This fixer-upper was purchased six years ago and completely renovated from top to bottom by the homeowners. The home sits on five acres, so they call it their farmette and wanted to incorporate a little farm style into the home. The homeowners are also drawn to modern so hints of modern décor and finishes can be seen throughout.
“I like to call my style of decorating ‘modern farmhouse’ if there is even such a thing. I wanted to merge my love of both styles, and the finished product is something I feel reflects just that,” the homeowner says.
Three years ago, they totally remodeled the kitchen. Walls down. Ceiling down. They replaced a very small, dark kitchen with less cabinets, open shelves and white paint. They chose a Caesarstone that resembled Carrara marble and topped the large island with a dark Caesarstone and a farm sink. The flooring also had to be replaced so they left the hickory unstained to show its natural beauty. This year they remodeled the en suite bathroom, once again taking all walls down. The freestanding tub adds character and charm and custom-built glass-fronted cabinets finish off the look.
“Slowly this house is becoming our dream farmhouse—in the city.”
