I really loved this farmhouse.
This was a house that quickly felt like “home”.
She is the finest example of the very end of an era of exceptional American homes.
Built in the very early 20th century, almost all traces of timber framing had vanished. There were no axe-shaped beams of wood within her walls. Plastered walls and one-board wainscoting were now a thing of the past.
But, she was beautiful. Her style and proportions still echoed the past. Materials of high quality and workmanship were found throughout.
If someone asked me to design them a house similar to an old farmhouse… this would be one of my references.
