This Queen Anne inspired Shingle-style home is a welcome addition to its established “front porch friendly” suburban Maryland neighborhood. The traditional wrap-around entry porch and two-story sun-washed cedar shingle façade provide this home with an abundance of cottage-like charm.
Boasting natural light from every angle of the open concept floor plan, the interiors of this home balance a modern, clean style with decidedly traditional elements. The main stair is elegantly paneled with impeccably-detailed arched cased openings. White shaker cabinets, v-groove ceiling paneling and subway tile create a clean and timeless Kitchen, with touches of warmth from the soft grey counter, light wood floors and matching stools. Reminiscent of the black and white tile entry foyers in traditional homes, this Mudroom’s modern take mixes a clean-lined shiplap wall treatment with geometric statement tile.
Among the many unexpected features of this otherwise unassuming home is the third floor bedroom suite and open loft area. Throughout the house, the sophisticated neutral palette is offset by vibrant highlights of color and bold use of textures to add interest. The home’s minimalist style benefits from a mix of traditional elements in the form of the luxe paneling and trim work.
