Dream House Tour: A Napa Valley inspired farmhouse in Denver

farmhouse-exterior

This Napa Valley inspired farmhouse was designed for a family of five by Hentschel Designs, located in Observatory Park, a suburb of Denver, Colorado. Elegantly styled, this 5,000-plus-square-foot house took its architectural cue from the homeowner’s many visits to Napa Valley. The open living concept is a key to quintessential California living. The first challenged the homeowner faced was to renovate a charming yet dilapidated farmhouse that was existing to the property.

After working with the project team on the redesign, the architect make the executive decision to start from scratch. The homeowner’s vision could not be created in a redesign. A new plan entailed honoring the charm of the previous home, while reclaiming some of the original elements into the home. This included doors, light fixtures and wood from an old fence. Larsen Development was responsible for building this new home.

Above: A kid’s dream, this bunk bedroom is shared by two brothers, ages six and eight. The space features bunk beds with a small staircase access, cubbies and reading lamps. This room was one of the biggest inspirations for the design of this home. It began with a picture the homeowner shared with the architects. The house was designed from this image. Across from the bunk beds, a spiral staircase leads to a play loft. A hobbit door in the loft connects to their sister’s loft — which can be locked!

Above: This cozy outdoor living room features heaters installed in the ceiling for cooler temperatures. A custom designed coffee table is repurposed from an old elm tree that was cut down to build the home. The wood was kiln-dried for eight months to make not only the table but the kitchen shelves.

Above: The homeowner is an entrepreneur and entertains a lot for both business and non-profit work. There are two kitchens inside the home as well as this fully-loaded outdoor kitchen. This space includes a sink, fridge and dishwasher. The dining table is a reclaimed piece from an old trolly from the early 1900s. Sourced from a salvage shop, a zinc top was designed for it.

farmhouse-exterior

Above: The exterior facade of this home features a reverse board and batten siding. This creates additional airflow by holding the boards an inch away from the wall. The air behind the boards keeps them dry and stable through the seasonal elements. Additionally, the reverse method creates a 5/16-inch visual gap between the board edges, giving an attractive shadow line.

The Modern Farmhouse style was popular long before anyone built one in Napa. Go to Austin some time.

Every thing all right in the house and design, except Lord Buddah statue kept in the pinnacle of the bar where alchol drinks are stored or consume in the bar is shocking, In buddism we take five promises daily and one is no alchol consumption…Buddah statue is not an ornament, please../////
