Mills River Farmhouse
Surrounded by mountain and pastoral views, this home was constructed with the following goals in mind: optimizing the views, creating indoor/outdoor living space, modern functionality, and a fresh, elegant take on “the modern farmhouse” style. The home’s situation on the lot and casement window placements ensure views are visible from nearly every room. A 20-foot pocketing door opens the living space to a meticulously designed outdoor living space featuring a large patio, pool, and pool/guest house with bar. Interior selections were carefully chosen to achieve a juxtaposition of historic and modern influence. Dual garages and a white exterior create a symmetrical nod to the farmhouse style.
A light, modern color palette and sleek lighting selections are paired with rich finishes and hints of rustic influence to achieve this modern farmhouse’s distinctive style. In the entryway, a dark-stained barrel-vaulted ceiling features chandelier. 10-foot ceilings throughout lend an airy, spacious feel to the home. A soaring double vaulted ceiling in the primary living space is paired with dark stained beams and a tile surround fireplace with custom live edge mantle. Custom barn doors lead into the craft room and office space. In the kitchen, rustic grays and copper pair for a uniquely modern farmhouse effect. Patterned wallpaper bring character to the Owner’s Retreat and powder bath.
