Rot h e s ay A Gem on the James By Sande Snead

G

eorge Anderson’s earliest memory of his childhood home, Rothesay, is of cutting the field on the south end of the house — a small portion of the sprawling 8-acre estate — with a push mower, along with his father, Edward Clifford Anderson.

Anderson and his parents moved into the grand English Tudor estate at 1234 Rothesay Circle in 1934, when he was 7 years old. On Aug. 1, he and his wife, Anne, moved a lifetime of accumulated belongings out to make way for more than 30 interior designers and landscape architects to work their magic and transform the house into the Richmond Symphony Orchestra League 2010 Designer House. Rothesay was originally built by Jonathan Bryan, brother of newspaper publisher John Stewart Bryan, in 1913. The house is named for the Bryans’ grandfather’s hometown, Rothesay, in Isle of Bute, Scotland.

Jonathan Bryan marries Winifred Duffy Hayden (1888-1964) in 1911, but they have no children.

Rothesay is built for Jonathan Bryan and his wife.

Jonathan Bryan married Winifred Duffy Hayden from St. Louis, Mo., and he “took her on a trip around the world for their honeymoon. While they were gone, he had a house built for her in Richmond, but she didn’t like that she was not consulted on its design,” says Sallie-Rives McCrea, co-chair of the landscape-design committee for the RSOL Designer House. “So he built her another house, which she designed.” That house was Rothesay. Tucked behind Windsor Farms on a bluff overlooking the James River, Rothesay is just off of Douglasdale Road. However, in the 1915 Encyclopedia of Virginia Biography by Lyon Gardiner Tyler, Rothesay is referred to as Bryan’s “country place.” Bryan’s good friend and neighbor, Charles F. Gillette, a renowned Virginia landscape architect, designed the grounds. “Mr. and Mrs. Bryan initially owned all of the land now known as Rothesay Circle,” George Anderson says. “Gillette was the second person to build a house in the neighborhood, and it’s the house now owned by the Bocock family. Unfortunately, he [Gillette] lost his house to bankruptcy.”

In a nod to Gillette’s design genius, however, the 8 acres of land and gardens surrounding Rothesay have been restored and enhanced by prominent landscape architects and designers. This is a Designer House first. In 1977, Rothesay was included in the tour of Westhampton during Historic Garden Week in Virginia. According to the entry in the guidebook, architect Duncan Lee built the house. However, no one seems to have any blueprints for Rothesay. No records at the Library of Virginia or

the Virginia Historical Society were found that could confirm Duncan Lee built or designed Rothesay. Based on stories handed down about the house to him, George Anderson also believes Mrs. Bryan had a hand in its design. “Mrs. Bryan insisted that every room have a river view,” he says. McCrea adds, “She may have done some drawings or specified the size of the rooms, but there are no records of any architectural plans.” According to Virginia Architects 18351955: A Biographical Dictionary, by John E. Wells and Robert E. Dalton, “After Lee’s death in 1952, most of his office records were burned, at the architect’s request.” An early photo of Rothesay (see pages D10 and D11) shows that the house initially featured a large tower on the front, but it has since been removed. Following Jonathan Bryan’s death* in 1933, his brother, John Stewart Bryan, sold the house a year later to Edward Clifford Anderson and his wife, Isabel Walker Scott Anderson. “Isabel was an accomplished pianist, according to her obituary [in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Nov. 28, 1994],” McCrea says. “And the obit also says she was a founder and patron of the Richmond Symphony, so it is very appropriate that her son and his wife are making this magnanimous gesture for this cause.” George Anderson, Isabel’s son, remembers many a musical performance held in his childhood home, and rumor has it that Ella Fitzgerald may have even performed there once. “My mother passed on her musical talent to all three of her children,” Anderson says. “My sisters played by ear, but I play by memorizing,” he says. Randy Trainor, Anderson’s daughter and the interior designer for the Rothesay library, also remembers the music more than anything else. “I don’t remember if Ella Fitzgerald ever played at my grandmother’s house, but I do remember chairs being lined up for performances in the living room and going all the way back into the hall,” she says.

osca Roberts researched the history of Rothesay and decided that the foyer of the house should portray

the house as it was — traditional with an Old World appearance. She did not want to try

