Tour this delightful modern farmhouse with cozy details in Michigan

modern-farmhouse-exterior

This delightful modern farmhouse was designed by Visbeen Architects in collaboration with Bouwkamp Builders, located in Greenlea Park, a neighborhood in Adrian, Michigan. Spread out over two levels this 2,661 square foot home was designed to integrate into the existing vernacular of its historic surroundings.

Nestled on a corner lot, the front porch faces a lush green park, while the rear of the property is hemmed by a shared ally. All of these design restrictions made for a unique opportunity to design a home that meets the demands of today’s modern lifestyle while still fitting into the footprint of homes built one hundred plus years ago.

Certain stylistic demands were needed to be met in order to be approved for inclusion in the historic neighborhood. The existing neighborhood is abundant in Queen Anne and Craftsman style homes, so meshing these two style was the goal for the design. The front porch area features a classic bungalow / craftsman look, yet when you look at the side of the home, there are two prominent gables that harken back to the neighborhoods other dominant style, Queen Anne.

Another feature used to blend the home with the surrounding neighborhood is the garage. The garage was treated as a separate entity, with a simpler Board & Batten fenestration, which lends itself to appearing as if it was added onto the home at a later date – something fairly commonplace in a one hundred plus year old neighborhood.

What We Love: This delightful modern farmhouse offers its inhabitants and warm and inviting atmosphere for relaxed living. The architects did a fantastic job of creating an exterior facade that fits within the context of the neighborhood while also being aesthetically pleasing. An open floor plan is flooded with natural light, with clean, crisp lines and lovely furnishings and finishes throughout. Overall, we think this is a fabulous home for family living and entertaining in style and comfort.
