Stunning New England farmhouse nestled on woodsy property in Maine

farmhouse-traditional-exterior

Whitten Architects are responsible for the design of this stunning New England farmhouse nestled on a wooded property in Greater Portland, Maine. Surrounded by old New England stone walls, this two-story residence provides a lifetime home for a beautiful young family of four.

The architectural design process included careful site-specific analysis and orientation of the building program so as to provide a sunny southern exposure to most of the public spaces within the house. The breakfast room and kitchen face to the east for morning sun, while the living room and dining room are oriented on the west side for evening sun. Continue below for an inspiring home tour…

The southern facade of the building is oriented obliquely at the end of a long and winding drive, providing for a welcoming approach to the building.

This is a beautiful house, but I am so sick of gray I could scream. Some color on the walls and some warmth in furnishings would transform this house from a sterile show place to a comfortable welcoming home.
