A light and bright modern farmhouse inspired by estates in East Texas. The house is situated on a double corner lot on a street lined with live oaks. The house is entirely custom, with floor to ceiling windows, a large central gathering hall, herringbone wood floors in the entry, and a steel floating staircase. The home also has a large carriage house and four-car garage.
This Southern Luxe Farmhouse is nestled on a corner double lot close to White Rock Lake on a street lined with live oaks. Inspired by the southern estates of East Texas, the home combines classic elements, such as a white façade and wrap-around front porch. The home has geo-thermal heating/cooling and radiant heated flooring.
The interior blends traditional and modern details such as a floating staircase and a vintage cascading lucite chandelier in the entry. The steel “skybridge” and dramatic trusses accent the central gathering hall. The homeowners love to be outdoors and to host gatherings for friends and family. The heart of the home is a large gathering hall that encompasses the kitchen, dining and family areas. The large/open spaces and floor to ceiling windows give this home a light and bright feel.
