This adorable home in Key West, Florida is rich in charm and character. When the owners wanted to expand, an addition was constructed to the side and back of the property to preserve its jewel box facade.
A white picket fence stands guard at the front of this contemporary farmhouse. Complete with a tin roof, stone chimney and inviting front porch, the home is a picture of country charm. The third-story tower offers an unexpected twist in typical farmhouse design.
Painting the shutters and front door black on this traditional home creates a visual rhythm. The white picket fence and stone columns framing the white gate provide a beautiful frame for this well manicured yard.
"Our home is a hundred-year-old farmhouse that sits on about 40 acres," says Joanna Gaines, co-host with her husband Chip of HGTV's Fixer Upper. The home features casual farmhouse style with lots of repurposed vintage pieces.
This 12-acre property included a small 1960s contemporary house in original condition. The design team preserved the existing structure for use as a pool house and build a new, traditional farmhouse nearby, connecting the the two buildings with a 40-foot underground tunnel. The modern farmhouse's open porch showcases the idyllic rural view while shading the first floor interior.
