Architect Steve Zagorski designed this charming “modern farmhouse” within walking distance of downtown Austin. The listing for Milton House, as it’s called, says, “From its wraparound front porch to the giant old-growth Texas Live Oaks that shade the front and back yards, be prepared to fall in love!”
A Modern Farmhouse in Austin:
Listing agent Eileen Gill says it harkens back to a simpler time in central Texas when people sat on their porches and chatted with neighbors.
I love everything about it, from the white picket fence to the board and batten siding.
The house has 2,750 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.

I recently featured another house with white board and batten siding, but it had more of a cottage than farmhouse look:
I wonder how hard it would be to keep them looking so nice and white? We had wood siding on our first house and spent a fortune on paint. Love the look of a white house, though. Some days I start eyeing our red brick house and imagine how it would look if we painted it…but don’t tell Dave! 😉
