Collaboration is key in this new construction home. Nestled in between two streets, this mid century farm house has wonderful urban views out the back and considerable natural light. The traditional gable front pronounces the front door and hides access to the mudroom door from the driveway. The first floor features an open concept dining, kitchen, and family room with a spacious mudroom and dedicated home office.
The home was constructed by Hawthorn Builders in a traditional wood frame building style, but incorporates all of the more modern conveniences. Energy rated windows, spray foam insulation, cement siding and a metal roof come together on the exterior shell. While natural materials like white oak, marble, and brick work cohesively on the interior.
The front facade was purposefully created to minimize the size of the home and make sure it fit in to the scale of the surrounding neighborhood.
The main interior is open concept design meant to function as a living, dining, and kitchen space for the family and when they entertain. Clean materials were chosen and light wall colors to maximize the natural light throughout the space.
Traditionally, a bump out like this is used for a table, but we wanted to make a cosy sitting space where you can enjoy the view to the backyard and be just outside of the main living space. The ceiling is accented here in natural wood to draw interest and make the space warmer.
“The first floor has a separate home office were we flipped the exterior color palette by painting the walls black and the windows white,” says Hawthorn Builders.
Custom cabinets, shiplap, and warm brass tones make this kitchen by Hawthorn Builders very inviting and clean.
The bar adjacent the dining space highlights some whimsy with this unique backsplash made from wood penny tiles stained in different colors to match the rest of the wood tones in the home.
Master bath floating cabinets, reclaimed pine wood walls, and farm sinks carry the consistent design aesthetic throughout the home.
The children's bedrooms all have some sort of nook or space that is special. This room has a custom built-in staircase up to a reading nook.
