Modern Farmhouse Style – Cross Plains, WI
This modern farmhouse follows the popular home style from the start with all white, cedar-grain textured exterior and mix of horizontal lap and vertical board and batten siding. Set just off a main thoroughfare west of Madison, Wisconsin, its covered front porch and dual A-frame roofline with dormer convey even from a distance the simple lifestyle so many desire. A closer look reveals accents including gooseneck lamps, gable brackets and a pine beadboard porch ceiling.
Inside the windowed double front doors, a flood of natural light and blend of contemporary and natural finishes creates a mood of relaxed sophistication. The foyer leads into the dining room, which is open to both the kitchen and great room and highlighted by large, Maple wrapped beams with a natural finish. A shiplap accent wall, complete with a window seat and a fireplace with a timber mantle, anchors the great room.
The brick veneer fireplace surround and kitchen backsplash add weight and interest, and are balanced by white kitchen cabinetry and a furniture chamfered island base with decorative wooden legs. With Cambria quartz countertops and stainless appliances, the kitchen feels both cozy and open. The attached screened porch brings the outside in.
Also on the main level are a mudroom, pantry, laundry, powder room, and master suite. Maple cabinets with a Kona finish, quartz countertops, a uniquely tiled walk-in shower and a soaking tub lend a relaxing atmosphere in the master bath. A spacious second-floor loft and first floor away room provide private escapes within this unique, angled-footprint floorplan.
A Maple and black custom metal railing leads to the fully exposed lower level, encompassing two bedrooms and a bath, as well as future gym and gardening space.
