Folk Victorian Farmhouse with Modern-Day Gothic Flair

This two story eclectically-fashioned farmhouse in Chevy Chase, Maryland sits tucked beyond what appears to be a one and a half story board and batten clad-stick Victorian carriage house. From the street below, the steeply pitched gable roof form with subtly flared eave rests quietly behind a lush, layered front yard landscape. Arched top windows and a king’s post gable truss ornament add character to this intentionally humble façade. 

Hidden slightly from street view, the home’s Gothic arch front door is situated past the Victorian carriage house and through an arched timber frame colonnade. Inside the arched front door is an open concept floor plan with a clear view to the rear yard. The farmhouse character is reflected inside with a field of roughhewed knotty wood flooring. Among the rear yard features is a double-height lofted guest cottage engaged to the main house through a covered porch breezeway. The breezeway terrace stretches out into the rear yard garden, completed with a tranquil fountain and gathering area.
