Beautifully designed modern farmhouse style in rural Vermont

This modern farmhouse was custom designed by , located in Jericho, a town in Northern, Vermont. The home was sited on the property along the edge of a small meadow, encircled by a mature growth forest.  “The site concept utilizes a modest area of the meadow as the domain of the residence and a concrete retaining wall divides the domestic from the natural landscape,” explains the architects.

The 2,900-square-foot structure was devised into a three-part composition, consisting of the home, studio and a garage. The landscaping features a parterre garden (a formal garden consisting of plant beds in symmetrical patterns, separated and connected by paths) which is edged by a garden wall and linear orchard. The structure is modeled after extended rural farmhouses that are in several areas throughout New England.

The goal for the architects was to design a home that would honor the building traditions of the region, while creating a unique perspective. “While the forms and building configurations are recognizable, they utilize contemporary, efficient building materials and methods that are economical and environmentally-friendly,” states the architects.

What We Love: This modern farmhouse showcases clean lines and a minimal design aesthetic surrounded by beautiful landscaping. Loving how the greenery from outside has been brought into the interiors in the furnishings and finishes. The wall of shelving in the great room provides a simple and stylish aesthetic that is very functional. The natural light is magnificent, the architects have created a beautiful living space for the homeowners that we would be happy to live in!… How about you, could you picture yourself living in this abode?
