The five-bedroom Colonial house sits on over 17 acres of land in Litchfield, Connecticut, far away from any city hubbub. To add to the calm, the property comes with apple trees, a frog pond and mountain views.
Colonial Revival Farmhouse Front Exterior and Yard
This home would fit in perfectly anywhere in the South, but is actually located in the suburbs of San Francisco. The owners of the custom-designed residence both have Southern roots and wanted a house for their family that felt familiar.
In Potomac, Maryland, this custom home makes a memorable first impression with a circular driveway wrapping around a fountain and a noble arched front door. The home itself encompasses over 13,000 square feet with five bedrooms.
With limited space along the front façade of this home, every space that could contain plants became a planter. Framing the house with soft edges include a Japanese Maple and a Magnolia, boxwood globes, bacopa and carex grass.
An exterior wall in the kitchen was opened to create a doorway to the 900-square-foot wooden deck that comfortably fits a 10-foot concrete topped dining table, three all-weather modular sectional sofas and a five-foot concrete fire pit.
With 6000 square feet of living space, the house is plenty comfortable. And there's an additional 6,000 square feet in the property's top-of-the-line horse barn that includes an office, kitchen and full bathroom.
