Extraordinary modern farmhouse in rural Texas by Olsen Studios


This extraordinary modern farmhouse was designed by Olsen Studios, located just West of Preston Hollow, a neighborhood outside of Dallas, Texas. The farmhouse gives the impression of a Napa Valley Estate nestled amongst the mature Pecan and Oak Trees of the Dallas countryside. On the exterior facade the gabled roof structure is comprised of board and batten, creating a nice visual balance with the textural landscape surrounding the property. The home was designed as a series of smaller pavilions that have been joined together through glass breezeways. These structures wind their way through the trees and native plantings that surrounds the site.


The property features a south facing courtyard and porch to take advantage of the beautiful Texas climate, while a north facing courtyard was designed to enjoy the cooler evenings and rural streetscape so the homeowner’s can enjoy conversation with their neighbors as they pass by for a stroll.



What We Love: A beautifully designed home both inside and out, each pavilion features intimate spaces that have a warm, welcoming feeling that caters to family living. Spacious interiors are perfect for entertaining and plenty of outdoor space through designed courtyards and patios encourages spending time enjoying nature and fresh air.

A spacious home office features a sliding antique barn door to conceal the space from the rest of the home when privacy is needed, but acts as a decorative feature when it is open.