1

to make the house something it is not. “The house has been used for a number of musical events over the years, so I played on that theme,” Roberts says. “The owners have traveled the world, so I tried to express that worldliness

through music and art.” A Regency duet music stand from England along with musical instruments are highlights of the 16-by-14-foot space, but so are the carefully selected antiques and modern art, which underscore the big impact of this black-and-white marbled space.

and crystal chandelier — this is a powder room fit for a princess. One special piece is a customdesigned French sconce made by Julie Neill. “Because this is next to Holly Chasan’s ballerina room, I made this over-the-top opulent space fit for a little princess,” Andrews said. “I’ve used

Known for using industrial elements in the domestic environment, Ellen Norris of Caryatid Interiors sees beauty in ordinary objects. She has been featured in various Richmond Times-Dispatch articles over the years, and this year was also featured in Remodel magazine.

Although the La Différence desk is contemporary, it is a reproduction of a piece from the period. The ceiling is a Henri Matisse-style mural, and the room is accented with Italian retro ceramics, pottery and glass.

n Rothesay’s living room, the architecture is classical and very symmetrical. Mary Douglas Drysdale set out to create a room aligned

with tradition that also suits the present day. Drysdale arranged the principal furniture grouping around the fireplace. Her design features two opposing sofas with two sets of chairs facing them. The room also includes a secretary designed by Drysdale and a custom-stencilled floor. Some pieces are antiques, but contemporary art provides contrast. “There is not a lot of natural light,” Drysdale says, “so I’ve made the room very light with upholstered furnishings in white, off-white and creamy tones, while the floors are cognac with an orangey tone. I picked up the color of the floor with accent pieces.” Mary Douglas Drysdale has won numerous awards, including “Innovation in the Traditional Style” from Traditional Home Magazine. House Beautiful named her as one of its top designers in America for five years running. In 2001, she was selected by Architecture and Interiors magazines as one of the top practicing designers in the country.

furnishings and accessories are eco-friendly. “All of the furnishings are made of sustainable woods, and the upholstery is all cottons or linens,” Trainor says.

He relocated to New York, where his talent garnered positions with Scalamandre, Lee Jofa, ABC Carpet & Home, and Gracious Home.

They used the shorter part of the porch’s L-shape to create an elegant outdoor parlor and — where the lines of the L-shape intersect — placed three café tables to define the different seating areas. “We partnered with Summer Classics on this project, so we are using outdoor furniture that looks like it would go in someone’s living room,” Ramon Hardy says. “We also are using custom furniture we fabricated at Accent Draperys.”

Sculptors

Paul DiPasquale’s (pauldipasquale.info) proof castings of the children from his Arthur Ashe sculpture on Monument Avenue can be seen in the Children’s Garden. He also created the monumental fiberglass bust, Connecticut, which overlooked Richmond’s baseball stadium, The Diamond. The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Md., as well as numerous corporate collections, own and display DiPasquale’s sculptures.

Tom Chenoweth (astradesign.com), whose piece, Gnomon, is on display at Rothesay, was a founding member of 1708 Gallery and has exhibited his work extensively in Virginia and beyond. Chenoweth is well-known in the Richmond area for his functional metalwork including furniture, gates, railings and fences.

Jillian Holland (myspace. com/sculpturebyjill) has five pieces of sculpture at this year’s Designer House. Several exhibitions of her work are on display from Louisa to Virginia Beach. Holland also worked as a crew member on Neptune in Virginia Beach with Paul DiPasquale.

Bradley Robinson (bradleyrobinson.us) shows his piece Paulo and Francesca for this year’s Designer House. Robinson has carried out commissions for several national institutions, including the Washington National Cathedral, Rice University, and Washington and Lee University. He participated in the upcoming documentary Masters of the Building Arts and is preparing for his first solo exhibition in 2011 at Page Bond Gallery.

Bill Thomsen (billthomsen@ earthlink.net), a metal sculptor specializing in wildlife-inspired works, made several pieces for the Designer House. Each sculpture is made of steel and is cut, shaped and welded by hand. These one-of-a-kind designs are then signed and dated.

WHAT IS passing down your values as well as your assets

WORTH?

how is worth measured? Is it simply total assets minus total liabilities? At U.S. Trust, we believe affluence should be measured not only by net worth, but by the things in life that take on a worth all their own. And we apply our intellectual resources and financial acumen toward helping clients realize that worth. Because we believe you deserve more than wealth management — you deserve worth management.
