One of my favorite new-house trends has to be the “Modern Farmhouse” style. Crisp Architects in New York built this country retreat inspired by rural farm houses with front, back and side porches to take advantage of the wooded views.
According to the Crisp Architects website, “The interior of the home has a modern feel with a window wall on one side of the double height living room.”
James Crisp says, “Our client wanted the home to be bright, open and to be a place where intimate dinner parties and large gatherings worked equally well.”
A sitting area with bookshelves overlooks the living room:
The kitchen countertops look like a mix of soapstone and wood.
“The kitchen is the center of activity, opening to a large breakfast bay, a screened porch, and the living room.”
The master bedroom has access to a screened porch, too:
I especially love the exterior of the house and all the outdoor living spaces they designed around it:
Even the garage, which doubles as a carriage house/guest quarters, is pretty to look at:
P.S. Check out this (much) smaller house Crisp Architects designed, too:
