Farmhouse modern home offers tranquil oasis on shores of Lake Geneva

This farmhouse modern home was designed by , located on the shores of Lake Geneva, in southeastern Wisconsin. The design for this residence was inspired by Wisconsin’s agricultural heritage. The home is set on a hillside, where there is a 10-foot drop from the front to the rear of the house. Extending down the hillside are three stories of glass, framing captivating views of the glistening lake. The area is surrounded by old-world farmhouses, so the concept of farmhouse-modern fit well into the architectural style of this home.

Considering the scale of the home and the expanses of glass, the plan also needed to incorporate current elements. The overall design references the local vernacular, featuring classic gables, stained cedar wood siding and indigenous stones on the exterior facade. On the interior, highlights include hand-hewn beams and exposed timbers. These elements help to create a stylish yet tranquil feel to this countryside oasis. Another nod to farmhouse style is the series of stone walls that connects the garden to the entryway and in through the great room and out to the backyard staircase.

What We Love: This stunning farmhouse modern home is surrounded by beautiful gardens and a peaceful lakeside setting. Large expanses of picture windows helps to capture the idyllic views and invite nature inside from almost every angle. The project team did a fantastic job of infusing the farmhouse vernacular architecture into this home while incorporating modern elements. Overall this home is gorgeous both indoors and out, we would love to reside in this oasis… Readers, how about you? What details in this home caught your eye and why? Tell us in the Comments!
