Hanbury Preservation Consulting served as a consultant to the Chapter 11 Trustee who was appointed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to restore and sell Carter’s Grove. In collaboration with Greg Rutledge of Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas, Hanbury Preservation Consulting monitored proposed work, construction, and costs for rehabilitation and repair. The work was performed by Colonial Williamsburg and its subcontractors and all work was subject to a preservation easement held by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.
Completed in 1755, Carter’s Grove was built for Carter Burwell. This plantation sits along the James River near Williamsburg, VA. The US National Park Service describes it as “one of colonial America's most impressive examples of Georgian architecture” noting its “exquisite brickwork and finely crafted, fully-paneled interior.”
