Modern Farmhouse Style – Cross Plains, WI
This modern farmhouse follows the popular home style from the start with all white, cedar-grain textured exterior siding running horizontally and vertically. 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 tongue-and-groove porch ceiling.
Inside the windowed double front doors, a blend of contemporary and natural finishes creates a mood of relaxed sophistication. The foyer leads into the dining room, highlighted by large, exposed timber beams. Open to both the kitchen and great room, it is anchored by a shiplap accent wall with a window seat and a fireplace with a timber mantle.
The brick veneer fireplace surround and kitchen backsplash add weight and interest, balanced by white cabinetry and an island with a furniture chamfered base and decorative wooden legs. Cambria quartz countertops and stainless appliances finish the space, bathed in natural light from the attached screened porch.
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.
A Maple and black metal railing leads to the fully exposed lower level, encompassing two bedrooms and a bath, as well as future gym and gardening space.
