Farmhouse modern home gets inspiring makeover in Upstate New York

This farmhouse modern home was designed by Alisberg Parker in collaboration with builder Cum Laude Group, located in Scarsdale, a village in Westchester County, New York. Constructed in the early 1900s, this dwelling has undergone numerous additions and renovations and was in need of a new masterplan.

The floorplan was fragmented and the rooms dark and closed off from the rear yard – certainly not fitting for a family that loves to entertain and has three active boys. The owners requested that the interior of the home be a modern interpretation of the mid-century modern style, while the exterior should transform the tired colonial look and express it more like a modern farmhouse.

Approach: The original staircase was dividing the home both from front to back and side to side. By relocating it, the home’s circulation improved dramatically and offered view corridors to the outdoors and for the family’s art collection. By removing the walls between the kitchen and family room, and building a small addition, a central gathering space was created for the whole family.

Results: With the kitchen and eating area now open to the family room, with its new floor to ceiling windows and doors, this home has transformed from disjointed and dark to open and airy. White oak and walnut bring warmth to the minimalist spaces, accented by brass and stainless steel, while the black windows frame the views to the new pool terrace shaded by a cedar trellis.
