Sitting pretty on a corner lot in suburban Illinois, this farmhouse is sure to turn some heads. Charles Vincent George Architects designed this new house to mimic classic farmhouse remodels, cladding the bottom story in stone but the top in painted wooden planks. Let's take a tour of the inside.
The farmhouse vernacular comes through with sheet metal overhangs, angular sloping roofs, and attic windows. The Craftsman-style porch and modern stone entryway are elegant details that bring this house into the 21st century.
What a light-filled kitchen! Several different food prep areas and dining tables accommodate the family's busy lifestyle and provide space for everyone to help out.
Here’s another view. You can keep your recipes on an instant index, or listen to your favorite music while you cook. Homework time in the kitchen, anyone?
Need extra storage in a small space? Transform a corridor into a pantry or utility room. The cabinetry looks like it’s non-existent, combining sliding doors with pull-out shelves for maximum access.
This table has space for eight. The huge square shape is distinct in a world where most big tables are rectangular or oval.
This family room is equally functional and chic. The unusual pista green accent wall blends well with the outdoors.
These stairway railings look like fences lining a pasture.
The master bedroom is dressed in earthy tones and natural accents, like wood, wrought iron, and chic Roman blinds.
Unlike many modern farmhouses, this one shuns away from plain white. The master bathroom features only beiges and browns.
There's a barbecue grill out back and several seating areas. This beautiful red barn with the oversized light fixture is actually the garage?
