The Farmhouse encourages homeowners to break away from hectic routines and appreciate a cool summer breeze under the shade of its expansive front porch, where life seems to slow down a little more. Signature Crafted Homes delivers everything but the farm animals to translate the quaint appeal of country living in this 3,971 square foot home, where the important things are valued, like quality craftsmanship and functional spaces designed to make life simpler. This energy-efficient, five-bedroom, three-bath home offers modern amenities to keep homeowners current, while encouraging them to savor every moment spent together. Tom Waller has delivered the farmhouse appeal both inside and out, with the entire first floor outfitted with shiplap, even on the ceiling in the master suite. With plenty of built-ins and 10-foot ceilings on the main level, an appreciation for details runs as freely as a colt in the open field. 
White Hardie board and batten siding is complemented with black shutters and a brick skirt on the front exterior. Fixed French doors flank the main entry on the spacious front porch, offering a nod to the home’s timeless architectural heritage. Transom windows highlight the exterior, while barn-style garage doors add to the curbside appeal. Around back, an enormous deck provides plenty of room for large family gatherings. 
Once inside, the foyer introduces a large study with a barn door entry that makes for an ideal work-from-home office. Across the way, a spacious formal dining room serves as the ideal venue for special family events with the kitchen and a large walk-in pantry easily accessible. For more casual dining, a large culinary island features seating for six and provides ample room for family members to help out with meal prep in the kitchen. Windows usher in plenty of natural light over the sink, and French doors open up to the spacious back deck. 
The open floor plan makes it easy for kitchen helpers to transition to the living room, where a beautiful hearth serves as the focal point of the space. Transoms over two fixed French doors contribute to the light, open feel of the room, which is certain to host many late-night conversations by the fire. Gorgeous hardwood runs throughout the home, reinforcing The Farmhouse’s classic design elements and craftsmanship. 
With a focus on functional living spaces, The Farmhouse features a second floor laundry where all the family members can access it. The upper level, family-friendly floor plan includes a private wing for the master suite which is beyond a hallway that leads to a unique, built-in dresser in the master entry. A vaulted shiplap ceiling highlights the sleeping chamber and a wall of triple windows illuminates the space. The master bath includes a pedestal tub and large walk-in shower with a built-in bench. Separate his-and-hers walk-in closets offer homeowners plenty of room to stay organized. Three additional bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and window nooks are featured on the second floor. A creatively designed vaulted loft space features a beautiful built-in window seat with a perfect view of The Farmhouse’s front lawn. 
The lower level includes a private guest suite and entertainment area that walks out to a spacious back porch. With plenty of room for storage the home equips its inhabitants with a place for everything. A mudroom with built-in cubbies and a large walk-in pantry further reinforce the home’s emphasis on staying organized. With beautiful spaces to celebrate formal occasions and cozy nooks to enjoy on lazy days, The Farmhouse encourages everyone to appreciate the big memory-making events as well as the ease of everyday routines that begin and end in comfort and style.
