This stylish modern farmhouse is a contemporary take on the homeowner’s childhood home. Julie Bledsoe, lead designer at Dwell Designed Construction, says, “Many features and ideas were inspired by a 200-year-old farmhouse up North. That’s the feel we were going for, but in a modern way.” Straight lines and simple details are executed to perfection to create a simple yet elegant appearance. Inverted board and batten siding provides a cleaner look than traditional board and batten. Modern garage doors and large black-framed windows add a fresh, contemporary touch to this nostalgic project. Meanwhile, a gabled portico with exposed cypress woodwork and a herringbone-patterned landing create a charming entrance.
