The dynamic garden composition in front of this 100 year-old stone Pennsylvania farmhouse is filled with perennials that command attention with their colorful foliage every season of the year. Euphorbia, Black-Eye Susans, and an array of textures add visual interest and color throughout the landscape.
The stone on the home is extended onto the patio. Stone containers with evergreen hedges match the rounded hedges in the landscape. The landscape design is simple, yet elegant and matches the home perfectly.
This open kitchen is part of larger living room, anchored by a great stone fireplace. Looking around, one can learn so much about the family that lives here: they love to cook, find comfort in a roaring fire and enjoy curling up with a book in their tufted armchairs.
Mortis-and-tenon timber trusses, stabilized with stainless steel collar ties, visually lower the vaulted ceiling and transform an otherwise voluminous space into a cozy escape. As if aged and weathered by the elements, timbers, washed in a finish of water and gray paint, play up the room's invented farmhouse history.
The heart of the house in this expansive Ontario estate, is the kitchen with large island, complete with incredible natural light, vaulted beamed ceilings, and an original stone two-sided fireplace where family and friends can gather.
Thanks to its position on a private knoll, this 1820s Colonial farmhouse enjoys views of treetops as well as The Silvermine River. Original stone walls wrap around the property, too, and add to the home's fairytale charm.
This cheerful kitchen uses the clean white cabinets as a base on which to layer different neutral shades and materials. The backsplash is a pretty sand-colored mosaic tile. The counters are a darker tan stone. The farmhouse sink brings a hint of country charm.
