An 18th-century New York farmhouse with a beautiful restoration

historic-farmhouse-exterior

Elizabeth Roberts Architecture has renovated this 18th-century farmhouse on a sprawling property that abuts preserved wetlands in South Salem, a hamlet in Westchester County, New York. This countryside home was created for a Tribeca family who desired a weekend getaway from the daily grind of city life.

Originally constructed as a single-room cabin in 1725, this dwelling was added to several times over the years. The architect reimagined the overall site plan and organization of the farmhouse by integrating a swimming pool next to an existing barn, reconstructing and raising existing rooflines, constructing a luminous kitchen addition, and rethinking the overall layout of the dwelling.

The architects’ interventions thoughtfully preserved and highlighted original and historic elements. This entails the preservation of stunning 200-year-old wood beams in the dining room and a sleeping porch that was converted into a shower room. Historic details are beautifully contrasted with modern finishes, furnishings, and amenities.

The house is now filled with warm hues and rich wood floors and has been transformed into a comfortable and unique countryside estate.

What We Love: This New York farmhouse has been lovingly restored to provide a family with a wonderful weekend retreat. With four children, the homeowners needed a calm and peaceful escape to relax and unwind. The architect did a fabulous job of reimagining what was once choppy with unusable low ceilings to a cohesive floor plan layout with light-filled living spaces. Surrounded by nature, the family has plenty of room to roam and connect with the great outdoors.
