Traditional Farmhouse with a Modern Twist

Located in the Garrett Park Historic District, this two-story traditional farmhouse style home has a modern twist. The simple exterior building forms, wrapped in traditional lap siding, enclose a contemporary open-concept floor plan with straight-forward, clean-lined interior design. Through the deliberate use of no-fuss minimalist detailing, coupled with an abundance of natural light, warm wood and natural stone accents, this house is able to overcome the challenges of a small “infill lot” footprint and present an open spacious modern feel. A centerpiece to the home is the custom fabricated steel stair. With raw steel stringers supporting dark walnut timber stair treads against a backdrop of sun-washed white shiplap walls, this utilitarian artwork functions to connect all three levels of the home in modern farmhouse fashion.

A wealth of natural light is provided throughout with windows stretching to the floor. Each window has been outfitted with remotely operated privacy shades which retract into hidden pockets when daylight is desired. Another nature-enabling feature built into the home is the use of sliding patio doors that pocket into the exterior wall for complete concealment and a truly seamless connection from Family room to the rear yard.
