A New Farmhouse

Located in Maryland, this is one of the best examples of a new house made to look old I have ever seen. A sense of rambling elegance is certainly evident with this Federal Style farmhouse. The house seems to have simple additions made over the years that stressed function over formality. 

Master Bedrooms on the ground floor are certainly becoming popular, however, the placement of this one behind the kitchen is somewhat questionable. How can the rumble of the washer and the beeping of the microwave create a quiet and still master suite?
This house displays a wonderful crispness. With its white walls, warm and inviting wood floors, as well as the plethora of windows make it exceptionally light and bright.
This transom window is perfectly placed! While the exterior may seem choppy, the interior spaces allow for easy and informal living.
