Dream House Tour: A Colorado farmhouse with drool-worthy interiors

farmhouse-style-home-exterior

This exquisite farmhouse style home is designed by architect Annette Martin in collaboration with Sugarloaf Building Company, located in Boulder, Colorado. The project team worked together to create this home from the ground up, that at once speaks to the Colorado landscape and the homeowner’s artful sensibility. The interior of this home is a complete twist from the traditional, pastoral aesthetic of the exterior architecture. This home is characterized by a layering of texture and color, with a beautiful mix of furnishings from different periods. Furniture and light fixtures act as art throughout the interiors. Interior designer Fern Santini was responsible for the stylish and eclectic interior styling of this gorgeous home.

The property that this house sits on was once two properties (which was the site of an old farm that became separated), and is the last property in the neighborhood before a trail system. Inspired by the properties history, the couple wished to create an agrarian design that ties into its surroundings. Ultimately, a Colorado farmhouse with a guesthouse was constructed onto the site. Due to a sloping site and Boulder’s restrictive height limitations, the project team built a detached garage, which is attached at the basement level via an underground tunnel. To keep a cohesive design aesthetic, the three seperate structures are all clad with vertical white-painted wood siding and gold/cream colored fieldstone.

The main house forms an H-plan, which is organized around three levels that steps up the site. Each level becomes increasingly more private. On the first level is the most public living spaces, including the front entryway and the living room. The second level encompasses the kitchen, dining room and playroom, while the master bedroom suite and office are on the third level—at the back of the property. The project team maximized views of this stunning property by integrating large windows throughout, drawing in natural light from all sides. Surrounding the sight are mature growth trees and the Boulder foothills.

Above: Both the interior and exterior of the farmhouse are punctuated by hand-hewn timbers that were reclaimed from barns throughout the Indiana countryside (produced in the 1830s-40s by Amish farmers). They can be found in the columns and beam, lending an authenticity to the farmhouse aesthetic.
