Folksy and Functional Modern-Day Farmhouse

This handsome, modern-day farmhouse fits comfortably among its leafy cul-de-sac community in Bethesda, MD, with many discreet accents expressed as practical, time-honored architectural details. The main house employs authentic materials of rustic stone and modest lap siding – contrasting textures which beautifully articulate the building’s simple forms. Roof eaves and rake molding have been detailed to punctuate the roofline in a manner distinctly lacking in pretension. 

The folksy farmhouse style radiates beyond the main house in the form of a nearby barn-red, gambrel roof accessory building. Beyond adding a playful appearance to the home, this building serves various functions for the homeowners, including a detached garage, pool house, outdoor kitchen, and incorporates a second floor guest suite as well.
