Tour a colonial revival farmhouse with traditional Southern charm

Southern sensibilities inspired the design of this colonial revival farmhouse by Tim Barber Architects, located in Atherton, a town in San Mateo County, California. Its symmetric, gabled facade features shuttered windows and columns in a formal, traditional rhythm while the plan of the house is definitely 21st-century.

Each room is lined with windows to maximize natural illumination throughout the home, and a long front porch provides ample space to enjoy the sunrise and sunsets over the nearby Redwoods. The porch roof protrudes enough to provide shade during the day, while a row of lantern pendants offers plenty of light for outdoor entertaining at night.

What We Love: This colonial revival farmhouse offers a warm and inviting home for an active family of five. The project team did a fabulous job of creating a timeless design aesthetic that will be enjoyed by this family for many years to come. We are especially loving the open and spacious kitchen with its beautifully appointed appliances, serene color scheme, and casual atmosphere to creating a welcoming environment for family living.

The colonial revival farmhouse was sited so that the property’s existing oak would provide natural shade to the rear porch. A saltwater swimming pool is the perfect finishing touch to the beautiful landscape.
