecture and historical homes. But you won't have to be a history buff to recognize that this is simply a beautiful place to slow down, breath deeply, and allow your soul to rest and then expand.
