This Virginia townhome was probably built by James Dinsmore, master craftsman to Thomas Jefferson, and demonstrates Jefferson's inspired Palladian approach to the brick materials of the region. Reminiscent of the style of Monticello, this house consists of 2 principal floors over a basement, as well as rooms in the attic.
