Mill Spring Modern Farmhouse

This light-filled modern farmhouse in Mill Spring, North Carolina serves as a relaxing refuge for its owners. The home is tucked in the countryside on a horse farm with rolling pastures and beautiful mountain landscape. Our clients wanted a home that would be cozy for them and their dogs but could also maintain a comfortable feel when hosting extended family and friends.

Different look, more farm house - too modern for Cassidy?

Photos by Todd Crawford Photography House at a GlanceWho lives here: A couple with three children, including one daughter who lives here full timeLocation: Mill Spring, North CarolinaSize: About 4,000 square feet (about 372 square meters)Designers: Duncan McPherson of Samsel Architects and Allard + Roberts Interior Design When the homeowners first saw this site on a knoll with views to the nearby mountains, they fell in love. It was the ideal perch to build a second home for vacations and a working horse farm to be run by their daughter. While they attempted to save the existing house on the site, it was beyond repair. But architect Duncan McPherson says the former structure “gave us cues as to what not to do. We ended up reorienting the new house to take advantage of views of the barn to the west, and the pastures and pond below to the north.”The house is clad in western red cedar “for durability,” McPherson says, and has a standing seam metal roof “to make that agricultural connection.” The siding was treated with a finish product that “weathers the wood to the silvery look of old barns and farm structures.” The long form to the left houses the garage, mudroom and a guest suite.

Mandy, should all of our siding go one direction? Not sure how that works...?

could go this shape as long as it could look this modern, but we don't have the ability to do the high windows, which is a big part of this look.
