Dream House Tour: An exceptional modern farmhouse in rural Texas

modern-farmhouse-exterior

This exceptional modern farmhouse was designed by DEMESNE, 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 surround the site. Set on 0.57 acres, this home encompasses 3,444 square feet of living space, with three bedrooms and four bathrooms.

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 homeowners can enjoy conversation with their neighbors as they pass by for a stroll.

What We Love: This exceptional modern farmhouse offers beautifully designed spaces both indoors 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.
